Brilliant scuzzy, alternative, grunge, punk.
This five piece are reminiscent of Sonic Youth, Pixies, Slater Keaney and Interpol and how many bands do you know would really love you to say that about them! Tunes that get your head nodding, feet tapping and brain working. If you are a fan of the Pixies, the Sonics and even Pavement then you’ll just love Serpentine Pad.
Jo-Jo and Lianne are of course well known to the Manchester Music scene in their earlier incarnation as Jackie-O/Fight Club but now play goliath head-butting riff rock that soundtracks Kong and The Barbarians kicking the sh*t out of The Ramones and Sonic Youth. Get your neckbrace ready!
Sian’s vocals and songs just get better and better. Think QOTSA, Biffy Clyro and McCluskey fronted by Polly Harvey. Choppy riffs and black stilettos underpinned by great bass and drums.
Celebrity Love Crisis
With a ‘we will play anywhere’ attitude this York band band can be seen everywhere except Hello Magazine. Expect heavy as hell, metallic prog, juicy, low frequency riff rock but don’t expect Paris Hilton!
