Float

Circa 1992

As a booking agent in London you¬†receive¬†many demos from artists or managers. I’ve mentioned here in other pages that many of these bands were just bread and butter acts to pay the rent – and others were bands you hoped you could make successful.

I came across a box of lps the other day and pulled out a EP by this band – Float. I even found the cassette tape that I used to book them some gigs at colleges in the UK. Float were another band I spent a short time with trying to make successful. I thought there music alone could get them gigs at some of the college and university venues – and it did (with a little persuasion). I don’t think I actually met the band or made it to a gig in fact (for whatever reason). I dug their music nonetheless and setup a tour in the UK. I have no idea what happened to them – but their music lives on in my collection.
