Other Info

PLANET FOR SALE are a Brighton based musical universe whose artful fusion of rock and blues is a mix of compelling lyrical imagery, incendiary guitar solos and trippy psychedelia. They are the anguished sound of the feverish firesale that’s happening on planet Earth, this tiny rock hurtling through the vastness of space.

Formed by British-Iranian singer/songwriter Rooz Golpa with Jim Cannings and Jamie Snelling, PLANET FOR SALE met as music students in Brighton’s Northbrook College over a heated musical debate during which they discovered that they were the only ones able to connect the dots between 1960s Brit Rock, Led Zeppelin, Abba and Joy Division.

In 2017, Rooz took the band to Tehran where they were the first band to debut original music performed/sung in English since the 1979 Islamic Revolution. Rooz’s uncle, Akbar Golpa, is a celebrated Persian vocalist whose career of more than 50 years has earned him a legendary status in Iran and a Golden Rose for his worldwide contribution to music. PLANET FOR SALE enjoy a cult following in Iran.

Closer to home, PLANET FOR SALE released their debut album Earth in 2018 and continue to perform regularly in clubs across the South East.
