Vagner Love

“Another band who've come on in leaps and bounds – admittedly this is only the second time I've seen them – are Vagner Love, who do instantly likeable indie-pop with a flavour of early 90s American alt-rock, even down to singer Hasan Naeem's plaid shirt. You can't afford a weak link when there's only three of you and they haven't got one; Ben Taylor's exceptional drumming driving the whole thing while Hasan and bassist Moses Naeem weave melodies reminiscent of The Lemonheads in their prime. “This Is Not A War” is a particular favourite – another local band to definitely keep an eye on for 2009.”
Review by Cath Aubergine (

Crafty Freddie
A four piece female fronted band who play original, energetic, lyrical and infectious music. Crafty freddie first formed together in November 07 as a three piece acoustic band. Since then they have had a of couple changes in the line up. They have been performing as the four piece they are now since September 08 where they have proceeded to make there own music and play shows in great venues, they have also been aired on local and national radio stations such as Radio 1.
They all love what they do, and are so thankful to everyone who makes it out to see them play live!

Mercia Drift
“An absolute gem… Glorious synths and vocals full of melancholic optimism” – Sandman Magazine

“A convincing mix of stadium sized sounds, smart keyboards and jangling, strutting guitars” – Manchester Music

“A sonic cathedral of sound” – Vibrations Magazine

“Launching straight into a deafening attack of anthemic rock, with a mix of Killers synths, distorted vocals and Lee Knowles’ merciless shredding of his guitar it soon became clear why the venue was so uncharacteristically full so early on” – Sandman Magazine
