Bio

Lets be honest, British Rock n Roll has been undeservingly shunted and neglected in modern times. With the country seemingly, and hideously, awash with the crème de la crap of an X-factor generation, whimsy ‘art-rock’ acts, uninspiring synth-disco nerds and enough blinged-up fakers to fill the whole of London town, it’s getting harder and harder to find a new British band you can truly believe in. Until now.

The Wutars are a 5-piece British Rock n Roll band from High Wycombe. They are a band that write stunningly crafted guitar songs from the gut, and pelt them out with an unstoppable cavalcade of life-affirming energy.

The band are fronted by the charms and charisma of Alex Gold, a highly competent singer/songwriter & guitarist with an enviable knack of churning out first-class rock n roll. Maz Marron (Guitar/Vox), Alex Kew (Acoustic guitar/Vox), Alex Valentine (The Bass/Backing Vox) and Samuel Terrific (The Drums) make up the Wutar brigade.

Since forming in 2005, the band have steadily risen to prominence on the London scene with regular residencies and gigs in the capital under their belt. Their explosive live shows, coupled with Gold, Marron and Kew’s three-pronged songwriter attack, have earned the Wu’s an impressive army of supporters.

These include Sex Pistol Glen Matlock, Rodney Bingenheimer from KROQ Radio and not forgetting the Joe Strummer Foundation for new music known as ‘Strummerville’. The band featured on the 2009 Strummerville Summer Sessions compilation with their track ‘Oh La La La’.

The Wutars have also enjoyed media exposure and radio-airplay, with Gavin Martin from the Daily Mirror rightfully including the band in his ‘Vital Young bands’ feature in October 2009, and with BBC radio’s Indie-Stalwart Gary Crowley naming the band’s song ‘Stay Up Stay Up’ as his track of the week on his London Calling radio show. Manchester legend John Robb, media legends David Hepworth and Mark Ellen, Deathdisco’s Danny Watson and Phill Jupitus have also publicly expressed their admiration for the band over recent months, while Steve Lamacq rushed to get the Wutars on his BBC radio show after seeing the band perform at a gig curated by their latest converts, The Word Magazine.

The Wutars have released their debut E.P on their very own label – ‘Very Decent Music’. E.P1 is the sound of The Wutars at their most exciting and melodic best and contains their, already, sought-after tracks ‘Stay Up Stay Up’ and ‘Oh La La La’.
