Semi Skinned and semi skilled...

If you hack your way into the chest cavity of 'The Cambridge Music Scene', you will find a R*E*P*E*A*T heart beating there. Where 'music promoter' sometimes is little more than a business title these days, R*EP*E*A*T promote local music in the original and deepest sense, from putting local bands on stages and releasing their music on CD to supporting and defining the scene through the R*E*P*E*A*T fanzine. Record titles such as 'Oh Grantchester So Much To Answer For', 'Straight Outta Cottenham', 'The Dustbin of Histon' and 'It Takes a Nation of Miltons' tell you all you need to know! R*E*P*E*A*T have just celebrated their 10th birthday with a massive bash at the Junction, proving that there is an alternative to the corporate alt.pop behemoth that tries to convince us that their new skini-jeaned, identi-kit, semi-skimmed (or as me granny says 'semi-skilled') pop band is the next Clash.

If you ever find yourself becoming part of the establishment, or turning into the thing you hate, read the 'History' blurb on the R*E*P*E*A*T website Learn to recognise the warning signs and act!
