The Radio Makers - a hard hitting alternative glam, pop quartet, who with the classic bass, drums, guitar line-up, deliver a catchy brand of 'in your face' power-pop which combines edgy guitars, funky bass-lines, driving drums and anthemic sing-along choruses to deliver a sound that has been likened to The Cure meets Bowie's Ziggy Stardust with early Tubeway Army and Franz Ferdinand thrown in.
We have been received rave reviews for our pulsating live shows across the south west of England over the last 2 year. Highlights include sell out support slots with the legandary Toyah WIlcox, the Blockheads, Spear of Destiny and the Quireboys to rave reviews.
