Band says ‘we are not The Beatles’
A new student beat band feared being classed as Boston’s Beatles – and were keen to work hard to develop their own original sound.
"We are not trying to copy anyone," said vocalist David White. "What we want to do is develop a style of our own."
David and his friends had been playing on and off for a year but had only been 'taking things seriously' for three months – with bookings to play at local youth clubs.
The lads said they didn't want to try to aim too high – mainly because they were limited due to their school work.
"It's mainly young people of our own age that we plan to cater for," added David.
Despite sometimes playing 'She Loves You' – the group said they had not fallen for The Beatles trend and had vowed to avoid floppy haircuts and 'with it' clothes.
