Mike Barnes 



Sonic Cartel is Phil Short (Vocals/Guitar), Steve Catt (Lead Guitar), Dan Hawkins (Bass Guitar) & Mike Barnes (Drums). 


The band is from South London, with occasional wanderings into Cambridgeshire when there's the opportunity of some recording at Mike (the drum don of Cambridge)'s studio. 


All Sonic Cartel songs are written by Steve & Phil (or Phil & Steve - we haven't had that argument yet), who've been writing together for many, many, many, many, years. But, you know, awesome rock tunes don't just happen overnight (except the ones we wrote in a night, of course).


The band's sound is firmly rooted in classic British rock, with a touch of grunge and a bit of Deep South swamp juice thown in for good measure - a pretty good mix, we hope you'll agree!
