the online live music gig guide for birmingham & the midlands


In the summer of 2005 four school friends from Bewdley, Worcestershire got together and formed a band. The four called themselves Amoeba and immediately started to write, incorporating and fusing the variety of musical genres that had influenced them individually - most particularly 60's rock 'n' roll, indie rock and reggae.

As Amoeba developed and its own identity emerged, ideas blossomed and songs flowed. With a handful of local gigs behind them they entered and won a Battle of the Bands competition at the popular and respected Stourbridge venue Rock Café 2000. They also featured on the local BBC radio station BBC Hereford and Worcester and played at the reknowned 'Hole in the Wall' summer concert in Cleobury Mortimer, Shropshire with artists 'Killer Queen' and 'The Hollies.'

With the close of 2007 delivering a sense of promise and affirmation, Amoeba boosted its live credentials in 2008 with a scattering of European dates, covering The Netherlands, Belgium and France.

With songs coming thick and fast, Amoeba took the now popular route of recording their material without record company involvement and selling product at shows. Their first 14 track album under the title 'Sweet Perfume' went on sale at live shows towards the end of 2007 and their new 6 track E.P. 'Where the Future Lies' will be released by Amoeba before the end of 2008.

The two albums are available to order at £10 each + p&p by emailing
