A Swinton, Manchester born quartet united through the love for making and listening to bangin’ tunes! With a cock-sure attitude and seemingly raw sound, a combination of quality tunes, built up over the last year of gigging around town and cheeky image to match, Fake Kings pull off a top-class gig.
Months old, and Gasperilla have already been voted Manchester’s greatest unsigned talent, winning an opening slot at Manchester International festival, playing the 5000 capacity outdoor gig at the Lowry and supporting Gossip, which marked their tenth gig. The band had already catapulted onto the radio-waves of Xfm thanks to a thirsty, ever-expanding fanbase. Gasperilla play it hard, fast and loud with all the talent and spite of musicians who have done some time on the scene but with the fierce energy of the fresh new band that they are. It’s adrenalin-pumping, soulful rock & roll: mighty vocals, stunningly graceful duelling guitars, intricate and potent bass licks and an inconceivably thunderous drummer. Witness their compelling energy live as they continue to rock the hottest venues in town. They are on the brink of something huge-and you were here first.
The reason our name is 25-11's is simply because our first practice was on that date. Our band consists of Lead guitarist and lead vocals (Danny Holt), Lead/rythm guitarist (Nick Lee), Bass Guitarist (Ash Grimes) and the Drummer (James Farmer). We got together in november 2007, But with a different drummer, it didnt quite work out, so there was a little set back for the band between december 2007 - february 2008, Then we met James Who is an excellent drummer and mixed in well with the band.
THE LAST LOFT
We met in a bar opposite the BBC building on Oxford Road.
We wrote some songs that we like.
We practiced them an awful lot because we drops sticks and plecs every now and again.
We played them live because people like Dan's boufont.
We recorded them at a studio as we believe that is the most reliable way to make a permanent documentation of your audio work.
You listened because...errrr.
We chillaxed as we're all kacked out now.
