Biography

Random Hand are a 4 piece punk band from Keighley West Yorkshire. Their sound fuses influences from many genres, including ska, reggae, punk, metal, hip hop and dub. The band is typically associated with the punk scene due to its ethics and lyrical content. The main themes represented within the songs are usually of a social and/or political nature, which reflects the environment in which they were written. The band have acquired a nationwide UK fan base and are renowned for their energetic live shows.

Random Hand formed in late 2002, and consists of Joe Tilston (Bass & Vocals), Robin Leitch (Vocals & Trombone), Mathew Crosher (Guitar & Vocals) and Joe Dimuantes (Percussion & Samples). The four members came from three other bands who played a part in the local Keighley scene in the years leading up to the formation of Random Hand.

Random Hand played their first show on 31st December 2002 at a local house party. The first official gig was on Valentines Day 2003 at the Vic Hotel in Keighley. The gig was followed with other shows around the West Yorkshire, namely in Huddersfield, Leeds and Halifax.

The band recorded a demo in the summer of 2003, comprising four tracks with a hint of what was to develop into the band’s trademark heavy punk/ska sound. The demo was given as a free release for download, while the band continued to gig and develop their sound.
