The Getaway Team in Staines
The Getaway Team, The Hobgblin, Staines May 29 2008
The Getaway Team from Guildford are here to write music and have the time of their lives!
They started writing together in mid 2006, and found a knack of producing some catchy pop songs, with some pop-punk and indie thrown in!
In the past few months they have started playing those songs in what has become an exciting, adrenaline-fueled live show. The band have recently finished recording a debut mini album titled ‘Haven’t You Heard’, out June 2nd.
The Debut single ‘Lost All Hope’ will hit shops on May 5th, available for download and on limited Green vinyl, with a postcard and stickers inside; so make sure you hook yourselves up!
See them live in Staines on the 29th at The Hob or on:

Kakuzi (formally known as DARK-FiRE) formed with the current line up in September 2006, jamming out just a few of songs to enter their first gig as a band in the Mole Valley Battle of the Bands. Since then the band has been through a short phase of high energy raw punky rock music, to exploring new dimensions and styles of music. They have really honed in their live set, gigging regularly at the Grey Horse, Kingston and other venues around Guildford and Surrey. Their first E.P, “Senses” can be bought off them at any of their gigs for £5 each.
Currently the band are back in the studio recording a variety of tracks for an E.P. titled “Corridors”.

Wonder at Prog-Rock Legends ‘Haze’ at Kingston
Haze -May 31 2008 8:00P The Peel (30th anniversary show) Kingston
Formed in 1978 by Chris and Paul McMahon, Haze were one of the founders of the neo-progressive revival of the early 1980s. The band went through a number of line-up changes until drummer Paul Chisnell joined in 1983, completing the classic line-up which was to remain unaltered until the band’s demise in 1988. On 31st May 1998 Haze reunited for a 20th anniversary concert in Sheffield and now you can be part of the history-of-haze by seeing them on their 30th anniversary reunion.
Although part of the 1980s “progressive” revival, Haze were always much more than just another Yes/Genesis clone, moving with ease across the spectrum from rock to funk, pop to progressive in their own distinctive style. World Turtle have continued in this tradition, bringing modern sounds and influences, as well as powerful, intelligent lyrics to the brothers’ undoubted musical and songwriting skills.
On 31st May 1998 Haze reunited for a 20th anniversary concert in Sheffield. The show was a great success and was recorded for a limited edition double live CD on Cyclops Records. Since then the band have headlined a number of shows in Sheffield, supported IQ and John Wetton at the Whitchurch Music Festival and toured Italy, Belgium & Switzerland twice.
The band are now planning a European tour, a new live CD, and the re-issue of their “Stoat & Bottle” album.
