The AnomaliesThe Anomalies are a seriously cool English hip hop/breakbeat/indie band. They’ve toured supporting Lethal Bizzle and dan le sac Vs. Scroobius Pip and have drawn quite a following. Live, they’re very entertaining often freestyling about items the audience offer them. The Anomalies have released a bunch of singles already but their debut album is out today. (20/04/09)

The video below has Crowe beatboxing at the start to introduce their set. You might have seen himon Britain’s Got Talent a while ago. He can do some immense stuff with a harmonica.

Son Of DaveSon of Dave is a one man hip hop/blues band. It’s the solo project of Crash Test Dummy’s Benjamin Darvill.

He released the first album ‘B. Darvill’s Wild West Show’ in 1999 and then albums called ’01’, ’02’ and ’03’.

It’s a really good sound mixing harmonica, beat boxing and foot stomping and using tape loops to do it all on his own live. You can listen to 01, 02 and 03 on Spotify.
