Aged 14 – 18? JW3 are Looking for Bands to Take Part in Their Own Battle of the Bands

Migdal Ohr, in partnership with JW3, have teamed up to create BANGERS & CRASH. This fresh, festival-themed battle of the bands will present some of the best homegrown London talent. Featuring an impressive roster of musicians aged 14-18, with an equally exciting panel of judges, BANGERS & CRASH will be kicking off 2017 in a loud way!

THE PRIZE: A 5-Hour recording session at Premises Studios with a top sound engineer supplied by Premises. Other artists who have recorded at Premises include, Florence and the Machine, Jamie T, Paolo Nutini and Michael Bublé.

THE JUDGES: Max Bloom; the founding member of London-based, indie band Yuck. With three albums and performances at Glastonbury, Coachella, Reading and Leeds, Max is excited to see the band’s create some major hype.
Jules Drade; a guitarist/producer/songwriter who has worked with artists in London, Peru and the U.S. He is currently working on an international project that fuses the sounds of Peru & Columbia with psychedelic influences from England and Spain. His ear for originality will be defining presence on the judging panel.
