THESE fresh fanced local guys came together because of their love for indie rock music.

Ian, Dan, Steve and Matt each bring their own bit of talent to the band.

It's obvious in the melancolic high guitar pitchs and low speach-like vocals on Never Coming Home. And through the dark bass that vibrates heavily on Law Abiders.

This band is a bit like marmite. You either love or hate them!

Their self-titled first album peaked at 16 in the charts and 'Let's Go Surfing' was their most successful single.

This is the video to their track 'Money' which is off their second album 'Portamento' released back in September.

The heavy metal pioneers made the announcement yesterday (Friday) at the Whisky A Go Go bar, where they played their first Los Angeles gig 41 years ago to the day.

It was timed for 11am on 11/11/11.

CANADIAN musician Clayton Denwood fired out some short answers when he took part in the inquisition.

He is, some would say, an americana artist however he doesn't like that comparison. Think folk-rock with a bluesy edge.

1.Name of Artist/Band? (Include all band members names and instruments played.)

Clayton Denwood vocals, guitar, harmonica, piano, mandolin, to name but a few.

Current line-up is Jason Page (Guitar), Leo Steeds (Keys) , Adam Phillips (Bass) & Nathan Anderson-Barr (Drums).

2.What genre of music do you consider your work to be? Who are your major influences?

'Most would say Americana but I prefer Folk-Rock-Country-Blues-Funk-Jazz. Influences include Mr. Dylan, Tom Petty, The Band, The Beatles, Waterboys, William Blake and Charles Bukowski.'

coldplay ricoh 2.jpgCOLDPLAY have announced a run off stadium dates for summer 2012 - which will kick off in Coventry.

Chris Martin brings his band to the Ricoh Arena on Tuesday May 29.

It is a huge coup for the city as Coldplay's stunning headline slot at Glastonbury Festival this year cemented their status as one of the biggest bands in the world today.

ROCKER and charity mogul Sir Bob Geldof will be performing at the Queen's Hall in Nuneaton on November 16.

Geldof will be sampling tracks from his latest album How to Compose Popular Songs That Will Sell.

Geldof was a success in the late 70s with The Boomtown Rats. However he is probably better know for his humanitarian projects, such as Live Aid and Live 8.

alkaline trio.jpgPUNK rockers Alkaline Trio have been forced to postpone their UK tour - including a show at the Kasbah this weekend.

However rising dubstep star Rusko will play at the Coventry nightclub next week.

Support act fiN


WHEN I arrived at the Wolves Civic for my evening of alt-rock funk I was pleasantly surprised by the large crowd gathering outside the venue.

London's up-and-coming alt-rock band fiN started the night with furious passion. An interesting mix of grunge and rock helped whip the ever growing audience into a mild frenzy so it's no wonder they're supporting Incubus on most of their European dates.

Then it was time for the headliners, a band that hasn't stepped on UK soil for a longtime. Incubus are a funk metal band who have been around for two decades and this was their first gig on their UK tour.

2tone wall of fame 1.jpgTHE FIRST crop of city music legends have been honoured on Coventry's new wall of fame.

The first stars to be inducted on the wall turned out to see their plaques unveiled on Saturday and covered the full spectrum of Coventry's proud music history.

Among the most prominent names to make the cut were Specials star Lynval Goulding (pictured above with bandmate Neville Staple) and Selecter guitarist and songwriter Neol Davies.

Lynval said of his plaque: "It's a great and wonderful achievement to be honoured in this way."
