Under The Influence ( Music before you ask ! )

A lot of our influences we’re current when The Thought Criminals started and are still releasing. So below we list the Artists and their Songs which have influenced The Thought Criminals Sound and minds in Room 101.  Some legendary, some less known some just as Insane as us. Some can be heard as an influence on our Recordings some not so obvious. As far as we know we’ve not cloned or ripped anyone’s song of to date. Apart from Nickelodeon’s Fred Figglehorn (Some Inbred Kid TV Show Stars Producers) ripping a song of ours word for word, and naming the track the same as ours. You really can’t make up the Music Industry…

Beyond Room 101

We have not released a Single/EP for a while.  So in the last two weeks us degenerates “The Thought Criminals” have been busy sending Promo copies of the Dirty Electro EP ( CDs, WAV Files & MP3s, Zips and Press kits ) to Radio Stations, Blogs & DJ’s. We have also been designing a new T-Shirt and trying to sort out the Promo Video which needs editing. Then we have been busy plugging the Dirty Electro EP across the Globe .  We’re already picking up Radio Play on Croydon Radio in Surrey,UK & KCR College Radio in San Diego US. Also we are being featured on some Major Pod-cast’s in the next few weeks. We did previously get one  No.14 College Radio Hit in Canada with “I Wanna Be A Celebrity“.
