They’ve lived together, studied together, busked around Europe together and nearly died together  following a hair-raising post-gig car crash on  the M1 near Rugby…Cardboard Radio are Andy Gaines, Simon “Simo” Edwards  and Benn “Chord” Cordrey, who acquired their name following a busking tour of Europe, where they encountered a Czech tramp who would dance around whilst precariously balancing an old box on his shoulder,  convinced the music was coming from his makeshift ghetto blaster as the boys serenaded the Prague streets. 

The Yorkshire three-piece have been fervently writing, promoting and
gigging since the start of 2016, firmly establishing themselves on the local scene and amassing the ever-growing support of the “Cardie Army”. Having played over 150 shows from the smallest, dankest pubs and working men’s clubs to prestigious live venues in London, Manchester, Leeds, Nottingham, Sheffield and York, the band has appeared on TV show “UK Unsigned”, recorded their second EP with tracks appearing on and Barfly’s ‘Best of Barfly Unsigned’’ collection and received much attention from regional and national press. 

Recent supports with major label acts have allowed the band to show
themselves in the same league as the likes of “The Others”, “The Glitterati”, “Maxïmo Park” and “The Arctic Monkeys”, and 2005 has already seen the boys organising their own 2 week national tour, culminating in a sell-out headline at York Fibbers Barfly, as well as securing slots at the Moor Music and Carling Leeds Festivals and much more gigging and recording to come. 

“…You pray for a band who believes like you do in the glorious life affirming clatter of maximum mod-soul ROCK AND ROLL! You need a band prepared to testify! Hip cats and kittens, I present to you a band battling at the punk blues front line. I present to you: CARDBOARD RADIO!” Paul Lowman, The Link.
