Mixing with the stars!

Having experienced what it is like to mix with people of a high status such as the likes of Dion Dublin , Andy Hopkins and Stephen graham all previously at celebrity LUKE 1977 golf day, our latest addition to our celebrity fan base is session drummer Ash Sheehan. Ash drums at gigs and concerts all over Europe for artists such as The Twang and Busta Rhymes. He is a very down to earth guy and originally from Walsall! , he was quick to join the lads from the band for a night out down town and even quicker to bag himself a ticket for our upcoming headline gig on 15th November at the O2 academy in Birmingham.

M.A.S photoshoot

After weeks of 'paid for rehearsals' down at burntwood's studio's , M.A.S felt it was time to take that next step in terms of promoting our band. Rehearsal time has helped us massively towards developing our music , becoming tight as a band and finding our sound. Most of all it has opened up more opportunities to concentrate on other things that come with being in a band. This past weekend we took part in a photo-shoot down at our previous rehearsal area A.J.S metals. We felt it would be a great background for the photo-shoot as it is a family scrapyard and has played a big part in developing the band.

Finding our sound! (control)

Having recently been working hard these past few weeks in the studios we believe we have managed to emphasise the sound we aim to promote in our most recent songs. We also thought its about time we shared our music with you to give you an idea of what sort of band we are, the writing process we go through and the sound we offer. The following tune has been recorded and put up on Soundcloud for you lot to listen too, the tune is called 'control' and is a very upbeat song. You can listen below at

'LUKE 1977' gig

Last night we played a golf day gig for clothing range 'LUKE 1977' at culderfields golf course in Walsall. The day overall was a great day and we managed to gain a few celebrity fans. We had an early set time of 6:30 opening the indoor music bill whilst everyone returned from there 18 holes. The day will be remembered for a long time as the day Stephen graham (This is England, Boardwalk Empire) became a fan of The Assist. His exact words were "you lads really capture the essence". He was quick to snap a demo CD off us for his car and also made himself aware of our upcoming tour dates.
