Diamond Head
Teenagers Brian Tatler and Duncan Scott first started writing music together in Stourbridge in early 1976, with Brian on cheap fuzz guitar and Duncan playing drums on biscuit tins. Brian had a poster of an album by Phil Manzanera called Diamond Head that was released in 1975 and he thought “that would be a good name for the band”.

Praying Mantis
Originally formed in 1973 by the Troy brothers, Tino and Chris, Praying Mantis became one of THE most influential bands of the New Wave of British Heavy Metal (NWOBHM). The band is also one of a very small number of bands from that era to have remained a going concern over the intervening years, and to still record and appear live regularly.

Massive Wagons
Formed in 2009 the guys wasted no time hitting the ground running, gig after gig, a relentless attitude to playing live, armed with a set of songs some reviewers remarked were “written with their hearts on their sleeves” the Wagons played everywhere, every shithole, nightclub, rock boozer, biker bar, up and down the country. And so to the present, the current situation, STILL the same lineup, STILL the same live chemistry, and STILL the same hunger and desire to succeed.
