The Spectrum presents… The Universal
On December 2nd at the Wrexham Lager Club, Spectrum Promotions continues with its great nights out with a performance from Liverpool band The Universal. As part of an evening dedicated to the sounds of Northern Soul, Britpop and R&B it looks like it will be a great primer to the party month.
Hailing from the home of The Beatles and Echo and the Bunnymen, The Universal refreshingly ditch that Merseybeat sound for a more mod orientated, classic Britpop sound. Having toured the length and breadth of the country with excursions to Italy and a planned Japanese tour they are certainly hard working. Playing scooter rallies have gained them a loyal following and their well-crafted songwriting contains elements of Paul Weller/Ocean Colour Scene in its genetic make-up.

For further listening though, further research in YouTube will throw up some limks to live performances which really highlight how professional the band are.
Support on the night comes from the fantastic Babylon Leaf and Shoot The Rabbit.
In true Spectrum Promotions style each of these bands have a different signature sound providing an evening of music which still remains eclectic. Tie this in with a DJ set from Zodiac’s Mike Lloyd and you are guaranteed a great night.
