Although the band have always impressed live, one of their most impressive performance to date
was at the local battle of the bands, where they comprehensively won the competition, beating
over 25 bands. After winning through several heats they played to a capacity crowd of over a
thousand people at the Queensway hall. They astounded the judges who ranged from professional
musicians to representatives of the music industry and were unanimously voted winners.
The band received good local media coverage as a result of the competition including
two appearances on the BBC radio’s multi award winning John Gaunt breakfast show.
They also received heavy coverage in the local papers where they received rave reviews from all.
“Loose Thread took the top spot with a set of original powerful alternative rock numbers,
fronted by vocalist, guitarist and all round manic performer Dave Broomhead whose powerful
voice gives a cutting edge to their brand of jagged rock. Vocal harmony support from guitarist
Kev Sigley gives the band’s sound a depth and the “hooky” self-penned numbers made their set
memorable on the night. Grinning bass player Don Vince and drummer Graham Lyon provided
a no-nonsense, rock steady foundation for the music to either soar to the stratosphere
or creep up from behind and surprise you”.
