Deaf Club – Live at Reading Festival, 2012

August 28, 2012

Deaf Club

So, on top of everything else I do in a week, I co-manage a great new band called Deaf Club. They played Reading and Leeds on the weekend just gone; below, you can watch footage from the former site’s set.

Thanks to the BBC Introducing team for having them. It was mega.

If you’d like any more info, head to the band’s website, likes.
