Feud for thought


PROMISING band The Feud can’t wait to headline the second instalment of Morecambe’s answer to Later...with Jools Holland

And the way things have been going for the electro-rock three-piece, you wouldn’t rule out an appearance on the real thing in the future!

Earlier this year The Feud’s terrific single It Ain’t Right was played by Radio 1 DJs Fearne Cotton and Greg James.

Now they will return in triumph to their home area for a set at the popular Later...With Jools Netherland night at the Platform on Friday, October 12.

Six of the area’s best local bands will be playing across three stages in a mini-festival hosted by Steven Wren, the popular singer/keyboard player with soul group 24/7.

The first ‘Jools Netherland’ night at the Platform proved a big crowd pleaser back in April, so organisers thought they would do it all again with a different line-up of bands.

“We had heard about it through friends who played it and attended the event and they all said it was an awesome night,” said Luke Paget, drummer with The Feud.

“So when we were approached to play we jumped at the chance.”

The band has also recorded a superb cover version of Kate Bush’s Running Up That Hill, inspired by its play at the Olympic closing ceremony and Luke says: “We are now looking forward to getting our album done and hopefully Radio 1 will continue to play us!”

Also on the bill at the Platform are Idol Minds, PNUK, The Remedy Project, The Beat Offended and Massive Wagons.Doors 7.30pm. Over 18s only. Tickets cost £10 from Morecambe Visitor Information Centre or call 01524 582803.
