1st February 2006 Artist Profile »
The Words Of Wisdom: **THE ON-OFFS consist of Danny Connors (lead vocal, guitar), Andy Croft (vocals, bass) and Luke Goddard (drums, vocals). Coming from the town famous for brewing Carlsberg and cobbling shoes, the trio are an unwitting part of the burgeoning Northampton music scene (see also The Departure, Kapowski, The New Cassettes, Maps) and already kicking up a storm in many other pole axed postcodes.
** 'This Town' / 'Grow Your Own' is THE ON OFFS' debut single and is the third release on the insanely DIY Label Fandango, the record company spun out of the Club Fandango live nights and invented one particularly liquid lunchtime by the makers of Pointy Recordings and fierce panda records.
** As is already traditional with Label Fandango singles 'This Town' - the A-side - captures the brazenly nervous energy of THE ON OFFS' live show where singer Danny (previously signed as a solo artist to Deltasonic) leads the trio through a barrage of punk riffs and mod rolls with a nod to the Jam and Supergrass and a cheeky wink at The Coral. Not only that, but as is traditional with Label Fandango releases the AA-side shows a more reflective side of the band, as 'Grow Your Own' revels in a gloriously sun-dappled '60s glow.
