Drugstore

“I’ve spent the past 7 years trying to climb out of a dirty skip. Now, I’m finally ready to unleash some of Drugstore’s beautiful medicine back into the world.  I’ve got a bunch of cool new cowboys in the ranch and we’re ready to roll the usual Drugstore mayhem of alcohol, cigarettes and broken hearts,” - Isabelle Monteiro.

Attitude is Everything are delighted that Drugstore are our special guests for our Club Attitude Showcase as they launched the pilot project of Attitude is Everything, way back in September 2000 at Dingwalls.  For 10 years they have remained firm supporters and advocates for what we do.

Drugstore was born in 1993 when Brazilian born Isabel Monteiro and American drummer Mike Chylinski, two drifters in a succession of bands, met via a flatshare. Just before the release of their highly acclaimed 1st single “ALIVE”, Daron Robinson joined as their guitarist.  They soon signed a major deal with GoDiscs and released their first album “Drugstore” to rave reviews. 

Following the sale of GoDiscs to Polygram, in 1998 the band released their second album “White Magic for Lovers” on RoadRunner Records.  The album featured “El President”, the duet with Thom Yorke, which propelled the band into the charts.  In 2002, the band released their third album “Songs for the Jetset” on yet another label, Global Warming. The album was well-received by the press, and widely acknowledged as their best.

Following a mysterious 7 year gap, the band returned in 2009 with a sell-out gig at London Dingwalls.  In January 2010, Isabel Monteiro announced a new-line up and the mystery of the dramatic band disappearance was explained in Monteiro’s intimate and compelling blog: ‘Anatomy’ (isabelmonteiro1.blogspot.com).

“She looks the voodoo star, but unlike her kooky easy forgotten contemporaries, Monteiro has the voice, music, intelligence and attitude to boot, with the vampish sexuality of Nico with the world-weary femme fatality of Marianne Faithful” - NME

La Rebla Fam

www.myspace.com/lareblafam

Hailing from the four corners of the city and drawing their influences from the four corners of the globe, this bunch of vertically challenged misfits came together with one aim in mind: to spread the word. Viva!

All that matters is the glorious, infectious energy these boys are injecting into the capital, like a delicious shot of skank-flavoured adrenaline straight to the heart.

Bug Prentice

www.myspace.com/thebugprentice

Bug Prentice is a three-piece band straddling Oxford and London like some crazy bow-legged godzilla. Their influences range from Deerhoof to John Coltrane, via Woody Allen and Futurama.
You may recognise the many (well, three) faces of Bug Prentice: Stephen Gilchrist can be seen drumming in Jennifer Gentle and Queen Adreena, while Ruth Goller plays bass in Acoustic Ladyland and The Final Terror. Guitarist Ally Craig has also been known to play solo sets in and around Oxford.

“From brutal guitar assault to sudden, precipitous silence; from all-out drum battery to bathetic handclaps. [They understand] contrast well enough to be witty with it” - Heavy Soil

DJ Void

In 1996, DJ Void first experienced Drum & Bass whilst at University in Hull through the New Horizons events.  After getting his own decks, things progressed swiftly and led to a series of international events from Belgium to the USA, and appearances at Pure Science, “Best of British” at Bagley’s, HQ, Raindance, Cargo, Electrowerkz and The Big Chill Bar.  Radio experience includes featuring for a year on London's leading Drum & Bass station, Rude FM 88.2, being featured in the mix of BBC 1Xtra's Breaking New Talent slot, being Artist of the Week for internet station StaticProgress.com and being the special guest on San Francisco's Pirate Cat Radio.
