Here Casino 

Stiggy Dalziel - Guitar/Vox  Tom Jones - Bass/Vox,

Joe Goodman - Drums/percussion, Bobby Brazier - Guitar

Here Casino are a new 4-piece indie-rock band and are releasing their debut single, "Lucky Shouldn't Do" , on 21st September. Inspired by the plight of a local homeless person, forced to offend in order to get a bed for the night. I asked Stiggy about their influences. "Well it's different for everyone really! Me and Bobby both love The Beatles even though you wouldn't hear it in our sound but we all pretty much listen to the same stuff like Oasis, The Stranglers, Slaves, Foo Fighters, Arctic Monkeys, Catfish & The Bottlemen". Here Casino certainly have captured the energy of the Foo Fighters on this recording which also shares a  style similarity with Rival Bones, Scar.                       Click the picture to hear a preview
