Those who miss WU LYF may find solace in Stay Bless, a London-based act led by George Cassavetes of Family. Their sound is stunningly euphoric, combining symphonic elements and "modern production techniques" inspired by Actress and Darq E Freaker (similar to that of WU LYF, though slightly tamer and leans more towards pop), with lush [...]

WU LYF drummer JoeManning, bassist Tom McClung, and guitarist Evans Kati have a new band - Los Porcos!
Manchester's WU LYF shocked many when they broke up suddenly last November, but few were left more bewildered than members of the band themselves. Frontman Ellery Roberts revealed that the band were "dead" in a cryptic message posted on Facebook, with little heard from him since. But now drummer Joe Manning has spoken to NME about the situation leading to the break up. "We all knew it wasn't working. There's no one explanation for it. There's a million [...]
When WU LYF 's frontman Ellery Roberts announced the band had split via the message "WU LYF is dead to me" - what did the other members of the band think? Well courtesy of an interview with NME , we finally find out what we suspected all along... they were pretty confused. "We all knew it wasn't working," says drummer Joe Manning. "There's no one explanation for it. There's a million reasons that don't amount to much more than it just didn't work. No one is trying to cover anything up. [...]
They're not WU LYF. They're Los Porcos. In case you were sad about the break-up of WU LYF, there is now some reason for rejoicing. The band's former members (minus frontman Ellery Roberts)...
Wu Lyf broke many hearts last year ( mine included ) when frontman Ellery Roberts posted a public letter to the band announcing his departure. As NME reports , this letter was actually the first time that the rest of the band (Joe Manning, Tom McClung, Evans Kati) heard of this, and it was obviously a big shock to all involved. Well, Wu Lyf are no more, but the rest of the band are still together and have formed a new band titled Los Porcos . Their sound features the same tune and style of [...]
World Unite Lucifer Youth Foundation. A finales de 2012, el vocalista de WU LYF , Ellery Robert , publicó un video en el que declaraba que dejaba la banda y que para él estaba muerta. Meses después, el resto del grupo: Evans Kati , Tom McClung y Joe Manning estrenan banda nueva, Los Porcos . El trío dejó las canciones viscerales llenas de enojo y las cambió por un sonido más amigable y soleado. "Do You Wanna Live?" podría ser un himno californiano, mientras que "Jesus Luvs U Baby" [...]
Taking a bit of time away from the Jai Paul soap opera that is currently unfolding on Twitter , someone that has caught our eye of late is Manchester's Ménage à Trois , who, after releasing a pretty great cover of Bee Gees "Islands In The Stream", has shared another new song in "Monument". continue reading >>
Still trying to fill that Wu Lyf void? Well here's just what you need. Wu Lyf affiliates Tom, Joseph, and Evans have teamed up with members from FAMY and Profondo to create a new "Disco House Pigs" project, Los Porcos . Based in New Pork City, the oddball supergroup have released two tracks, "Do You Wanna Live?" and "Jesus Luvs U Baby." The two songs give off a dreamy '70s vibe and features some killer guitar solos and funky riffs.
Los Porcos about page on their Facebook simply says "Disco House Pigs" and features a photoshopped picture of David Letterman holding up their album artwork for their single Jesus Luvs U Baby . If you can't sense the irreverence of this band at this yet you need to readjust your sarcasm detector. The band is side project of WU LYF members Tom, Joesph, and Evans as well as some band members from FAMY and Profondo . From the sound of their initial release, Los Porcos is a pretty giant [...]
Los Porcos come from "New Pork City", a wild guess will have you find the real original city. Their members Tom, Joseph and Evan from WU LYF as well as three other members from FAMY and Profondo call themselves "Disco House Pigs". They got something rather extra-ordinary going on. Who said Disco House was dead and long gone ? Well they're about to rock it out with some quality tracks and believe me, their debut track is insanely good, it's called 'Do You Wanna Live?' and you can hit play just below to embrace the awesome dollops you're about to hear [...]
Los Porcos , formés sur les cendres encore incandescentes des feus WU LYF (Tom, Joseph et Evans) auxquelles s'ajoute certains membres de FAMY et Profondo , viennent de dévoiler leurs deux premiers titres Do You Wanna Live? et Jesus Luvs U Baby . Ne vous fiez surtout pas au nom du groupe, résolument plus pop que rock et bien loin de l'univers WU LYF, leurs deux morceaux sonnent bien, très bien même, en particulier Do You Wanna Live ? . Titre funky aux relents de 70′s, brillamment fantasque [...]
Super-group Los Porcos (featuring members of WU LYF, FAMY and Profondo) have unveiled a couple of new tracks in the form of 'Do You Wanna Live?' and 'Jesus Luvs U Baby', both of which seem to hit the jangly, 70s throwback 'scene' firmly on the head. It's definitely more 'pop' than 'rock', though qualites from both sides of the fence (think Mac De Marco and Unknown Mortal Orchestra etc) are showcased here. There's no set release date for the material, but you can stream both tracks below.
We all remember WU LYF's unfortunate demise towards the back end of 2012, don't we? Well, minus lead singer Ellery Roberts, the trio are back alongside friends FAMY (and Profondo) to form new group Los Porcos . continue reading >>
Meet Los Porcos , self-proclaimed "Disco House Pigs" - which is actually some kind of supergroup featuring members of WU LYF , FAMY and Profondo. Their sound is nothing like any of those, but in fact a funky, disco'ish, '70s-hinting sort of folk meets pop. Or in their own words: "relaxed, feminine and fun combining a sense of tradition and a modern eclectic attitude that says "who cares it's only rock n roll, but I like it!" Meet the band's first two outputs Do You Wanna Live? and Jesus Luvs U Baby [...]
As you've probably read, My Chemical Romance announced earlier this week that they were going their separate ways, and this morning singer Gerard Way published a lengthy missive explaining the reasons behind the split, along with a whole bunch of other stuff about coffee, birds, talking amplifiers, and acting on stage. As far as these kinds of statements go, it's really pretty great — honest, funny, and heartfelt — and it got us thinking about some of the more notable breakup announcements of our time. Some of these are funny, some of them gloriously [...]
So BONDAX are back in style... Wait? Who are Bondax again? Well although they seem to sound like they're a stationery company, they are in fact one of the most talked about acts at the moment. And it's no wonder why - considering that their latest single, 'Gold', is some next level beats loving goodness. You may have heard of this Lancaster duo before from us, and that's probably because we're one of the many outlets playing their tracks on loop whilst salivating all over pictures [...]
