Never The Bride – You’re Not Alone

With there sadly be­ing no gigs at the Wok­ing­ham Mu­sic Club (WMC) at the mo­ment due to the virus, Chris asked WMC boss Stan Hether­ing­ton to pick a few tracks by his favourite bands that have played at the club over the years. Here’s his first and we’ll be in­clud­ing more in weeks to come.

Stan picked this track as he ex­plained that the band were the first act to play at WMC back in April 2012. Stan said: “They have writ­ten such great songs but I think my favourite from that first gig was this one as it re­ally showed Nikki Lam­born's tal­ent as a singer and it al­ways makes the hairs on the back of my neck stand up”. www.nev­er­the­bride.com

Selina and the Howlin Dogs – Mu­sic Is

A Wok­ing­ham Fes­ti­val favourite, this Read­ing-based band that de­scribe them­selves as rock/funk/rap have re­cently re­leased a spe­cial mu­sic video col­lab­o­ra­tion for this song.

The band ex­plain that “dur­ing the lock­down, we wanted to do some­thing to en­gage with peo­ple, keep­ing busy with some­thing creative as well as hav­ing a bit of fun”.

So they cre­ated the video as a com­mu­nity project to col­lab­o­rate re­motely. Check it out at www.face­book.com/Seli­naandtheHo­wl­inDogs
