“'Two Fifths of Albion' as they were to be known for the rest of the night, didn't seem like less than half a band at all, their preparation was somewhat thorough and their appearance and persona highly professional. They looked the part and sounded even more so, the hits sounded fantastic with an low-key acoustic approach and the musicians pot (a contributory fee towards the musicians and their efforts) began to fill with generous offerings.”
“MMG BATTLE OF THE BANDS WIN!
On Sat 27 August 2013, Bourne Indie band Albion won the judges votes at the east midlands final of the MMG Battle of Bands. The regional final, held at The Shed in Leicester (ww.shedvenuedirect.co.uk ) comprised of 6 bands ranging from punk rock to light entertainment and was a very well attended event with support for every band. Albion won over both the crowd and the judges which awarded them recording (Time Curly Lead Recording Studios), 50 copies of their next release (MMG), a large banner bearing their logo (thebannerhub.co.uk), guitar pedal (Marshall), Guitar Amp (Marshall), guitar survival pack (D’Addario), drum vouchers (Talkin Headz) and Albion T-shirts (great branding co). The band now look forward to the national final which is to be held at the Marshall Amplification HQ in Milton Keynes with the main prize being a recording contract.
