About

The Starkins hail from the Dearne Valley Sheffield and comprise brothers Matt Elliss (guitar), and Jo Elliss (drums), together with Will Campbell (bass) and Andy Daniels (vocals).

Following many years of decline, the region is now devoid of its coal mines, steel works and single digit electro pop dance meisters. Roll on thirty five years, and whilst the refrains from the youth may still reverberate to cries of “No Future”, it does so with a cheeky grin, a 24 bit resolution rate and in three part harmonies.

Rather than dwell on dank, dreary grey skies, The Starkins’ manifesto is simple - roll back the carpet and insanely bounce up and down to a melody packed, sweaty racket and I promise you, feeling good never felt this good.

Attracted through a shared and profound interest in “larking about” and a blatant, youthful enthusiasm for shout-a-long choruses, the winter of 2011 saw the band’s first live venture.

To date the band have performed over a hundred dates, unsettling and astounding many a clientèle in the region’s fading working men’s clubs (women allowed). “Firearms are not permitted on these premises by order of the committee” – wise words indeed.

‘Roundabout’ - their first release, showcases their raucous and dervishly delicious line of attack, consistently described as infectious by reviewers, their international social media fan base forewarns of a full blown pandemic.
