Steve Roberts

Steve Roberts is a singer-songwriter from Liverpool, UK, described by The Guardian as an acoustic troubadour. His first proper band 16 Tambourines was a sprawling affair that played gigs as a 3 piece (the ‘angry young men’ set) up to an 8 piece with brass, percussion and on occasions a didgeridoo. The band played pubs and basement bars that usually only allowed cover bands. “We practised in the middle of town at a place called The Ministry, were the Bunnymen and Teardrops used to rehearse when they were dead famous and heard loads of great stories about them that just frustrated us.

The Threats

Threats Page is actually here The Threats started of life in 1977 as the Reflectors. Just 4 local lads from Dalkeith in Midlothian Scotland who had a collective interest in Music.. Jim and Gogsy were next door neighbours from when they were born and grew up together. Early memories were a great interest in all things guitar based. The bands that they grew up with were the glam bands of the 1970's. It was all based on rock n' roll with bags o' fun thrown in for good measure. (That rings a bell). Slade, T-Rex, Sweet, Mud, you get the picture.
