    the best live dnb/dubstep band ive ver heard is fukd from copenhagen.

    http://profile.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=user.viewprofile&friendID=56024986

    watch the videos, they were doing pendulum version of voodoo people live BEFORE pendulum!!!!

    I dunno if someones already written them down but The Zinga Warrior's are quite a good DnB band. Mates booked them probably about 1 - 2 years ago now, back then they were alright so if they still goin they should be loooooads better now.
