A bunch of local musicians and promoters are scheduling a 2 day BLASTED festival taking place on Friday and Saturday 16th/17th of March 2007 at the No.1 Club on Bloomfield Road.
All the bands playing at BLASTED will be recorded through the desk and then mixed down to provide what should hopefully be a ‘good live recording’ which they are then free to use as they see fit. Any bands keen to play (particularly the younger bands) need to contact Andy Higgins on email@example.com or send through a demo to ROX TOWERS – PO BOX 1025 – BLACKPOOL – FY3 0FA asap, as the organisers want to finalise the line up in the next two weeks.
Bands confirmed so far include Erase Today, SICK56, The Pink Torpedoes, Swallow, Pink Hearse and The Locals, and hopefully there will be a chance to see Bolton based band ‘The Great St Louis’ who have just released their excellent debut album ‘Forever Now’.
We are also seeking local sponsors to step forward to provide some financial assistance for the event, which if a success might see BLASTED becoming a more regular event showcasing the best of local talent right across the age spectrum.
Electric Avenue has already kindly offered to supply and maintain the drum kit for the 2 day event. Any individuals, organisations or companies want to assist with BLASTED either now or in the future please contact Andy Higgins via the e-mail or postal address detailed above.
