NOW

In London, 1998, songwriter Justin Paton thought up a new group called NOW, so regular rehearsals were arranged with friends helping out on various instruments and NOW was born.
Along the way the NOW line-up has evolved to include the following:
Angela Last, Barry Woodcock, Justin Paton and Richard Thomas.
An EP named "Oisheedy Anna" is out on Discordance records and an album named "Frisbee Hotpot" was released in 2006 on Pickled Egg records.
NOW have contributed tracks to various compilation CD, CD-R & vinyl recordings since 2001 and have collaborated with ex CAN-singer Damo Suzuki (a CD of that has been released on TRI recordings & named "The London Evening News"), Charles Hayward, Salvatore, Rebecca Closure, Man From Uranus, Resonance Radio, the Kosmische club and The Klinker plus support slots with Faust, Circle, Tunng, Psapp, Rothko, Plaid, A Hawk And A Hacksaw,,, amongst others.

NOW could be described as catchy, contemporary, inventive, exotic, melodious and harmonious 21st century pop music.
