Swarf is an electronic band from Brighton, Sussex. The lineup is Liz Green (vocals and lyrics), Andrew Stock (synths, programming) and Chris Kiefer (synths, programming).
After a 2004 UK tour with Ultravox veteran John Foxx  the band released Art, Science, Exploitation, Swarf's first and only full album to date. Several tracks were produced by Marc Heal of Cubanate.
The band's original following stemmed from the Goth and Industrial genres, but the band themselves never followed the scene's usual cliches. More recently the group have moved away from their original audience and seem to have found a niche in the dance scene , featuring on several Trance compilation albums.
Blue October play emotionally fuelled, synth electro pop. Fusing electronic wizardry and wild guitar with cool, underlying dance grooves. A diverse repertoire of songs charged with melody, harmony and rhythm. Deep, meaningful lyrics tinged with sadness, but always full of hope. Songwriting of the highest quality stands out like a warning beacon in the roughest of oceans.
Contrasting sonics and dynamics, galvanised with tunes from heaven produce a live set riddled with edge and aggression. Nic Johnston superbly flushes out every ounce of angst with his cutting, precision guitar work.
