It was way back in October 2001, when Valentine Records unleashed their first full commercial release: a four track EP of gritty, emotional post-punk pop from caustic guitar quartet Extinguish Her

The NME praised the labels zeitgeisty cool while an unexpected Guardian G2 cover story helped cement the bands reputation as ones to watch for the coming year. Although the record sold well and helped position Valentine as one of the country's most promising independents the original incarnation of Extinguish Her parted company in the summer of 2002.

After a three year break, uncompromising singer-songwriter Ellie Akhgar returned with a fully revitalised band on the deliciously energetic comeback record "Hit My Head"

The new line-up was formed with the addition of James Dooley (bass) and Paul Flieshman (drums/guitar/production), both of whom add a depth and diversity to the Extinguish Her sound a far cry from the DIY fumblings of yore.
New drummer Alick Deacon completed the four-piece, allowing the band to turn their attentions to the live scene they relish so much.

Indeed, since (re)forming in 2005 the band have clocked up an impressive array of live appearances, including support slots for The Eighties Matchbox B-Line Disaster, Ladyfuzz and We Rock Like Girls Dont, as well as annual emphatic performances at Manchesters ITC festival in September/October.

The band are currently busy working on new material, and are looking forward to unleashing it on an eagerly anticipating crowd

[2} San Fransisco's experimental, psychedelic, alternative rap power trio emerged in the 90's as one of the bay areas most exciting live acts. This recording from late in their career, features great hooks and interwoven spills as they meld jazz and old school soul elements into their burgeoning hip hop concoction.
