SaltPeter were formed in the mid-1990’s by Salena Godden and Peter Coyte. SaltPeter produced several singles, EP’s and SaltPeter Radio Shows on Resonance FM. Their music has been remixed by the likes of  Dino Lenny and Different Gear – the Different Gear remix of SaltPeter’s 5AM reached number one in the dance charts in the summer of 2003. SaltPeter released two albums: 1999’s EGG YOLK PLANET FRIED and 2007’s HUNGER'S THE BEST SAUCE (pictured below)
Hungers The Best Sauce
Featured in The Critical List in The Independent 
As one of the most outstanding albums of 2007
 Its available on i-tunes:  
The Book Club Boutique is Soho's hippest literary salon – soliciting their own unique brand of Books, Booze and Boogie-Woogie. It is produced and hosted by Salena Godden and co-producer Max Doray. As you may know BCB began life as a hedonistic weekly gathering of writers and musicians at Dicks Bar in Soho in 2009. 
Since then the BCB has flourished hosting very popular events in Soho at Blacks and The House of St Barnabus...Until the BCB spread its wings and special brand of books, booze and beats, as far and wide as Irelands Electric Picnic, and festivals such as Port Eliot, The Big Chill, Summer Sundae, Hay-On-Wye, Standon Calling, and also one helluva epic tour of the East Coast of Australia in 2011.  
This is the BCB’s new adventure in publishing
Look out for a flurry of new ‘Book Club Boutique Productions’
And welcome to our new chapter!
Everyday a little closer, a little closer, everyday!
