Nineties Brit-Pop group Shed Seven who, fronted by the unmistakable vocals of Rick Witter, brought us hits such as Going For Gold, Chasing Rainbows and Getting Better. Shed Seven formed in York in 1990, out of the ashes of Brockley Haven, they were one of the groups which contributed to the Britpop music scene of the 1990s, but they never received the degree of mainstream success achieved by the likes of Oasis and Blur. The band officially split up in 2003 but reformed in 2007 for a greatest hits tour, and have since continued to play shows around Britain periodically.

The Pigeon Detectives
The Leeds-based Pigeon Detectives play an exciting blend of rock'n'roll born out of a love for classic rock music and the indie rock of the 1990s. 'Perfect fodder for indie fans who like to jump up and down as if it's 1995, this band's crunching guitar is simple but effective' says Camden Evening News, reflecting quite accurately the Pigeon Detectives' ethos - to play exciting music to packed out venues.

The Wedding Present
In the late 1980s The Wedding Present were one of the most famous British indie bands. Their career path often involved unusual decisions, such as recording a set of Ukranian folk songs for their first major-label offering and releasing a single on the first Monday of every month for a year. Band members came and went, but the idea of The Wedding Present as a group has remained. Nowadays fans of 'the Weddoes' can still hear their favourite songs (as well as new material) being played live by original songwriter David Gedge and his band.
