What an exciting time it was last year when word rapidly spread that Gallops were going to re-gallop. fter a hiatus of four years, the Wrexham band announced not only their valiant return to the stage, but that a new album would be on the cards.
We had the chance to catch Six Hands on their UK tour earlier this year, putting a smile on everyone's faces with their fun personalities and adept performances of happy-go-lucky math rock.

All The Best Tapes are back, friends. Real back. Self-categorized under the tongue-in-cheek genre of 'thrash jazz' (about as tongue-in-cheek as 'math rock' - Ed.), the Stoke quartet are 'waking the egg' in their latest video, 'Perfect Hibernation'.
