The Band

Originally known as Jago, the band won a competition to have a video made of one of their songs, “Before I’m Gone For Good”, by the BBC, having 2 world number ones on the prestigious, worldwide distribution deals on a string of download sites Appearing on local radio, TV and Sky, numerous local press articles and appearing at a whole bunch of top London venues; You would think Norwich band Hardly Mozart would be sitting back congratulating themselves. Not a bit of it! Instead they reinvented themselves with a whole new exciting, unique brand of rock with a pop/punk edge and embarked on a mission to shake up the music scene. 
The result was dramatic, Hardly Mozart signed publishing to Cringe Music and a release on Red Admiral Records, for their new album.

Chris Ashman, boss of Red Admiral Records said,
“We are very excited to have discovered “Hardly Mozart”. It is rare to find a great band of real musicians who also write world-class songs and so ably perform them dynamically anywhere in total empathy with their audience. “The band’s first album with us “Whatever Happened To Jago?” is a stunning representation of cultured Pop punk at it’s best and shows the versatility of this band, presenting some absolutely serious contention for the charts, and ballads to die for. The majors dropped-off letting us find this band first, what are their A & R departments doing?  This is crazy”

Confidence in ther future success for the band
came from many quarters including the privilege of having Dave Greenslade as a guest on keyboards for the ballad
“On My PC”

promotional pictureOnce Labelled as the top unsigned band in the country the boys had been called Jago after the infatuation exposed for the TV weather girl (Its boy thing), but serious about their future, a unique name was required so, It’s Hardly Mozart.

Around 500 fans packed into the Apollo in Harleston and another 450-crammed Wortwell in February to hear a preview of the “
Whatever Happened To Jago?” album, which propelled Hardly Mozart onto
theinternational stage.

promotional pictureThere is a whole new powerful edge to the music.The driving guitars of Wayne Elvin and Yoy Wilkinson, fuelled by the explosive beat of the wonderful Danny Peck on drums is infectious. Combine this with their already legendarysong writing ability, passion and purity of vocals from Matthew Mead, close harmonies from bass player Steve Renaut and you have an arm twitching, leg shaking, earth moving, ground breaking, rule changing mix that you will want to hear again and again.The album was launched to their enthusiastic local fans at the Waterfront, Norwich in thanks for the help and support shown. With the London launch at the Dublin Castle (see video of She Spent The Night with Me) and Propeller
on Sky TV.
