DESPERATE JOURNALIST consist of two girls and two boys who have bonded in the abandoned wilds of North London.

Jo Bevan (vocals), Simon Drowner (bass), Rob Hardy (guitar) and Caz Hellbent (drums) - for 'tis they have been hauled together by a fearsome instinct for what makes alternative music actually really properly authentically alternative.

After releasing an EP and two singles themselves, now comes the heroically independent debut album, "Desperate Journalist" by DESPERATE JOURNALIST, which was recorded almost entirely live in Soho's Dean Street Studios, jointly produced alongside Keith TOTP and mixed by the band itself.

If that wasn't organic enough DESPERATE JOURNALIST designed their own artwork, get heavily involved in their videos and generally hark back to a time when an authentic DIY spirit pervaded, like a perfect indierock storm brewing on the horizon.

Unsurprisingly DESPERATE JOURNALIST have already gone down searingly well with UK media people like the real life ex-desperate journo Steve Lamacq on BBC 6 Music.

Other laptop-tapping enthusiasts of the DESPERATE JOURNALIST sound lurk at Artrocker ("Powerful, melodic and full of emotion."), Time Out ("Shimmering post-punk."), DIY Magazine and The Quietus ("Thoroughly ace.").
