Testimonials

Dick St.Clair
"We managed to arrive 5 minutes before Fran and the lads kicked off. It was good to note that the band area was a nice size and had high ceilings which meant the Band could display their new Backdrop in all its glory. The set up looked good: well laid out and was completed with a rope-light boundary, which gave it a kind of 'force field' appearance. The band kicked off with Rebel Yell. The sound was good and the band room started to fill up, as the band powered through the set covering The Stereophonics, Foo Fighters, Undertones & Oasis plus many more great songs that I don't remember now, as I had a long weekend of gigging myself. The room started to get fuller with some dancing going on: all in all a great first set. If you haven't seen this band before and you like it 'rocky' with a 'punk' feel, get yourself down and see Fran and the lads. They are a great band and I can promise you will have a fun-filled night."

John Duff
Yes, the headline which was made by the landlady of Mr Bumble after their 3rd encore doesn't lie. I've seen this band a few times now and they get better every time. I took 6 friends with me who hadn't seen them so I could get a different view on what the band was like. My friends were a mixture from early 20s to early 50s and they loved them right from their versions of the Stereophonics' "Dakota" and the Foo Fighters' "Times Like These" to AC/DC's "Back in Black" and "A Whole Lot of Rosie" through to my faves The Ruts' "Babylon's Burning", The Cult's "She Sells Sanctuary" and The Dead Kennedys. The venue was absolutely buzzing right from the first song and you gotta catch their punk version of the Eurythmics' "Sweet Dreams" - pure quality, yes the landlady was spot on.
Please check their gig list for 2011 because I'm sure pretty soon you will soon be paying at the door to see them."

Graeme Nash
"This is one of the circuit's top bands. Here you have a firmly established act, and in my opinion, one of the most honest bands out there. Cover bands, by definition, have various styles of musical shoes to fill as most will (be obliged to) offer sets of generic tracks from heavy rock to cheesy pop. This band however have stuck it to ambiguity and proudly come out of the music closet with heads held high and strutting their spunky punky stuff. They make no bones about who and what they are and have carried into 2010 some core-punk DNA from the late 70's making them stand *out *from the crowd like a cheeky kid at the back of the class who despite being the noisiest little tyke still provides exceptional entertainment and great times.

"Proud to be punk" is the feeling you get at one of their gigs, however this band are no fools and have masterfully avoided being pigeonholed or excluded from general appeal. The pleasing thing is that regardless of the era a particular track originates they are able to take it and, like a satirical political graffiti artist, leave their mark for all to see.

One of my favourites when I saw the band at Mr Bumble, Camberley was Blondie's "Hanging On The Telephone". Lead singer Fran gave this song superb authenticity with the band providing the perfect blend of live energy and musical accuracy and for that moment the venue and I along with it was transported back to 1978 where you really could have been watching the real Blondie performing to a young student anti-anything crowd. An immediate follow up with The Ruts 1980 track "Staring At The Rude Boys" was another which caused a great deal of foot stomping and playful pushing about.

The same could be said for all their classic *punk* era tracks: The Clash's "Should I Stay Or Should I Go" brought frenzy to the crowds with enthusiastic bouncing and a good old fashioned mosh. Equally entertaining were their more modern numbers in particular the Stereophonics' "Dakota" which began to a huge appreciative applause as did "Sex On Fire" - a track they were asked to play twice by ravenous-for-more customers. There was also a fitting tribute to 70's Camberley based punk rock band The Members with a corking cover of The Sound Of The Suburbs. It was noted that after the gig a satisfied customer proudly disclosed to SOTS her family relationship to one of The Members' original line up and complimented the band on a great performance.

Musically this band have much to be proud of. They are a solid, hard working band and together produce a wonderfully tight and powerful wall of sound. Fran especially, it seems, has a passion for this era and style of music and it comes across in her consistently engaging performances. Her voice well suits the material they cover and you can't help but love the ranty, rallying, punky sneer that's so befittingly ever present in her vocals. There were notable performances from drummer Ian who skilfully nailed the peculiar timings on Foo Fighters track "Times Like These" and overall kept this fast paced band in great time from start to finish. Both guitarists prov
