Hello. Each week on BBC Introducing in N.I on Radio 1 an unsigned band or artist takes us around their home town or city for a musical tour. I'm quite keen to represent Portadown, Downpatrick and Cookstown and was wondering if any bands or artists are from there?
please dont merge this thread Roger. it's a different conversation to the other thread asking where bands are from.
Kitty and the Can Openers are 3/4 from Portadown/Lurgan.
TRUCKER Diablo Lurgan/ Portadown
We already done the Lurgan one a few weeks back!
Microlip are all from Portadown.
I'm from Portadown, but would be at a total loss as to what exactly could be reported for a musical tour of this shithole! :lol:
I'd quite like to see radio one covering the 'scene' in such places as Helmand Province, Afghanistan, South Central LA, The Bronx in New York, and that prison from Scum where Ray Winstone smashes the guys teeth against a urinal.
Yours, concerned license fee payer
MICROLIP all hail form Portadown and would be well up for it! www.myspace.com/microlip. Cheers steve and Captin kennedy for the heads up!

Yeo Rory, Ellipsus are from Dungannon/Cookstown. We've been gigging around there for the past months. We're up in Belfast also cause of Uni etc.
We'd be very interested in taking part.
Here's some info about us: http://www.myspace.com/ellipsusband
unfortunately we have no songs up yet, but we'll be putting up a single, and another couple of songs from our EP very soon.
