Nathan Howard This is a local band, I've actually played with these guys and they are all really sound, they take elements from different genres of music and put it into a melting pot.

Adam Jackson One of the best bands to come out of Bath in recent years and certainly the best post-rock band in the area. Sadly no longer active; this is the closest they came to a proper EP. Favorite track: Sculpture Culture.

Track Name: Infinite
I'll be the one to change your mind,
A gap between the lines of black and white,
And I'm that tingle down your spine,
A flood of colour into blinded eyes,

Give me a reason.

I am the darkness,
I am the light,
I bring the morning and I bring the night,
And I'm those tingles down your spine,
A gap between the lines of space,
Of Space and time,

Give me a reason.

When your lies fall through,
And there's nothing left to prove,
Give me a reason,
To believe in you.
Track Name: Sculpture Culture
You can't keep ignoring us,
Like a novel without a lead role,
You call it a simple twist,
When in fact it's just a plot hole.
You can't keep ignoring us,
Like a novel without a lead role,
You call it a simple twist,
When in fact it's just a plot hole.

Innocence is bliss my friend,
And we're a mark you can't ignore,
I'm just trying to put the pieces back,
To where they were before,
This sculpture culture lack of thought,
That I think we all adore,
But our books have more than cover prints,
So put down Biff and Chip,
Let's read something more mature.

Correction is not my strong point,
But I think you'd say the same,
These paper trails remind me of mistakes I should've made,
These plot twists are points I've missed,
And for that I feel ashamed,
The chords behind these words are proof,
That there's an effort and an aim.

Innocence is bliss my friend,
And we're a mark you can't ignore,
I'm just trying to put the pieces back,
To where they were before,
This sculpture culture lack of thought,
That I think we all adore,
But our books have more than cover prints,
So put down Biff and Chip,
Let's read something more mature.
Track Name: Samson
Flip the switch off,
We'll talk in the dark,
These artificial lights make communication hard,
And my charms are trapped somewhere,
Just behind my tongue,
Social ineptity and the joys of being young.
How did it come to this,
How did it get so far?
You left a trail of lies burning in your path,
You said it's dark outside,
And I don't care.
You don't need light in an argument,
And that's why I'm here.

And I'll scream at the top of my lungs,
I've never had faith in anything.

You turn the lights on,
And burn out my eyes,
Another casualty of a sheltered life,
Another wasted night,
Screaming at the wall,
I'm not a pessimist I'm just angry and bored.

And I'll scream at the top of my lungs,
I've never had faith in anything.

We were broken you and I,
A different day,
The same lie,
It will always be the same,
Different blood,
The same name.

I've never had faith in anything
