A bit of what you fancy!
Introduction
Strangeways are a 5 piece indie / psychedelic / rock and roll band from Manchester, UK. When they formed in early 2013 there were only 3 members, Rick Howe (Lead/2nd Guitar), Alex Jenner (Drums) and Simon Collier (Lead Vocals/Rhythm Guitar). As a trio the band recorded a couple, low quality demo's which were rather well received, especially 'Beautifully Wired' and 'Cold Blooded Murder'. In July 2013 they recruited Kris Loughlin, originally to play bass, but decided to have Kris play guitar as well as Rick and Simon, allowing them to achieve the big, robust sound that they wanted. In August 2013, Jack Delany joined the group on bass and Strangeways were complete.

 

They played their first gig at the Witchwood, Ashton on 17th August for Tameside Radio's Unsigned Showcase. The studio version of 'Beautifully Wired' was played on Dennis Matthews' Tameside Radio show the week before to promote the gig; this was Strangeways' first airplay on the radio.

 

Jack Delany left - Sept 2013
Thom Castle joined - Nov 2013

  

They currently have a  5 Track EP "Strangedays" available to download off Soundcloud!(www.soundcloud.com/strangewaysmusic) including the tracks, 'What You Fancy', 'Beautifully Wired', 'Cold Blooded Murder', 'Holster' and 'That Night'
