Working for a Nuclear Free City
1. Eighty Eight
2. Push The Button
Working For A Nuclear Free City came together in January 2004. Initially the studio project of the founding members Phil Kay (producer / keyboards) and Gary Mclure (guitars) since 1999, 2004 saw the band first take to the stage, now joined by drummer Jon Kay, and bassist Ed Hulme.
After a number of years confined solely to the studio, they began the process of turning the layered studio tracks into a more stream-lined live set and initial performances were extremely well received.
During 2005, the band will continue to perform live in their hometown of Manchester, where they have gathered a considerable fan base. Key performances were Manchester's d:percussion, Futuresonic & In The City festivals.

"These are instant theme tunes, little soundtracks and bursts of activity that make the band absolutely worth watching. Whilst peers loom slightly higher in the "watch this" stakes, methinks that WFANFC can easily slip in, under cover of night and smuggle out that trophy of "Gonna Be" for 2005. Ace, superb and a head wrangling inspiration."
