"NME- Slydigs 'Electric Love' One of 5 Tracks you must listen to this week'"

13th August 2010 five tracks you need to hear this week. 5. Slydigs – ‘Electric Love’ Having supported the like of Pete Doherty, New York Dolls, The Fall, Idlewild, Shack and Alabama 3 – this Manchester four piece is well polished but still has that gritty indie rock edge. Listen to the track and find out more about the band on their NME Breakthrough. - NME


"SLYDIGS"

With one of the best band names in town, Sly Digs are, in their own words essentially and some might say, the essential 'Warrington Rock 'n' Roll band'.
In a town and time when being a rock and roll band means doffing your cap to Pete Doherty and Carl Barat and waving, over enthuastically, at Jagger, Richards and Townsend, Sly Digs tick all the right boxes.

At a moment in time when The View (Dundee), The Enemy (Coventry) and The Twang (Birmingham) are continuing to fly the flag for local boys making it nationwide. Sly Digs bring to the local scene a big slice of 'mid-noughties rock 'n' roll nihilism'.

Singing about the boys at the back instigating fights and days that yesterday no longer cares for. Writing songs with swagger, such as Ballad Of Sly Digs, these Warrington liberteenies are certainly getting quite a following.

"SLYDIGS@ Dry Bar"

Set in the classical Dry bar of famous Oldham street we were set to be entertained by an up and coming foursome. The impressive performances of the The antix and Manchester's very own Syd Bozko and Warrington's Wanders Sly digs set centre stage for the night to come. The crowd maximized when Sly Digs hit the stage with homemade harmonies and a few well represented classics.

"SLYDIGS- allgigs.co.uk"

Slydigs have a charismatic front man in lead singer Dean Fairhurst and importantly, they look like a band, something that many new bands neglect. The bass player has that slightly disinterested cool about him and the rhythm guitarist keeps the leather jacket on despite the beads of sweat which have formed on his forehead. "Oh What a Life" and the bizarrely named "Fiddle I'th Bag" (named after a Warrington pub) draw the set to a frenetic close - mike nuttall

Bio

In their Live performances, SLYDIGS have managed to ensnare not only the belle époque of the Northern Music Scene, but also couple it beautifully with the vim and vigour of a charismatic modern live act.
They are Releasing a single out on the 10th June! ELECTRIC LOVE (SEE BELOW).

****They have also just secured a mainstage gig at THE BIG H FESTIVAL in Edinburgh in June 11th/12th. This is for the HELP FOR HEROES CHARITY, (check out www.thebigh.co.uk ).

Their video of ELECTRIC LOVE (see below) recently 'topped' the sky channel 378 LAVA TV - as a result it is being played on NME TV RADAR CHANNEL over the last month.

NME recently said of the song - "ONE OF FIVE TRACKS YOU MUST HEAR THIS WEEK"!!!!

The Band have supported the NEW YORK DOLL, PETE DOHERTY, THE FALL, IDLEWILD, ALABAMA 3, DETROIT SOCIAL CLUB, SHACK, amongst others.

*******They are currently part of a musical collaboration with TRICKY from MASSIVE ATTACK (at Tricky's request) - the project also includes Paul Wellar (The JAM)******!!

Quite simply, The stage show and persona of the band is a head mix of The Who - with charisma and stage presence akin to Led Zep - with a liberal smattering of The Rolling Stones thrown in!!!!!
