“FROM footballers to fashion gurus and royalty to rock stars, Cheltenham Festival was awash with celebrities for Ladies' Day. Bass guitarist Tom Marshall, 24, from band Stubblemelt, was also at the races, after his band appeared on BBC Introducing. He said: "This is my first time here and I will be back." ”
“IT'S ABIT OF ROCK 'N' GOAL THINK football'smusical double actsand Glenn Hoddle and Chris Waddle performing Diamond Lights,complete with late Eighties dinner jacket and top-button shirt combo,immediately comes to mind. Fast forward a quater of a century and blue sqr prem buddies kyle perry & tom marshall are following on former Totenham and England stars shoes-though sadly not on Top Of The Pops. Grimey Rock Pop band Stubblemelt are chasing the bright lights despite ex tamworth team mates leaving for lincoln and kidderminster in the summer. Together with bandmates Tom Watkins and David Ashford the pair have just released their debut EP 'The Search'.The Search with all artwork by Perry is available on Itunes for £3.95 or 75p a track.and the 25 year old added 'Football is the bread and butter for the pair of us,The music is a bit of fun that might turn into something,People in the industry told us to get our EP ot there and it might lead to us playing festivals,which would be fantastic''”
“these guys could be BIG but you have to give them credit as they've only been together a short while and have already mastered the art of creating a truly unique track which many well-established bands have failed to do.”
"We are called Stubblemelt and have been playing for about four months now and it is going really well. "I am the bassist and backing vocalist whereas Kyle is the lead singer. "We have had a few gigs now and have even been called back at the Varsity in Wolverhampton to play again so we must be doing something right." The Tamworth two are part of a five-man strong band that Marshall describes as a 'funky rock act'.
