Once so common that Shakespeare described London as "a city of Red Kites and Crows", the Red Kite (Milvus milvus) was persecuted and hunted to extinction throughout the 18th and 19th centuries. Its reintroduction, initiated in 1989 by the RSPB and the Joint Nature Conservation Committee, is now the most successful reintroduction of any bird species in Europe. In 2006 The Independent newspaper reported the first sighting of a Red Kite over London for 150 years.

RED KITE Once so common that Shakespeare described London as "a city of Red Kites and Crows", the Red Kite (Milvus milvus) was persecuted and hunted to extinction throughout the 18th and 19th centuries.

THE WILD EYES are rock n' roll weirdos. Riding the point where garage rock meets psychedelic pop, they play songs of hedonism and heartache with a belief and intensity born of the small towns of their youth. Now residing in Liverpool, 2012 saw the trio release their debut 7” ‘I Look Good On You’, a blazing nugget of rock ‘n roll delirium. The band have earnt a fierce live reputation in the dark corners of the city and beyond as they have bared their awe at the still potent power of rock and roll. The Wild Eyes are drenched in reverb, mystery and sweat. Their debut album is due to arrive on the Liverpool independent label Baltic Sub in the autumn of 2013.

The Wild Eyes are: Huw Roberts (vocals, guitar), Sam Gill (drums) and Neal Johnson (bass).

"Straddling the divide between pop and psychedelia with consummate ease....somehow retro and futuristic at the same time, the only conclusion to draw is that they sound a lot like the sound of well, now." Bido Lito! Magazine

”The word 'psychedelic' gets used quite a lot by pretentious hipsters trying to label bands, but these certainly deserved that epitaph, with an exciting and wild performance that, well, lived up to their name.” Liverpool Echo

"slap you hard in the face and take you roughly by the collar- dragging you around the back streets of a town seething with sleazy riffs" Sevenstreets.com

"The trebly aggression of The Who, the melodic nouse of The Beatles, The Stones’ swagger and a large portion of strangeness entirely of their own making" Nerve Magazine
