SLYDIGS might not be a name that is new to you. This young four-piece is the real deal: great songs, musicianship, attitude and charisma - they have it all. They have a genuine buzz going on. When their first single, ‘Electric Love’, was released, the NME said: ‘Make sure that it is one of the five tracks you buy this month’
The video of the single was also awarded Video Of The Week on Sky Music Channel, Lava, and was also in the Radar Section of NME TV.
Channel 4 has also featured ‘Electric Love’ on the new show ‘Fresh Meat’ and it was also used in a C5 advert. And that is only the start, because SLYDIGS have already supported Pete Doherty, The New York Dolls, The Fall, Idlewild, Shack, Alabama 3… and the list goes on.
In 2011, the band played numerous festivals, such as HAIGH FEST (The Coral / Courteneers), SOUTHPORT ROCKS FESTIVAL and EXMOUTH FESTIVAL. They also opened the WESPORT MUSIC FESTIVAL in County Mayo.
Have a look at what people are saying about SLYDIGS:
“With energy to boot, the band are a tornado of great indie music from thudding drum beats and riffs that makes it impossible to keep still” Review: 100 Club - 2012.
“SLYDIGS have got the looks, the haircuts, the riffs, a Manchester postcode and a love of money, women and fast cars. In short, everything they need to be the saviours of rock ‘n’ roll and kick out the indie-kids and electronica knob twiddlers.” Review: Radio Caroline TV
“Slydigs? Yeah, they’re OK” David Gilmour, Pink Floyd.
SLYDIGS’ debut album ‘Never To Be Tamed’ was released on Sept 24th on Flicknife Records and is available now on Amazon.co.uk, iTunes and HMV.com
’The Love That Keeps On Giving' is the video of the band's highly acclaimed latest single.

“‘SLYDIGS are the latest spectacular find for Flicknife Records. An Alternative/Underground label in it for the long-haul, who have previously given us the likes of Hawkwind, Erazerhead & Inner City Unit, come up with yet another amazing band. Slydigs are surely the saviours of modern rock’n’roll, the pure energy of this album is quite astounding! One of our favourite albums of 2012… find out more @ www.slydigs.co.uk or www.flicknife.n.nu’”
"Hands down, utter perfection. Not a foot put wrong on these blistering, furious, roaring choons…"electric love" is simply magnificent..and with the strong vibes of Arctic Monkeys, Kasabian and The Verve bursting from the seams, it reminds me of just how good solid, uncluttered rock n roll should be!!"
"SLYDIGS. Never To Be Tamed (Flicknife). Wild indie rockers from the Greater Manchester area. 9/10. At times sounding like a curious combination of the White Stripes, Oasis, Stereophonics and the Arctic Monkeys, it’s clear Slydigs aren’t averse to expansive guitar-led tunes. But there’s a distinct 1960s R&B vibe about their sound too, just check out the brass section on ‘Bang, Bang My Bullet Was Gone’, and Dean Fairhurst’s sublimely soulful vocals thought. Slydigs are one of the most catchy new bands I’ve heard in ages: the new single ‘The Love That Keeps On Giving’ and the bouncy title track both bear all the hallmarks of bona fide indie rock anthems. Commercial potential is high then and as the beckoning finger of mainstream success draws them ever nearer the big time, I don’t doubt for a moment that Slydigs will be snapped up by a major label sooner or later.
