- Rook and the Ravens
- Indie/ Pop/ Rock
Manchester-based quintet, featuring Joe Fay - Guitars/ Vocals, James Fay - Guitars/ Vocals, Tom Cartledge - Keys/ Vocals, Dave Brodie - Bass/ Harmonicas and John B. Major - Drums/ Backing Vocals.
"Hailing from the hills on the east side of town, the band are loosely part of the recent wave of tuneful Americana-flavoured indie that's been lapping around the fringes of Manchester for a while now and with their debut album almost ready to go, things are indeed looking bright. They sound like a ride in an open-top car on a sunny day, which is not a concept generally associated with Glossop."
