“Kaiden Nolan has put together a filthy rock n roll quartet – they play ramshackle Libertine-esque rock n roll, reminding us of early Beatles with their good looks and swagger” – Louder Than War (50 Bands for 2019).


Formed in just late 2017 and inspired by the 70s punk of The Clash/The Buzzcocks and the early noughties guitar revival led by The Strokes and The Libertines, Scuttlers played their first shows in early 2018. The band formed after previously solo acoustic artist Kaiden Nolan decided to form the band with life-long friend and cousin Liam Cleere, who then enlisted school friends Jack Phillips and Tom Ogg. They’ve since released their debut EP ‘We Are Scuttlers’, headlined Manchester shows at Jimmy’s and Night People, and blown away audiences at Neighbourhood and Dot2Dot Festivals. The young band (all between the ages of 19 & 21) will follow their debut single with new tour and festival dates in the summer.

About Louise Swift

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
