In July 1990 Kill Your Television shot straight to #1 in the Indie singles chart and sent Ned’s Atomic Dustbin on a collision course with the pop charts.
Being their ‘cross-over’ single, Kill Your Television the song, the slogan, the t-shirt and the ‘get off your backside and do something’ sentiment still stand as the deepest footprint that the band have left on the indie rock planet and 25 years later the band (all 5 original members) are looking to cement the legacy with their annual Kill Your Television Festival.
A hugely successful inaugural KYTV Festival was held in December 2015 at the band’s spiritual hometown venue – Wolverhampton Civic Hall, scene of many of their end-of-year home-coming shows attended historically by audiences from across the globe; seekers of that magical atmosphere that the venue evokes for the fans of Ned. Now the band is taking the festival on the road to another favourite venue of theirs – Manchester Academy.
Neds are keen to establish KYTV Festival as their very own annual self-curated inimitable indie-rock celebration by boasting unusual bills with more than the occasional surprise package. This year’s show in Manchester will be no exception with the first announced support none other than Ferocious Dog, a full-on six-piece that encompass folk infused with rock, reggae and Celtic vibrations. In 2015 the band sold out Rock City in Nottingham in advance – an historic moment, it being the first time in the 35-year history of this auspicious venue that an unsigned band has achieved this feat.
On Monday 29th February at 12 noon Neds will announce their very special guests – expect a huge coup! More great bands and DJs will be announced in due course too...
