The Bees are from Ventnor on the Isle of Wight. Their sound mixes genres and sounds like few others; indie rock, psychedelic, 1960s garage rock, country, reggae and jazz, they are all in there somewhere.

The Bees have so far released three albums: 2002's Mercury Prize-nominated Sunshine Hit Me (which was acclaimed by critics for being recorded in frontman Paul Butler's own garden shed), its 2004 major label follow-up Free the Bees (recorded at Abbey Road), and the band's most recent work, 2007's Octopus.

In 2008 The Bees found time out from their busy touring schedule to put their ‘Sound Selection’ compilation album together for us.
