Crimea Related Bands Update

Aussie band Project Winterhaven have a new website. For those of you who don’t know, PWH are the band fronted by Crimea lead guitarist Julz Parker, her brother Joe on bass and Gold Coast Rock Award winner Chubby Winterhaven on drums. Get over to for the new site, new photos, new mp3s and general new newishness.
The Steophonics have sacked their drummer Stuart Cable as he’s been spending too much time doing other things such as Cable TV, which the Crimea featured on earlier in the year. Hopefully they don’t sign up Owen again as they did when Cable pulled out of their tour of Japan.
Aber band The Keys have a new self titled album coming out very soon, and as I write a track from the album is being played on Radio 1. They also have some gigs coming up in early October so check their website for more details.
And by the looks of it this is very old new, but it’s brand new to me so… Ex Llama Farmers singer Bernie Simpson has a new band (who by now have probably split up too). They’re called Vizzini and er.. that’s about it.
If anyone would like to contribute some news or, even better, help me out with the site, get in touch with me at People with an interest in the band, time to spare and enough knowledge to cope with some roughly put together HTML would be good, but frankly, any nutter’ll do.

Back To The News

Now I’m officialy a Uni student and have settled into my room, and everything’s back to full working order (except BF1942, fucking uni firewalls), it’s time for some new Crimea news. Woohoo. :o \
Owen’s been interviewed by SoundsXP and it’s a good read with loads of new info. Can you believe that your favourite band could have been called Fat Camp Heroes? Yes? Ok then… Either click here for the online article or [More] for inaudible’s version.
There’s a review of the Kerrang! Weekender festival at CMUonline’s site. The festival happened so long ago I can’t remember if I’ve even posted a link to that review before. But by all means read it again by clicking here or [More].
And the band are out on tour again. [Cue cheers of excitement and women bearing their breasts outside the bands flat] Yey. The details have already been posted on the gigs page but I’ve been ordered to make the dates more public so here you go…
