Your new favourite band…. Gallops!

by Ben Davis on 14 December, 2007 | 3 comments

At the moment there is somewhat of a buzz going on. A buzz about a new band. A new band in Wrexham. A Wrexham band that sounds like no other in these parts. There’s 3 parts to the band; Dave ‘Moz’ Morait, Mark ‘Hucky’ Huckeridge and Paul Maurice. Collectively they call themselves Gallops!

Having received airplay from BBC Radio 1 Wales’ Bethan Elfyn this week, the buzz around Gallops! is starting to make ground. ‘Why?’ I hear you shout…. Well, the music scene in Wrexham is predominantly a-wash with indie-rock bands, which is not entirely a bad position to be in, but everyone likes to come up for some fresh air now and again, and Gallops! have provided just that.

I think you need to hear to believe, with more recordings in the pipeline they only have a couple of tunes to ear orgasm over at the moment, ‘Crutches’ and ‘Lasers’. Visit myspace.com/thegallopsband for a listen.

Catch them on 28th December at The Old Swan.

  1. This is the buzz we want around a local band! I’ll definitely be at the Old Swan gig – hopefully they’ll inspire younger bands to start ‘thinking outside the box’ around here

  2. PERFECT! The type of band that wrexham needs. About bloody time

  3. They make nice fruit smoothies.
