Best known as the frontman in The Bluetones, Mark Morriss released his debut solo album Memory Muscle on June 2, 2008. Getting his hands dirty with his own set of songs has been an inspiring experience for Morriss, who started trying them out acoustically at open mic nights in London way back in 2004. 'I'd just turn up with my guitar, play five or six songs, along with everyone else. I didn't want any special favours, and just enjoyed the experience of stripping things right back down' - Morriss.
"New Manchester boys Bluebird Kid Clark have a 60's sound that allies them with the likes of The Coral, The Zutons and The Stands. They have their own style though. The main thing they have in common with those other bands is the high quality of their songs". - John Coleman - WHAT'S ON IN LONDON
Northern folk-pop outfit Out Of The Gray, fronted by the soulfully sweet vocals of Heather Walkington. 'Out Of The Gray are widely regarded as one of the best Bolton bands around. Equal parts Fleetwood Mac and KT Tunstall, they really are spine-shiveringly good.' – Bolton Evening News
