The Unsigned Stage

A place to check out new blood for the up and coming bands out there, we give them a place here

Acid Drop, by Kirsty Birkett-Stubbs

For some punk is akin to chewing your way through a wire scouring pad whilst someone rubs tin foil in your ears – far too bristly, noisy and downright unpleasant.

Lewis Clay, by Rudie Lou

On a very chilly Sunday evening (7th March to be exact), the Town Hall in Staines fronted an acoustic night. With 3 males on the line up, I thought there would be no harm in myself showing up.

Five Second Rule, by Rudie Lou

When I first heard Five Second Rule, they to me, had a 90s feel to them. Grungy vocals, Catchy riffs and seemed pretty easy listening.

Global Citizen & Yesterdays Trash Queens, by Andrew Chapman

Here at unsigned stage, seeing so much music as we do, it may appear that there are always good bands that are worth talking about for the right reasons, but unfortunately there are a few that miss the mark by a country mile and couldn’t keep in time if they were trying to beat out a fire.

Smokey Bastard, by Andrew Chapman

From the moment that they hit the stage at The Town Hall live night in Staines, despite being in the middle of the line up, Smokey Bastard seemed to win over a new audience. They may have been at a new venue, in a new area, but people took notice of what they had to say and what they were playing. They are travelling a well trodden route when it comes to their style, but where most bands would melt away into the crowd, Smokey Bastard gave a performance that will certainly mean they will be remembered by many, if not all, of those present.

Kyoshi, by Jacques TwoTone

I’ve been a fan of these guys for a fair few months now. A good little mash-up of ska and indie, with some fantastic hip-hop-esque delivery on the vocals. Being female-fronted, I’ve inevitably heard the comparisons to Lily Allen. To the people who make these comparisons, I merely have one thing to say – Do you actually listen to music? Whilst being a fan of Miss Allen, comparisons to her are completely unjustified. This band definately bring their own twist on the genre to the table, for which I am grateful. There are comparisons to be made to artists, of course, but why do such a thing when you can just listen and form your own opinion?
