1979 Mod Legends

Secret Affair (Ian Page, Dave Cairns, Dennis Smith & Seb Shelton) formed in 1978 from their previous incarnation as the “power pop” band New Hearts .

In a period of a little over two years, they posted five releases in the UK Singles Chart, and released three albums.


The debut single “Time For Action” sold over 200,000 copies and reached number 13 in the UK chart, putting them at the forefront of the mod revival movement. More chart success followed with “Let Your Heart Dance”, “My World” and “Sound Of Confusion”.


They also drew up plans for a smart-dressing youth movement – the Glory Boys – based around the idea of 1960s gangster chic, influenced by the movie, Performance.

They told you once, twice, three times now that's enough

When you talk about British blues legends, the name Nine Below Zero will be on most lips.

Formed in 1979 the band have become the #1 R&B band in the UK, mixing a love of blues classics and with a back catalogue that stretches across many albums and singles the band returned late in 2019 to celebrate 40 years together with a tour and a new album 'AVALANCHE'.

Heavy Soul! Records was more than happy to assist the band with getting the vinyl version out


The sound of youth today!

Does this sound familiar?

A young, driven three-piece, managed by enthusiastic parent. Gigging constantly whilst composing and recording music that reflects their youth whilst looking at the bigger picture?

Ring any bells? 

SUBCULTURE came from the Nottingham / Derby area and have been steadily developing an energetic following who now come to every gig the 17 year olds put on. Inspired by Mod and all that encompasses the future is looking very (English) Rosey for the band.


The band had four singles out on Heavy Soul Records before a name change to SHARP CLASS at the beginning of 2020.

Constantly gigging, the first LP has been released and album #2 will follow in 2024.

A little bit of Rhythm with a lot of Soul

How's this for a bit of pedigree:

Take half of '80s Mod legends MAKIN' TIME, add a thoroughbred guitar section on lead and bass  and you have the melting pot of genius that is THE DEEP SIX.

MARK 'SYD' McGOUNDEN wrote, sang and played guitar on many of the leading 1980s Mod band Makin' Time's classic tracks that appeared on ace LPs like 'RHYTHM & SOUL' and 'NO LUMPS OF FAT OR GRISTLE GUARANTEED', all kept in time by NEIL CLITHEROE'S impeccable timing on the drums, and with new recruit ADE MARTIN combined with NIALL KEOHANE on bass, the quartet provide a powerhouse of 60s pop mixed with Psyche and Beat that make the band one of the most popular on the live circuit today.

Album number three has just been recorded and looking at a late 2023 / early 2024 release time.


Yorkshire's finest

Four singles, two albums and not one the same!

An eclectic mixture of Rock N Roll, Punk, B-Movie madness, Rhythm & Blues, West Coast Rock, Psyche and Indie the Leeds based band have built up a strong following thanks to their electrifying live sets and rather jolly collection of songs
