Three piece band from the Midlands of the U.K. playing original material that's inspired by the likes of other powerful bands like the Jam & Supergrass. Our energetic sounds have already gained us a good following and many good reviews. Booking us is one thing you won't regret.

Biography

We are a three piece band from the North of England, creating guitar music since 2010. Over the past 2 years we have aquired a good and promising set of material. Our songs range from powerful, energetic chord structures and riffs, to more mellow and emotional tracks.

We are 3 lads who grew up together through school and have made music our priority since then. The 3 of us love what we do and put our heart and soul into all of our performances and songs. We started off rehearsing where we could, money was tight as we were only 15 and 16 years of age. Since then we have moved to professional rehearsal studios and have gained alot of experience. Our music and sound as also changed over the past two years which has eventually adapted and seperated us a part from any other band.

There is a good chemistry in the bad as we all enjoy a wide range of music, we have many influences like: the Jam, the Who, Paul Weller, the Stone Roses, Oasis, Supergrass, the Small Faces, the Lambrettas, the Merton Parka's, the Rifles, the Kinks and many more...
The style of music we play is best described as alternative rock with a punky edge.

Lyrics

Get Up and Go

Written By: Paul Chaplin

Just a memory, in my past
In the back of my mind, the time went fast
It takes two glances, too see your face
How much you've changed, at such a fast pace

I just want, a simple hello
I just want, a simple hello
But if you, don't wanna know
I'm just gonna, get up and go

This life we live in, is a kick in the ribs
It take more from us, than it gives
I don't wanna know, what you've become
But have you forgot, all that we've done

I just want, a simple hello
I just want, a simple hello
But if you, don't wanna know
I'm just gonna, get up and go

Get up and go
Get up and go
Get up and go
Get up and go!

Get up and go
(Get up, Get up, Get up)
Get up and go
(Get up, Get up, Get up)
Get up and go
(Get up, Get up, Get up)
Get up and go!
