Hailing from Harwich, a miserable Essex coastal town, formerly a significant port but now in decline and left for dead, ‘wireless’ were launched to alleviate the boredom of their depressing home town.
Taking their time to develop their songwriting and stage-craft, ‘wireless’ drew on influences such as ‘Doves’, ‘The Jam’, ‘Stereophonics’ and ‘The Beatles’ to make sure that when they hit the stage people would take notice… And they did!
Quickly building a fanatical and loyal following, the band’s blistering set of original songs has earnt them a reputation for exhilarating live performances and an excellent night out. Regular visits to London with coach-loads of fans and a summer festival gig playing to 4000 people in support of ‘The Levellers’ have cemented their reputation as one of the best bands on the Essex scene.
2007 sees ‘wireless’ pushing hard for the recognition that is surely due.
