Hardwicke Circus are a massive eight piece rock ‘n’ roll band: a true rock ‘n’ roll collective, hailing from Annan, Ayr, Carlisle, Edinburgh & Helsinki & probably some other places that only ever existed in the 70’s.
Their music is indie rock, with a confident swagger. Evoking the early 70’s post Altamont malevolence of the Rolling Stones but dragging it kicking & screaming through a modern indie custom cab until it sounds like the Stones are covering Catfish & The Bottlemen. Of course it doesn’t hurt that their lead singer is a dead ringer for the young Mick Jagger & if that isn’t enough you’d swear that a teenage Pete Townsend was playing guitar?
“We’re a Rock ‘n’ Roll band, but musically I hope we’re a whole lot more,” offers front-man Jonny Foster, a confident performer, still only 19, who seems much older and wiser than his years.
