The Fractions [UK]

They are from Manchester. Play positive and energetic ska punk/ska-core tunes. First i thought vocals are too sweet for my taste, but later then i really liked them a lot. Finally got everything together. I think the newer stuff the better. Last Release is tremendous, support em if u can.

Joe - guitar, vocals; Graeme - guitar, vocals; MJ - bass, vocals;
Ewan - trombone, vocals; Alec - trumpet; Matt - drums.

Husbands AKA [USA]

Burlington, Vermont.
Earlier this year one of these guys contacted me, got back to them just now.
Nice ska punk, some songs reminded me of The Good Skamaritans (especially Fall Down) but mostly their music is angrier and more old school and that's good. I really enjoy most of the songs. They've also released lighter EP Swift Street, even though i don't like it, u can still check out the songs from it on myspace.

Dylan - vocals; Sean - guitar; Tyson - guitar, keys;
Chris - bass; Alex - drums.
