David Icke sample track by Binary Zero called The 5th Objective - a former
Track of the Month on Under the Radar.

Track - Look At That Ass, Action Group

Action Group's roots lie in the Art School scene, where the band formed 4 years ago. A DIY attitude and a penchant for buying gadgets and percussion from second hand shops, has helped create their alternative electro sound.
They successfully mix electronic beats, percussive instruments with Pixies inflected rock and quirky acoustic indie - BBC Radio 1's Vic Galloway is a huge fan and put their debut album 'Greed' in his top 25 albums of the year.
The prolific 4 piece have also been writing for TV. They are a formidable
live act who utilise a range of instruments, sounds and visuals to create a jaw-dropping performance

The band is currently recording their next album, due for release on an as yet un-named Major label early next year.

Track - Frozen Fireworks, Kaser

Keser are a Scottish band from Edinburgh, UK. Keser was formed by Kevan Whitley and Gavin Dick, and debuted in 2005.
