COMING UP: The Sums at The Zanzibar, 24 Nov 2012

Liverpool band The Sums play a hometown show this Saturday (24 November) at The Zanzibar, along with local lads Mercury 13, Professor Yaffle, The Cheap Thrills and DJ Andy Carroll.


Mercury 13’s blend of classic pop evokes everyone from XTC to Love and they’ve already supported Field Music, I Am Kloot, John Head and Pete Wylie. Next month sees the release of their debut single.

Psyche-Folk Troubadour Professor Yaffle A.K.A. Lee Rogers has a longstanding love of folk music particularly that of Nick Drake, Neil Young and Jake Thackray, which can also be appreciated when listening to a Professor Yaffle track.

The Cheap Thrills are a self-proclaimed garage flavoured punk rock band with a scouse accent and winners of this year’s Liverpool Sound City Youth Live. They were also picked as one of the best young Merseyside bands by the Roscoe Youth Music Project 2012.

DJ’ing on the night is Andy Carroll. No matter where in the world you find yourself today, you will not be far from a club that has in some way been touched by the Andy Carroll effect.

It’s been a bench mark for The Sums over the past 12 months – Peter ‘Digsy’ Deary (guitar /vocals), Chris Mullin (bass /vocals), Lee Watson (guitar) and Chris Campbell (drums). They released their debut album If Only on their own label, played the main stage at The Mathew Street Festival for BBC’s Introducing Dave Monks, performed at the Don’t Buy the Sun/James McVey gig alongside the likes of Clash legend Mick Jones and only last month supported Captain Beefheart’s iconic band, The Magic Band.


Next year will see The Sums concentrate on their own independent record label. “Nowhere Music is a record label which myself and manager/promoter Derek Hazell formed last year and we put out the last Sums album If Only. We’re starting to do a lot more with it like releasing myself and singer Digsy’s old band Smaller’s b sides and rare tracks, and possibly a couple from the un released 2nd Smaller album. It’s a UK based independent record label, which aims to deal with an array of eclectic music for like-minded people.” says The Sums bassist Chris Mullin.

The Sums write strong, passionate, addictive melodies and pen lyrics which are as sharp as knife!
