After 14 months we’ve decided to bring our first series to an end. Here we have a round-up of the best advice to young bands, thoughts on the Cambridge music scene, funniest lightning round answers and, of course, out-takes and bloopers.
We’d like to thank all the bands featured in our first season, without you there wouldn’t be a show. In no particular order, big love to: The Projectionist, Naomi & Tom, Buzzard King, Goldstar, The 3rd Eyebrow, The Varsity, DAFM,The Infernal Sea, Band Of Brothers, Jake Martin, Fred’s House, Motor Tapes, Flux32, and 28 Boulevard. Special mention goes to Blunderbuster who were our first ever SPPresents feature before they took the now familiar form of an audio / visual experience.
We’d also like to thank the writers who brought us the accompanying reviews: Jack Gunner, Jack Hill, Wesley Freeman-Smith
And the following collection of miscellaneous people that made these episodes special in a variety of ways, or demonstrated a large amount of support or usefulness: Aaahh!!! Real Records, Matt Widgery, Tug Phipps, Bradley Stearn, & Paul Green.
We should also take a moment to remember our intern, Giles, who was tragically killed when a sentient robot promoter fell out of the sky and landed on him.
Now, down to the important stuff. Below is the first score board for our now (in)famous lightning round.
So there we have it, congrats to The Varsity! Maybe next season we’ll come up with an easier to track method of scoring… (and maybe Liam won’t just straight up say “You Win” to a band…)
See you in series 2!
Liam & Si
