Last but by no means least are the amazing Woodenbox With A Fistful Of Fivers. Had the pleasure of seeing Ali and the guys a few times this year and was blown away. In particular the first time I caught them live they threatened to steal the show at Bedlam Theatre in Edinburgh when they supported Broken Records.
Debut album "Home and the Wildhunt" is scheduled for release in February through Electric Honey Records and arrives on the back of acclaimed singles "Draw A Line", "Twisted Mile" and the cracking "Hang The Noose" which hits you like a runaway train straight out of the Wild West!
Hang The Noose
