Sunways are an intense alt.rock trio from South Africa. While their explosive post grunge rock is enough to make the Vines shudder, there are some truly delicious atmospheric and romantic moments that recall Placebo and the mellower side of Smashing Pumpkins. The band formed March 1998 on sugar plantation in South Africa called "Sunways". They performed extensively throughout SA through 1998, and soon signed a deal with Tic Tic Bang. They became one of the biggest alternative bands in South Africa, developing a fantastic live reputation due to their high energy and crazy on-stage antics. They are now based in Ireland and are taking Europe by storm. One of the best live acts on the circuit, not to be missed.

Tweak have recently been exported to London permenantly follolwing a 6 year career in their home of South Africa that has earned them a large and loyal following. The power chord thrashing four piece embrace elements of nu-metal, EMO and classic rock that is sure to establish them as a serious rock contender in the capital, just as they were in SA.

Nine Miles Wide New up & coming rock band inspired by the classic rock of Led Zep, Guns 'n' Roses and other such delights.
