Ungagged Bands


Formed in MK in the summer of 2017, Indie/Rock ‘n’ Roll bringers Candidates are standing up to deliver ‘punch the air, uplifting’ songs, in a time when there is so much noise – but not enough being said!

The band was created when singer/songwriter Steve Wells (formerly of The Vision, FalloW & Colony) posted a speculative message on the conveyor belt of voyeurism that is Facebook, looking for a lead guitarist and bass player to join him and fellow Newport Pagnell musician Neil Kenton in forming a new project. BLUE CABS’ Jimi Cook (guitar) and Paul Pugh (Bass) responded with interest and a new chapter for everyone had begun.

With a mutual appreciation for hard hitting beats, rumbling bass, soaring guitars and meaningful lyrics sung with passion and a relatable vulnerability, these self-taught individuals quickly became a band with purpose, combining influences including Oasis, The Verve, The Stone Roses, The Stranglers, Starsailor, The Cribs and Skunk Anansie amongst others to mix in to one big creative melting pot.
