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 show across the south west of England over the last year. The highlight was supporting the legendary Blockheads to a sell out crowd at the Fleece in Bristol.
We are currently working on new material and will be going in to the recording studio early 2018.
