Link below to the Slydigs interview on Mudkiss, a great new band from Warrington.
While Warrington is situated centrally between Manchester and Liverpool, it is a town rooted in the folklore of one of the toughest of all team sports, Rugby League rather than the football and musical reputation of it’s larger, more expansive neighbours. Local lads Slydigs, (Dean Fairhurst – Guitar / Lead Vocals, Louie Menguy -Guitar / Vocals, Adam Thornton – Bass, Pete Fleming – Drums) although taking influences from both the Mancunian and Liverpudlian ends of the East Lancs Road, add a hard edged stamp to their personal brand of Rock n Roll with a rhythm section as solid as an advancing pack and quick, blistering guitar breaks a scrum half would be proud of.
We initially met three quarters of the band (bass player Adam’s timing being not quite as impressive for the interview as it is musically) in their rehearsal room above The Albion Hotel in Warrington to find out how Slydigs came into existence, where they are now and what they hope to achieve this year.
