United Vibrations, a Cosmodelic Afro-Punk band from South-east London, continue to define the live sound in London with their Cosmodelic style.
Born from Inner Space, United Vibrations are on a journey of cosmic proportions. Music is their vessel. A sound forged from diversity - united in voice and rhythm. 12Tone. Cosmodelic Afro-Punk, Mulatto music, whatever you want to call it - it is HERE and it is NOW!
"Massively in demand as a live band for a long time now, and with their long awaited debut album, 'Galaxies Not Ghettos', causing reviewers to fall over each other to eagerly sing their praise, United Vibrations’ afro-beat-in-a-punk-style musicianship and poetry-come-philosophy lyrics seem to strike a cord with people from all walks of life, regardless of backgrounds.
It is the commentaries presented in the band’s lyrics, the incredible insight of the word-craft, which you’ll find rolling around your head for weeks to come." Panda-vs-iPod
The band consists of Wayne Francis (Sax), Ahmad Dayes (Trombone), Kareem Dayes (Bass) and Yussef Dayes (Drums).

Formed by percussionists Lascelles Lascelle (Brand New Heavies, Beth Orton etc), Patrick Dawes (Groove Armada, Herbaliser etc) and improv drummer Paul May (Duke Garwood, Barkingside, Fourth Page etc) to explore improvised and semi-improvised spiritual grooves.
