Based in Manchester and serving up great fab slabs of rock and breakbeat, thebandwithnoname was launched in 2002 by youth evangelism organisation Innervation.
Innervation was the brainchild of the founders of the World Wide Message Tribe. They’ve continued to bring the noise, and the Word, to venues big and small ever since Their mission started in Manchester but has taken them around the world, having toured Europe and the USA.
They’ve recorded three albums to boot, with the latest – 2007’s Dying To Be There – being awarded a perfect 10 by Cross Rhythms magazine. TBWNN factoid 1: A few years back the band ran a poll via their website and 80% voted in favour of them keeping their name: there can be few bands run so democratically. TBWNN factoid 2: It takes longer to say TBWNN that it does to say thebandwithnoname.
tbwnn released their 4th album – The Best Of thebandwithnoname – the 4 Points, in the Spring this year. This will be their last ever performance at Greenbelt as their final ever gig will be at Manchester Apollo on 5th September 2010.
