Also, in Hot Press Online's 'New Music' section, the first band listed is one called 'Larocca', and in the band description, they had this to say:
"[The band] is a supercharged blend of high-octane guitar and keyboard-driven melody topped off with the harmonic punch of Supergrass, the sexy swagger of Bowie and - where required! - more balls than Prince and AC/DC combined."
That sounds like quite the mixture! Check them out if you can.
