Reading & Leeds 28-30 August 2009  

Horse Guards Parade

Horse Guards Parade formed in the summer of 2008 and spent the autumn and winter writing and recording songs. Theirs is a campfire-friendly, yearning blend of country soul, with a touch of Wilco, Lamb Chop and more than a little Neil Young. March 2009 saw the band self-release their first EP which was enthusiastically received on 6 Music and Radio 2 and given a big thumbs up by Steve Lamacq.

This support helped Horse Guards Parade secure more gigs throughout Britain and also record a live radio session for BBC Introducing in Humberside. August saw the band play Big Chill festival, with more writing, recording, gigging still to come in 2009.
