On the June 2014 edition of BBC Introducing Guernsey we had a live session from Ukuladeez and heard from young band Francisco as they gear up for the release of their debut EP.

Over the past three years Ukuladeez have gone from being something of a one-off novelty act into something a little more serious – if still very much based on having a good time. I spoke to them shortly before the launch of their debut album and they told me how they went from an unrehearsed band opening the Vale Earth Fair to be being invited to play for the recent British Irish Council meeting in Guernsey.

Francisco also joined me in the studio and told me what its like being a young band in Guernsey and the issues that face them in finding places to play as well as what their plans are for the future after their EP comes out on July 12th.

You can listen to the show until Saturday 5th July at 8 o’clock through the BBC iPlayer by clicking here.
