BBC Introducing The Sport at The Box
November 14, 2010 Leave a comment
The boys return to the venue following a top quality debut at the venue earlier this year.
The Sport are proud to be in possession of a bunch of soaring sing-along anthems that inspire everyone who hear them play to want to join in the fun.
But behind the lad rock exterior lies lyrically excellent frontman Nic Andrews whose self-parodying lyrics in songs such as Lightweight are a sheer joy.
Marrying melodies effortlessly, with lines about being ‘first on the floor being stamped on more than anyone else in the fray’, are the work of no mere footie hooligan with a microphone.
The Sport connect with anyone who has the eyes and ears to see and hear a great band at work.
If you’re not into the idea of a northern guitar band making great tunes then there’s nothing for you here.
Meanwhile let the rest of us party with The Sport.
The band are Nic Andrews, Matt Jones (drums), Nick Gallacher (bass/vocals), Mark Taylor (guitar/vocals) and Alex Shenton (guitar).
