Born from a fusion of
everything that is good about the rock scene of the last decade, The
Amy Trade have hit
hard and fast with their own brand of
raw, relentless, good time rock and roll.
The ideology is
simple: if it sounds great, they'll play it. Pounding drums and
thumping bass lines, layered with crunching rhythms and lead riffs
to die for. Top it all off with instantly infectious pop melodies
and intricate harmonies and you're left with a sound that shows no
shame towards its musical heritage but a sound that is still
distinctly, uniquely, The Amy Trade.
Bass player Dan,
drummer Steve and guitarists/vocalists Martin and Dave grew up
's clubs and bars looking for the next gig. With the arrival of
vocalist Rachel from the equally well endowed northern music scene,
the band line up was complete. Spoilt for choice by a wealth of
great bands from their years of musical self-education, The Amy
Trade took their cues from the likes of The Wildhearts,
Symposium, Jimmy Eat World, Green Day and Ash, and began plotting
their own assault on the music world. Now they've found their voice
and they're ready to take the crowds by storm.
