Ruby's Crazy Month, The Other Bands, Polar Bear

Yes y'all,

Been some crazy developments in the EC camp this last week...

Our very own Miss Ruby Wood has been asked to sing with the mighty Bonobo as he takes his live band around Europe throughout April! Not only that, but she is currently smashing a UK tour with live dubstep outfit Submotion Orchestra. Needless to say we are all mighty proud of her...she is gonna be a new superstar!


Part of the magic of Extra Curricular is that everyone rocks shows with other groups, it's part of what makes our sound.... that crazy mix of influences. So, I thought I'd take this opportunity to show you the other side of the group... the other bands...

Jack Flash - critically acclaimed MC/producer in his own right, 2009 EOW World Champion, too many releases to list here but be sure to check his recent Sound Of Colours project - DEEP.

Thabo Mkwananzi - has sung with all manner of established MC's and producers, recently started an acoustic soul group called Thabo and The Real Deal

Noah Burton - songwriter, promoter, producer, and pretty much anything else creative he can turn his hand to. Check out the amazing music Noah and Ruby make together and his work in The Great Argument

Martin Chung - a guitar wizard and highly in demand. Check out his work with the Nu Popes, his personal Soundcloud, and his upcoming tour with legendary singer Sanchita Farruque.

Jack Button - bass player for Project Sunset, producer and DJ for Noji although I tend to spend most of the other half of my musical life as a teacher and educator these days.

Greg Nicholas - the man for brass, both a performer in UK big bands and an educator. Check his personal Myspace.

John Waugh - composer and session player, check out his work for Yoruba along with his personal Myspace.

Tim Garrud - the newest member of Extra Curricular, he came to our attention through his brilliant work with live grime outfit and BBC Introducing favourites The:Foot:Clan.

A few links for you to check out there then, it goes without saying that we are just a bit keen on making music :)

-----POLAR BEAR-----

We are supporting the phenomenal Polar Bear in their new project with MC Jayger. They're making some crazy, heavy-hitting live hip hop mixed with that unique blend of jazz, punk, and electronics that Polar Bear are so famed for. We are VERY excited about this show, however, the night starts early (it's a Thursday night ya know!) so make sure you come through at 8pm to catch our set!
