Scooters Loose Change
Formed in Mid Wales in the summer of 2002 from a shared love of all things punk & ska, 3 Minute Warning boast a 4 piece line up of Billy (guitar & vocals), Harold (drums), Matt (bass) & Chuzz (keys & vocals). Soon after their formation they quickly established themselves throughout Mid Wales with their blistering live shows. With influences ranging from The Specials & Madness through to The Clash, Rancid & The Bouncing Souls, 3 Minute Warning's sound is centred on storming streetpunk ska with great shoutalong choruses & catchy keyboard melodies. After self releasing a debut CD EP, titled 'Eating Ain't Cheating', the band then had their track 'Faithless' included on a punk compilation released by Complete Control Music in 2004. After playing numerous shows with Smoke Like A Fish & Catch It Kebabs, the band caught the ear of Do The Dog Music & signed to the label in late 2005. 3 Minute Warning's debut full length album, titled 'Tramps Jackpot', was released in April 2006. The CD picked up excellent reviews from the International ska & punk press & lots of radio airplay, including several spins on Radio 1's flagship punk rock show, The Lock Up. Since the release of 'Tramps Jackpot' 3 Minute Warning have gigged extensively all across the UK & also further afield in Europe. Now with their latest release on Megalith Records, the band is going at it full swing, with tours opening for The Toasters and 'Scooters Loose Change' getting worldwide distribution.
