Darren Michael - Band Member, Slashed Seat Affair

Formed late in 2005, Slashed Seat Affair are currently putting the finishing touches to their debut album, with producer Phil Tyreman, whose credits include Snow Patrol, Belle & Sebastian, Seal, The Darkness, Trevor Horn & Velvet Revolver.  Slashed Seat Affair’s debut video for their song “Dislocated” has been played nationwide in all branches of Topshop & on hairstylist Toni & Guy’s in-house music channel.

Slashed Seat Affair decided to follow the route of self-marketing, using podcasts as an integral part of their plan as it offered a potent, active method of message distribution whilst allowing costs to be kept minimal, vital in this age of, primarily, self-financing bands.

Not only have Slashed Seat Affair made their own pod/vodcasts but have featured heavily on podcasts from all over the world, including most of the Insomnia Radio “franchises” in the US – in many cases being the first British act to be played on the stations, Confessions of A DJ (Canada), Gone Fishing for Blue Skies (Japan) as well as in Britain, having a huge fan in podcasting aficionado CC Chapman. They performed at Podcon, the annual podcast convention, held in London for podcasters worldwide, November 2006.
