Electronic Press Kit for The Electric Luddites
The Electric Luddites are a mature 4 piece song-based rock band from Sheffield, South Yorkshire, UK. The band specialise in original compositions with anti-establishment sentiments and left-leaning tendencies which they belt out with gusto together with a selection of unusual covers ranging from Dylan to the Clash
With a line-up of guitars, bass , drums and samples the band create a unique wall of sound underpinned by their unrivaled pounding rhythm section that defies conversation and demands toe-tapping at the very least and aspires joyous cavorting to the converted.
All the band members are all long-serving musicans and songwriters with tmany hundreds of hours of public performances behind them and encompass individual backgrounds in an amazingly wide variety of genres from Folk and Country to Hard Rock and Indie with Classical and Punk thrown in for the hell of it.
The band also perform as The Acoustic Luddites using acoustic instruments enabling them to be heard at folk and acoustic venues , open-mic nights etc.
Forsaking their individual musical backgrounds the Electric Luddites sound is like none of these and to emphasise all breaks with the past these band of musical and idiological brothers have decided to adopt new persona for their stage performances :
