The On Offs
About the Gig
Our fourth Subculture - 100 Club gig - saw a packed house again. The On/Off's kicked off the night. These boys are still slightly 'under the radar' but will soon be household names - with a debut album produced by Bernard Butler (Suede) on the way - expect to hear them on your radio soon.
Everyone was warmed up for the guitar hero, and ex-Blur legend, that is Graham Coxon. Commenting during the sound check that it was 'really loud' - it was even louder in the gig! Graham played a blistering one hour set – and then deafening encores saw him play another 25 minutes. An incredible night for those who were lucky to experience a true guitar/indie legend in a 300 capacity club.
Back by very popular demand, Terry Hall (The Specials) delivered another blinding repertoire on the decks. And Graham and the On/Off's happily mixed with the crowd and chatted to fans to the end of the night.
About the Band
Hailing from the musical hotbed that is Northampton, the On/Off's are ready to break out and rip the world asunder. Taking up the baton of British youth (The Kinks, The Jam, The Specials) their razor sharp songs tell of suburban fights, girls and getting out. Music driven by the incendiary beat of The Jam matched to skilfully executed dub-reggae.
Lead singer and guitarist Danny Connors has already been likened to Liam Gallagher and Pete Doherty, exuding charisma and biting urban wit. With their next single cut by Bernard Butler (Producer of the Libertines) and major UK tours lined up with The Ordinary boys and The Zutons – they are without doubt one of the new wave of British bands to watch out for.
