Crippled Black Phoenix is a supergroup, formed by musicians who were all involved with other projects, notably Dominic Aitchison of Mogwai, although drummer Justin Greaves (Electric Wizard) is the driving force behind the band.

Effortless Cool is an album by Homespun, a collaborative project between Sam Brown and Dave Rotheray. "Sweetness," "Italy," and "Minute" are among the tracks.

Brown was made famous by her classic hit 'Stop' (which has been covered by Jamelia and features on the soundtrack to "Bridget Jones, The Edge Of Reason") and Rotheray has enjoyed incredible success as the songwriter and guitarist in The Beautiful South.
