Festival Chamber Orchestra Canterbury tour dates
Hampshire indie-rock four-piece who famously took the Radiohead route in 2009 by releasing their debut album, 'Thank You', as a free download from their website. To date the album has had over 20,000 downloads. Their hook-laden rock anthems have previously seen them become Rock Sound's "Band Of The Week", and Mike Sparks and the boys surely look set to do it elsewhere.
