You know the story... three musicians from a no-name town, fed up withlistening to the music played on the radio came together to form a band. Butthis is where the familiarity ends...These young purveyors of New Wave Punk Rock, are here to shake things up andgive Pop music a much needed shot of adrenaline. They are fast, they areloud and they want to get up in everyone's faces. Adam Saunderson, Bradley Stainton, and Johnny Shinner are taking influencefrom the best of British and American Pop Rock; from The Cars to The Police,from Green Day to The Sex Pistols. Real bands that play live music. To the outside world they were simply the punks, the weirdos, the outsiders,but together they are BIG ZERO.
Folk-pop singer, writer and loop maker Alex Hulme returns to the AAA as partof his promotional tour for his new single 'Climb'. Plaudits from PaulMcCartney and Billy Ocean aside, his work has received critical acclaim fromthe likes of Ultimate Guitar and the Beeb.Alex performs like his life depends on it. Don't just take our word for it;listen to Sir Macca, listen for yourself. He conquers the intricate layeringof loops on a live stage that would put his hero, Foy Vance, to shame, andcoming from a humble rural background in the North West, he has a lot totalk about. His lyrics are striking, his vocals are velveteen.
"A beautiful song and a wonderful melody" - Sir Paul McCartney
