Wrexham’s The Roseville Band have entered a national competition to find the greatest unsigned band in the UK. The competition is called ‘Last Band Standing‘ and has been founded by fashion icon Nicholas Deakins.

Using an online voting system where bands can upload their mp3 and profile details, the general public will then vote over a three month period to determine the ten most popular entries. A panel of judges (including representatives from NME, Fiction Records and XFM) will select three finalists from the top ten tracks.

The final three bands/artists will battle it out at a live gig at The Cockpit in Leeds on November 9th 2008, supporting The Paddingtons. The panel of judges will then declare the winner of the Last Band Standing competition following the gig.

Votes can be registered ONCE each day. To vote for The Roseville Band, click on this direct link:

In other news: The Roseville Band’s performance at Central Station in Wrexham this Thursday has been postponed due to injury.

  1. supporting the paddingtons! whoopydedoo

  2. Cheers Paul! Glad to have your support 😉

  3. Is it even worth the effort?

  4. Do you mean is worth bothering to sign up to a national unsigned competition,
    Or do you mean is it worthwhile for the Roseville Band to sign up for it?

    I can see benefits for both either way…

  5. ‘The prize list supplied by our partners is growing constantly and currently includes; a recording studio session in a major studio with producer George Shilling (Primal Scream, The Soup Dragons etc) to produce the single which will be released nationally, a cool new wardrobe for the band supplied by main sponsor Nicholas Deakins, a pro photo shoot with renowned music photographer Dean Sherwood, support billing at various festivals and events throughout 2009 as well as huge media exposure and management opportunities.’

    Sounds well worth it to be fair!

  6. obviously if that info was in the story to begin with but it was’nt, it sounded like a support slot with the paddingtons was the only prize

  7. I feel like ive done my deed for the day
