Puppet Rebellion are a five piece Indie band from Manchester, England. Comprising of Oliver Davis (vocals), Danny Moss (drums), Paul Trochowski (guitar), James Halliwell (bass) and Craig Gibson (guitar), the band are currently releasing their 3rd E.P. in August 2015 entitled "Life Is In Your Hands".
Following the first two E.P.'s "Chemical Friends" and "No Means Yes" the band have been amassing a fan base and media attention, primarily with their live performances supporting the likes of Reverend And The Makers and Catfish And The Bottlemen around the Northwest and other UK venues.
For me, I think the band are a mix of Razorlight and The Jam, although that's just my opinion. There are elements of Classic Rock guitar riffs and some great melodies, like a really rocky version of Inspiral Carpets. There is obviously a Manchester sound but the band are breaking the stereotypes of the likes of Oasis, for reasons beyond me, the new bands want to be likened to. This is a new band with a new sound, and they can play! Favourite tracks of mine are "Claim To Fame" and "Cupboards Painted Red".
Both Manchester football clubs have embraced the Puppet Rebellion sound using tracks for Goal Of The Month (City) and half-time music Champions League music (United). It's time we hear more of this great band on the radio's around the country and beyond. An Indie Rock band with a difference, the Puppet Rebellion starts here!
