Customer Spotlight: Up to the Rafters
Up to the Rafters formed during the summer of 2007, and their first gig was supporting The Gossip at the Manchester Pride festival.
They have a little summary of their aesthetic ideas that goes as follows:
"U.T.T.R. are known to cause involuntary foot movement and in severe cases spontaneous euphoria. Symptoms include; exhilaration, joyfulness, throwing your hands up in the air, sweating, getting a rush and jumping against the ceiling. We set out to make people dance, provoking a few thoughts upstairs as well as below the waistline! We see ourselves as the logical outcome of the evolution of pop music. We are proud of our Mancunian musical heritage whilst not getting bogged down in it. We doff our caps to bands such as Joy Division, The Libertines, The Smiths and more recently The Whip."
Here's their lineup and which gear they use:
Trevor Chapman - Vocals/Guitar ("We use sm58's in rehearsal for vocals. Trev is shortly buying a new guitar")
Chris Croft - Keyboard ("I use a yamaha mm6 purchased from you")
Ian Renfrew - Bass (Fender Jazz, Laney Amp)
Jimmy Aykroyd - Drums (Pearl)
