BBC Guernsey Unsigned Bands Links

Between 2006 and 2009, before the advent of BBC Introducing, I wrote regular reviews and features on bands in Guernsey for the BBC Guernsey website.

This is an archive to some of the articles, basically all the ones I’ve been able to find (though I think there are more), it includes gig reviews, photo galleries, album reviews and some more general features on Guernsey music – I’ve tried to divide it up so its a bit easier to navigate and find stuff.

If you have the URLs of any I’ve missed please let me know and I will add them in.

Any new articles and info on the BBC Introducing Guernsey monthly show will be added to the main blog.

(Some of the links seems to be being taken down so sorry if they go to dead links – when I get a chance I might resurrect some from my original notes).
