Nine Dart Finish released their debut album, ‘The Misadventures of…’ this summer. Recorded and produced, at Magic Garden Studios in Wolverhampton, by the legendary Gavin Monaghan (Editors, The Twang, Ocean Colour Scene). So far, the band have released two tracks from the album, which have had a great response:

Way Out Radio – “Now this is just astonishing – I am absolutely gob smacked at what I’m hearing! … Everything is just perfect! … The songs composition, the bands musicianship & the unlikely mix of angst & contentment! … This number/band is/are just superb – -added to playlist.

“Rock NA Radio show – “This Nine Dart Finish tune is fantastic…"

Both ‘Kicking & Screaming’ and ‘Charlie Bonkers’ have recently been played on several radio stations, including: BBC Radio WM, TalkRadio, Switch 107.5FM, Salford FM, Bishop FM, Chorley FM, Shoreditch Radio,,, Rock NA Radio, Express FM, Radio Wigwam, Soundlab Radio, Dunoon Radio, Audio Graffiti, The James Whale Radio Show, Choice Radio Worcester, Whythenshawe FM, Control Radio, Oban FM, Way Out Radio, Rock NA Radio, Tameside Radio, Punky Radio, Get Ready to Rock Radio and Vixen 101.

Forthcoming live date : Thursday 29th November - The Sunflower Lounge, Birmingham.

Nine Dart Finish are;

Daz Yardley – Bass Guitar and lead vocals.

Daz, as the lead vocalist and front-man of the band, has been playing and writing songs for years. As a former member of ‘Coffeeshop’, who were signed to a subsidiary of Geffen, Daz has music oozing from every pore. His record collection is famed for its diversity, ranging from earlier classics like Queen and Ian Dury to 90’s hits from Weezer and Supergrass. A night out with Daz and the lads isn’t considered a success unless it ends with a rousing rendition of Unchained Melody complete with vocal harmonies.

Christopher Mobbs – Guitar and backing vocals.

Christopher has a unique guitar style, influenced by his love of Radiohead and Pink Floyd – a strange combination but one that produces its own special magic. Christopher began his musical adventure in a little know Birmingham band called Slow Rush, which also briefly included Andy as a guitarist, but it wasn’t long before Christopher was sharing a house with Daz and jamming with Andy, Daz and others. Around this time, the working name for the band was ‘whippet’s face’, or possibly ‘Whip its face’, nobody was quite sure but over time the members changed, Andy wandered off (no-one quite knows what he was up to, he still doesn’t know) and eventually Nine Dart Finish was born.

Andy Proudman – Drums and Percussion.

Andy has been around the instruments a fair bit, starting out on drums, meandering onto Bass guitar, wandering off whimsically with a guitar, before finally realising his one true love is hitting things with sticks. Andy has played in Grunge, Nu-metal, Punk, Indie and AOR bands, and was signed to UKNew Sounds while a member of ‘Jodi Lee Parker’. He also DJs at Drum and Bass events and likes to write electro-folk, a genre he invented all by himself (only time will tell if electro-folk proves popular). Over time Andy has come to realise that he just likes music, preferably music with a banging beat, and Daz and Christopher love banging beats… a match made in heaven. Andy can mostly be found, when he isn’t wandering off, looking for snacks and daydreaming about jelly sweets.
