View Full Version : Third Time Lucky

Third Time Lucky started back in May 2005, good clean pop punk with elements of heavier rock, and even abit of blues.

Their first gig was in July and we played a full set of originals to an amazing crowd who loved every minute and it all went without a hitch (apart from Danny breaking his friend's spine!)

This was also my bands first completely public gig... our set was also mostly without a hitch... also without spinal injury... which is always a good thing.

They recorded a debut EP, 'Love Etc' after being together for only 4 months and have acquired a large fanbase both in Guernsey (that ikle island i'm from) and in the UK.



you don't need to see the drummer, drumming's for gays

And while you're at their MySpace, check out some of the bands they're friends with, Therapeutic Hoovering, The Mid Carson Coalition, Ziplock, etc...

I was just wondering how do you find out about these bands? Is it like something you hear about or are there music sites you go to?

i'll be honest... a majority of bands i plug are local bands :D

this bands singer is a guy i've known for quite a while, i know the whole band, and they use the same room as my band do for practices.

most of the topics like this are for local bands i think deserve to be heard, but there's a few about people i've heard about through other sources, for example David Rovics, who frankly is fucking amazing! i suggest you look him up, there's 100's of free tracks online because he's a no good hippy :D

sounds pretty good. its the same kind of thing round where i live, i think that local bands shud be helped out so that they can get the chance to live up to thier full potential.

its so true, i'm 100% in favor of sites like mp3click, purevolume, myspace, etc.

the only way music will become a free media again is with the help of sites like that and with the support of people with a passion for the music.

bands have a stupidly small change of getting noticed in any way, and when they do it usually isn't because of their passion of musical ability.

yeah i looked up the David Rovics guy, his lyrics are great, but the vocals kind of ruin it for me...

01-24-2006, 02:31 AM
i love him, he's alot like Billy Bragg... only instead of his hatred only being directed towards the goverment and how they screwed over the British working cl**** Rovics just hates Everything! :D

incredibly true. Oh and on the subject i plan to upload some music from some of the local bands in a couple of days when i have a few of their tracks which i think show the best of what they are capable of. One of these bands called merdfoot are really good.
