I have chosen a song by 'THE SUBWAYS', its called 'BURST'. The Subways are an English alternative rock band. Their debut album, Young For Eternity, was released on 4 July 2005 in the UK and February 14, 2006 in the U.S. Their second album, All Or Nothing, was released on 30 June 2008. Although the band have not experienced a great deal of commercial success, they have gained a loyal cult following amongst attendees of the annual Reading and Leeds festivals, in which on each occasion they attracted a crowd big enough to fill the second stage tent beyond capacity, resulting in the band becoming main stage regulars.

I'm in the backroom
A sense of cruelty that you put on me
Another reason
Another chance to work your tease on me
Now, feel the fire at your fingertips
You burst a lot when you smile, when you smile
I can't control myself
I'll wait forever just to see you shine
I can't control myself
Out in the dead light
I'm not afraid and I don't want to stay inside
Fool for a reason
I made mistakes but at least I fucking tried
I'm in the backroom
A sense of cruelty that you put on me
Another reason
Another chance to work your tease on me
Now, feel the fire at your fingertips
You burst a lot when you smile, when you smile
I can't control myself
I'll wait forever just to see you shine


- 4 piece band

-name : The Beataphobic

-genre : English alternative rock

-The Beataphobic are a 4 peice band, they are all white british males, three of them are 18 and one is 17.

-The the audience they are trying to attract are males between the ages of 16 and 23, who are into the indie rock music scene, and are interested and follow un-known bands.

-The lead singer and the drummer of the band are brothers, and they met the other 2 members (bassist & guitarist) at 6th form. All of the members played music since a young age, but come from quite poor backgrounds. All of them come from Islington in london.

-The band started because they just reallywas passionate for music. As of yet the band have only played local gigs, and opened for other bands such as twin atlantic, run kid run, and many more. The band were really determind to get signed, so they frequently sent there demo to lots of major and independant record labels.

-upon releasing thier first album, the beataphobic have now signed up for a 2 month tour of Britain.

Polydor was originally an independent branch of the Deutsche Grammophon Gesellschaft. Its name was first used, as an export label, in 1924, the British and German branches of the Gramophone Company having severed their ties during World War I. Deutsche Grammophon claimed the rights to the His Master's Voice trademark for Germany, where HMV recordings were released under the Electrola trademark. In turn, DGG records exported out of Germany were released on the Polydor label. Deutsche Grammophon lost its rights to the His Master's Voice trademark to EMI and its Electrola label as part of Germany's surrender terms at the end of World War II.

Polydor became a popular music label in 1946 while the famously yellow Deutsche Grammophon seal became a classical music label. Polydor remained Deutsche Grammophon's export label, including classical music, in France and the Spanish-speaking world for the remainder of the long-playing era, as a result of language and cultural concerns.

In the early 1960s orchestra leader Bert Kaempfert signed unknowns Tony Sheridan and the Beat Brothers - who would later become famous as The Beatles - to Polydor.

Popular German entertainers such as James Last, Bert Kaempfert, Kurt Edelhagen, Caterina Valente and the Kessler Twins appeared on the Polydor label, as well as many French, Spanish and Latin-American figures.

Polydor UK
Though Polydor's American branch is defunct, in the United Kingdom, however, Polydor continues to sign chart-topping acts. In 1993, current Universal chairman Lucien Grainge and A&R supremo Colin Barlow were drafted in from Polygram music to turn the ailing company's fortunes around. The response was almost instant. Grainge and Barlow were successful in creating a new model for the UK music industry, selling millions of copies of debut signings by acts such as Lighthouse Family, and Polydor remains one of the strongest imprints in the country — with artists such as The Courteeners, La Roux, Klaxons, Sophie Ellis-Bextor, James Morrison, Take That, Girls Aloud, Kaiser Chiefs, N-Dubz and Jade Ewen. It also acts as the UK label for American-based acts under Interscope-Geffen-A&M like Eminem, Gwen Stefani, Mary J Blige, and Lady GaGa.
In Spring 2006, Polydor launched
Fascination Records, a music label dedicated to pop music. Both Girls Aloud and Sophie Ellis-Bextor transferred to the new label.
In 2008, Polydor picked up distribution of
The Rolling Stones' back catalogue as well as new releases.
