FOLLOWING their sold-out UK Tour, and with their Closure video playlisted on almost every Music Channel in the UK, 2011 was a great year for The Kut – fronted by former Blackpool-based guitarist and vocalist Maha.
The end of the year saw them filming their new video Mario in North London – wearing gas masks.
“It was a mad experience,” said Maha, whose parents once ran a hotel on Dickson Road and who was the guiding force behind former Blackpool band Substance, which won the Station Hotel’s Battle of the Bands contest in 1998, and took part in the Gazette’s Rock Quest the same year.
“The crowd looked so awesome. Everyone was wearing these Russian gas masks from WW2. It was a lot of fun.
“We are really excited to see how the video will turn out now, and to shoot the rest of the footage. We’ve been laying down some of the new material, and Mario is one of those tracks we love playing live.”
That‘s good news, too, for Criminal Records, with increased support for the band evident when their Love Hate Vampire Shotgun System Circus sold out across the UK in late summer.
The band will also have a Music Week feature as On the Radar for 2012, in this week’s edition and will be hosting their own show on NME TV later this month.
However, having only one single out so far, 2012 will be a make or break year for these three rock chicks.
