""It's probably worth jumping on the bandwagon now; come the end of the year it'll be moving an awful lot faster""

It's not often that you experience a genuine sense of excitement at the prospect of hearing a new record; it's even less common to have that initial childlike feeling justified by the end of the first listen. Even taken on face value, this EP is ace, but the fact that I recall Mybe from their early days (we're talking mid-90's), playing venues like the Green Room in Chesterfield, adds a nostalgic dimension to proceedings. Discovering that it's available for free via their website is the icing on the cake, and the cherry, at least in name-dropping terms, is provided in the form of (relatively) new guitarist Andy, who I'm pretty sure was in the year below me at school. TCBTS is packed with upbeat, hook-laden nuggets of exhilaration that knock the likes of LostProphets into a cocked hat. 'State of Emergency' must be the catchiest song to ever emerge from Dronfield, and ends with a storming bit of half-time that is tantalisingly brief. 'WithYou I'm Nothing' is a melting pot of everything good about the recent infatuation with 80's music, with its echo-laced vocals and another memorable chorus, and 'The Long Goodbye' must surely be a live favourite thanks to a shout-along backing vocal that evokes the memory of sweat and warm, flat lager. 'Falling Down' slows the pace, but the adrenaline levels are maintained thanks to a spine-tingling, strings-enhanced chorus that soars like the climax of an historical cinematic epic. If my understanding is correct, TCBTS has been released as an appetizer for Mybe's forthcoming new album. It's probably worth jumping on the bandwagon now; come the end of the year it'll be moving an awful lot faster. - Sandman Magazine

""sickeningly catchy""

Yet another promising new act from Sheffield. This free-for-download EP from a South Yorkshire quartet currently negotiating their debut abum release suggests that The Arctic Monkeys and Milburn may soon have yet more competition. Opening with State Of Emergency, a ska-tinged chunk of 100mph indie rock, this quickly settles into a routine of simple yet very clever pop songs. The sickeningly catchy The Long Goodbye provides more evidence of a fast-developing songwriting talent while the obligatory ballad Falling Down inserts a timely change of pace and demonstrates that Mybe are anything but a one-trick pop pony. Early days it is, but on this showing negotiations for that album cannot conclude quickly enough. - Playing Out Loud


Small Man Syndrome - 2004 (On The Road Records)



Formed in 1995, Mybe have now been together nearly half of their lives. After meeting at school the three founding members, Jim Pinder (Lead Vocals, Guitar), Jez Dennis (Drums) and Ross Bannister (Bass, Backing Vocals) quickly became friends and by early 1996, Mybe had begun touring and recording.
Over the next few years the band released 4 self funded E.P's and toured more and more around the UK and Europe. The hard work eventually paid off and they signed a deal with a small independent label 'On The Road Records'. Once again, the band hit the studio and recorded their first full-length album ‘Small Man Syndrome’ which was well received by fans and press (Kerrang - KKKK - Rocksound 8/10). The band continued to tour relentlessly with countless bands such as Stiff Little Fingers, The Damned, Bad Manners etc, playing over 150 gigs per year until they left their label in 2005.

2007 saw the addition of guitarist Andy Dickenson to complete the line up which has added new dynamics to Mybe’s already highly entertaining live show. With dozens of new songs in tow, 2007 also saw the band attract the attention of a local businessman who quickly offered the band some much needed financial support. By 2008 Mybe were in the studio with producer Carl Bown working on what has become their new album ‘Satellite’.
2009 has been a great year for Mybe ,with the band recently getting a manager and agent on board .
