THE cream of musical talent was rich as bands from Harworth and Bircotes launched a brand-new album to showcase their varied talents.
Music fans at the Welfare Hall gathered to listen to eight acts all of whom feature on the Put Me Back On My Bike album.
Bungalow Club, Dakota, Unicorn Hunters, Music To Drive Tanks To, You Addiction, Nexus Noise, Jery At Controls and newly-reformed after 33 years Deemus Mint wowed the crowds who turned out in full force at the special event.
Event spokesman and guitarist with Music to Drive Tanks To John Alexander, said the launch celebrated a wealth of diverse and professional musical talent in the area.
“It was an absolutely amazing success and the atmosphere was really electric,” he said.
“It was great to see not only a range of not just musical diversity but ages too from a relatively small community such as Harworth and Bircotes.”
He added: “Everything is on the album from indie, electro and rock to ska and punk music. It’s not all isolated sounds either - when you listen to the album from start to finish it really makes sense.”
The bands are now gearing up for a two-day concert at the Welfare and Blacksmiths Arms on 5th and 6th August in aid of Cancer Research and Bassetlaw Hospice.
