(this review was prior name change)

The real stars of the show were main support act Lady Muck, an excellent band with a terrible name. Like many of their peers, they clearly grew up on the Gallaghers, although their songs are slightly more tuneful and their choruses slightly more subtle. Think of The View minus the chaos and Scottish accents. The influence of contemporary American rock, particularly Pearl Jam and Weezer, is also audible at various points. In fact, able frontman Ben Turner breaks into a cover of Weezer's Say It Ain't So when lead guitarist Tom Parker stalls to correct an equipment failure. The band are good, but Turner's vocals are particularly - and deceptively - remarkable. As well as several epic moments, he also provides flashes of genuine tenderness too, effortlessly changing gear in the style of Elliott Smith or Jeff Buckley. The fact that Lady Muck have only existed for six months compounds the impressiveness of their performance.

In defence of The Checks, they won't be the only band upstaged by Lady Muck in the near future.



You Dont Love Me- bbc introducing air play.



Oswestry / Llangollen's Mitsu’s Run aren't sure musically what genre their music fits into- which can’t be a bad thing.

Singer, Ben Turner, (reviewed in the frame of Elliot Smith & Jeff Buckley) formed the 5 piece with guys that he fought in the play ground before becoming mates at puberty through their music tastes. Mitsu's Run, self-confessed country bumpkins, the band performs an attentive fusion of Jazz and Blues which is as catchy as it is epic. Quirky as the Cold War Kids, indie as Gomez, with youth on their side and influences from ya Dad's generation an interesting sound is evolving.

Formed as recently as early 2008, Mitsu's Run spent their first 6 months holed up in the Ex-servicemen's club (Oswestry) before breaking in to Ant's work in the middle of the night to record a demo that's got them a BBC Session and gigs across the country, from Manchester to Leeds, London and Brighton including a support act for Shaun Ryder and recently a showcase at The Red Stripe Awards 2009.

Less than 12 months in, this is demo No.2 from Mitsu’s Run, 3 more tracks from their continously creative set.
