A five-piece band from Margate is getting ready to play Ramsgate Music Hall on Saturday (October 8).
Squangey Bobbins perform authentic British Rock similar to Stereophonics, Catfish and the Bottlemen and Feeder. They will be supported at the gig by Adam Green and Striking Thirteen.
The band, made up of Lewis Colley, Steven Warrington, Samuel O’Neill , Jon Liversedge and
Oskars Petersons – with Claire Pitt Wigmore recently leaving the line-up – released their new single A Long Way Home at the end of September.
They have sold out shows at numerous local venues including the Tom Thumb Theatre, The Dugout and Elsewhere, as well as performing at events including the Rock, Dock & 12 Smoking Barrels Festival.
The band have played on the Scenic Stage at Dreamland, Ramsgate Music Hall, The Libertines’ Albion Rooms and supported artists such as Riskee and the Ridicule.
Their album ‘Electric Vinyl’ was picked up by HMV Thanet and was in the official HMV Recommends section. They also boast over 50,000 streams on Spotify and counting.
Squangey Bobbins was included on the compilation album Brits and Pieces 2, which reached number 52 in the official compilation chart. The project had support from the likes of Frank Turner, The Subways and Robert Carlyle.
The band’s work has been played on BBC radio and lead singer Lewis and guitarist/bassist Steve appeared on the song ‘Swimming In It’ with the modern folk legends Beans on Toast and Will Varley.

some “interesting” names there , trouble is i have never heard of any of them ?
Not quite sure that “Margate band plays in Ramsgate” is much of a news story.
I seem to recall you and your books being featured on this website. I didn’t think that was much of a news story, so how is this different?
For once, could you not just say nothing?
“Margate band releases CD” would be a news story, but surely several local bands “tour” Thanet every week?
But, why do you think you are somehow the arbiter of what is and isn’t a new story? I don’t think you releasing a book that 99.99% of the population is even remotely interested in is newsworthy, but I wouldn’t feel strongly enough about it to talk down someone else’s moment in the spotlight. What I’m saying is, for once, pipe down, Petey.

Supporting local musicians and local venues, part of the duty of a local news outlet, just as we support local businesses/ event groups/ schools etc etc instead of an endless round of Maccy D’s latest, Katie Price and Kerry Katona bilge or stories from the other end of the country
Let’s support local bands and let’s support local venues. Especially venues as good as RMH. It’s a gem of a place.
