Shed Seven Shed Seven - Still Going For Gold in Shedcember 2019, Massive Homecoming Yorkshire Gig at Leeds Arena. Without doubt the biggest band from York has to be Shed Seven, and as a loyal Yorkie I’ve seen them play in some of the smallest pubs and clubs in the city since they first got together, watched them lose the Battle of the Bands competitions, twice and also saw them play plenty of amazing shows at Fibbers and The Barbican in York. It smarts a bit that they choose Leeds as their big homecoming gig on the Shedcember tour this year.

Madness And so to Madness... I say and so to Madness as I managed to miss The Fratellis and so I will, dear reader, have to leave it at that.

Manic Street Preachers The first time I saw the Manic Street Preachers was at the Adelphi in Hull back in 1991, at the time they raced through their soon to be released debut double album in 70mph post punk fashion, the sound was abysmal but that didn’t matter as they were the band of their time, fashionably brash and didn’t give a damn about what they said, or who they said it to.

The Courteeners The Courteeners. Manchester's sons are often dismissed in the music press, presumably because of some kind of London centric snobbishness aimed at the North of England. The Courteeners and their army of fans care not for such an attitude. One of the reasons the band are so popular is that they know their audience. Whether it be recruiting Milburn to join them in Yorkshire or coming out to the fevered howl of Oasis' 'Morning Glory', they know how to raise excitement to fever pitch.
