Blank Promotions have joined forces with the arty musical obsessives at Notes Magazine to present one of Britains finest instrumental bands, Maybeshewill at Cluny 2 on Friday October 1st.

Their music is full of the kind of fury and emotional intensity that was seen in the early 65dos days and their ‘to the point’ style of post-rock keeps you constantly engaged.


Their bedroom recorded debut ep caught the attention of Japanese label Xtal who promptly snapped them up at the same time as UK based label, Field Records.

A year later they self-recorded and released their first full-length LP ‘Not For Want Of Trying’, which received widespread critical acclaim. RockSound, Drowned In Sound and Kerrang loved it and Huw Stephens made it his album of the week on Radio 1. Their second full-length arrived just 11 months later, and received a similarly ecstatic reception.

Since then toured as far afield as Japan, Russia and Europe and spent more time in vans around the UK than is probably good for their health. They’ve played Truck Festival, 2000trees, Summer Sundae, Dot To Dot, Brainwash and Off The Cuff and supported everyone from A Silver Mt. Zion and 65daysofstatic to Foals and Johnny Truant.
