The Alibi
The Alibi
Hailing from Dartford, The Alibi take inspiration from their bleak surroundings and write about what they describe as a black and white town under a sky of colours. A place that influences the industrial soundprint of their core sound, they write about what they see. Political observations, justice, the current social unrest - they create songs that matter about life as they see it and play them with passion and force....

... The Alibi are the exact dose of what the British music scene desperately needs right now.

This 3 piece rock band, came together in their local and in college, united by the mutual need to stand out... The band comprises of Harry Love (lead vocal and guitar), Elliot Frampton (Drums), Eddie Lovell (Lead Guitar).

Having learned how to play drums with pencils on the family sofa or pretending to be Angus Young they have refined their craft and now fill the room with attitude and full bodied rock songs that by far surpass the ability of their collective years - each barely just 19 years of age.

Having supported We Are Scientist and playing to a sold out crowd at KOKO and a familiar band face in Camden, there is no gig they can’t fill with their heavy drums and electric live performances.

With aspirations to play Wembley, Madison Square Gardens and another packed out KoKo - and generally follow in the hallowed footsteps of bands that have inspired them, such as The Beatles, Nirvana, Hendrix

The Marcus Lazarus Band
The Marcus Lazarus Band
Influenced by the likes of Mark Knopfler, Dave Gilmour, Buddy Guy, Eric Clapton and Gary Moore the echoes of mainstream pop and rock also filter through resulting in an eclectic mixture of styles and melodies.

The mantra of 'pleasure in playing' certainly holds true in the bands performance so expect plenty of improvisational moments and perhaps some crowd participation as well!
