Studio2 Parr Street, Liverpool.
Studio2 is proud to present an vibrant Independent Venue Week Wednesday night of featuring COLOUR & Skinner’s Lane. This night is sure to dazzle and surprise even the most stubborn of audience members.
COLOUR A band from the British northwest coast, they were formed when Tidd (vox, guitar, piano) moved to Liverpool from his native Rutland with material and the sole aim of forming a band. He and Connor Dickson (drums, vox) met on the covers circuit and began as a piano-drum 2 piece. They then merged with ex-Red Light Motion front men Scott Harvey (guitar, vox) and Liam Downey (bass, vox) and changed to an all-singing guitar band. Together the band chose a name that would describe the music itself, first 'The Changes', then 'Block Colours' and finally COLOUR. "Every now and then a new band genuinely excites" - The Mirror "By far the strongest and most original track from a wonderful band" - Tom Robinson The band are co-produced by Dan Swift (Kasabian, Snow Patrol) and record all material at their own COLOUR Studios on the northwest coast. Says Dan of the band: “Average bands sound like their heroes, good bands sound like other good bands and great bands sound like themselves. COLOUR are a great band” "COLOUR is a profoundly independent pop explosion" - CLASH Magazine
Skinner’s Lane An unorthodox collection of three uncanny individuals, Skinner’s Lane is a group highly motivated to excite listeners with their international twist on British music culture coupled with an ambitious and relentless determination to also put smiles on faces and lift crowds with their eccentric personalities and captivating stage presence. “With the riff's combined with the frontman Zak's energy, the place filled fast. Through the Canadian accent and the American humour, Zak and his band definitely set the bar high for acts to follow" - Purple Revolver. The Liverpool garage rock band have been causing a raucous across Merseyside with their animated style fused together with elements of psychedelia, indie and even prog-rock. Hailing from Sandefjord, Liverpool and San Francisco, Skinner’s Lane is an excitable band built on strong emphasis of punky guitar riffs and beats reminiscent of old school punk and noughties garage rock dipped in Californian psychedelia and surf. This has seen them garner excitement over the past two years coupled with their animated, possessed-like stage performances. "The opening rumble of guitar and drums is reminiscent of indie gods Arctic Monkeys and Franz Ferdinand, whilst vocalist Zak’s singing gives a nod to classic punk pop tracks of the late ‘90s and early ‘00s." - Liverpool Noise.
