Kill For Company are two Manchester musicians, Michael Banfield plays a unique self-manufactured hybrid guitar/bass and Mark O`Donoughue drums and percussion.
The pair met as 16 year old students, played together in various rock bands but became frustrated by band politics and after seeing various members self combust mentally and physically the idea of a duo was born.

Kill For Company’s sound came with Michael’s big idea, something he had toyed with since doing a guitar tech course in Manchester. Michael created the “Guibass” in essence a lead guitar with two bass strings at the low end, re-jig the pickups, adjust the strings and then split the signal through a bass and lead amp. Much easier said than done, despite all advice to the contrary the “Guibass” was born. Like Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein once Pedals and adjustment to his playing technique were added the results were formidable, They surprisingly found you could get a really full sound in the studio and at live showcases.
Mark and Michael quickly discovered that the instrument gave Kill For Company massive freedom to experiment, the recordings could be done live in rehearsal rooms on Michael’s mobile studio and production done back at home. Their first EP was LoFi alternative rock the second promises to have a more progressive experimental feel.
