About Star Belgrade

From their MySpace page:

Formed in February 2006, Star Belgrade have had a fantastic opening to their career. Before even releasing a record, the group acquired a cheerleader in the form of BBC DJ, Steve Lamacq who playlisted a home recorded demo tape of their song "Red Arc"

"It just goes to show you that you don't necessarily have to go into a big, expensive 24 track studio to make something that will grab people's attention... that track is a real grower."
- Steve Lamacq, BBC Radio 1

Subsequently, they recorded a session with the influential French station, Aligre FM which enjoyed heavy rotation alongside A-listers such as David Bowie & Interpol. Their demos continue to be broadcast on radio stations & podcasts throughout Europe, the UK & the USA, including Alison Curtis who described their music as "brilliant!".

Downloaders have proved no less eager to embrace Star Belgrade's music. Since their debut on the Irish music website, CPU.ie, their songs have been downloaded by an incredible 18,700 listeners, charting them as the site's most downloaded unsigned Irish band of all time.

"In a pre-internet era that sort of traffic might have been enough to achieve a No.1.... at this rate they could be bagging Grammys before having even played Whelans."
- Eamon Miller, Metro.

The band cut their teeth as a live act in March '06 & have already notched a series of headline concerts in Dublin's Temple Bar Music Centre, and the POD's Crawdaddy.

In recent months Star Belgrade have been selected for three national showcase gigs including 2006 Hard Working Class Heroes Festival, Murphy's Live 2007 and more recently the 2007 IMRO Showcase Tour.

The band are currently working on their debut EP with legendary engineer, Paul Thomas (U2/Phil Lynott) and producer, Gizzy D of Analogue Mindfield - it's due to be released later this summer.
