Six Degrees of Separation are a grunge influenced rock band from Britain's most easterly town, Lowestoft, home of The Darkness and described as "God's arsehole" by Kiss frontman Gene Simmons. A town with areas of high deprivation it houses a multitude of bands, young and old. The band formed a year ago and have a set of 25 songs. All four members guitar or vocals for drum sticks and/or bass. This gives diversity in the style of music and a great live visual performance. Their music, heavily influenced by 90s Seattle grunge, follows the "verse-chorus-verse" theme with passion and rawness and has been described as "infectious yet simplistic". The songs vary widely, the listener should be able to pick out the influences of Alice in Chains, Pearl Jam, Nirvana, Incubus, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Pink Floyd. No prizes for guessing the main vocal influence!

Recorded May 2006 "20th April"
The first full band gig was upstairs at The Seabreeze Club, Lowestoft. The venue was almost double capacity, some had to be turned away for fear of the floor collapsing. Jamos, cracked a rib just threes songs into the set by being over enthusiastic with a tambourine during the punk style song "For All My Help". In addition Gene Simmons' Rock School 2 cameras appeared to film the entire evening, a clip from the set was aired on Channel 4 on 29th January 2006.
The band have been gigging heavily throughout the first part of the year, with lots more gigs booked up and festivals to be confirmed.
