MJ Hibbett http://www.myspace.com/mjhibbett
In their ten years together MJ Hibbett has performed live on Radio One, had a Record Of The Year in Rolling Stone, an Album Of The Day on 6Music, released one of the first ever viral videos, toured up and down the UK and even featured in an Edinburgh Fringe Festival show, all while maintaining complete independence from record labels. They’re old school indie, belligerently optimistic, and will have a pint.
