Rory and Ned Short Info

Rory and Ned Can Beat Your Dad Up
Rory and Ned are a rock and roll two piece (with a drummer) just trying to sweat up a storm and have a great time!

Blowing their lungs out and working their hips as often as a stage will accept their feet, in the year since they agreed to release the funk from their trunks they have been busier than flies trapped in a microwavable trash can.

Starting out in the sleepy flat lands of Suffolk, UK, Rory and Ned were speedily embraced in the loving arms of the fiercely alternative record label Antigen Records (www.antigenrecords.com), releasing a single of their song ‘Man Slag’ – which quickly sold out. With equal speed, their songs gained regular air play on local radio stations, including BBC Radio Suffolk, resulting in a live performance and interview on their BBC Introducing show.

Currently based in Liverpool (like the Beatles), Rory and Ned have been living off whatever fluid they can suck from stones off the street, and whatever insects they find crawling underneath them, all the while steadily building a hell-for-leather fan base thanks to gigging their elbows to the cartilage and jolly well making the most of life, sunshine, and the disco inferno.

With new full length album 'Fighting Music' released and under their arms, headlining gigs and regular UK and European tours, Rory and Ned are cooking up a storm, and you know what Momma? I think I smell a bun in the oven.

Louder Than War - "Rory and Ned sound so fresh, so damn urged - the roots of their music maybe the DNA of rock 'n' roll but this is their own modern interpretation - simple, raw, and brilliant...Ipswich may yet be forced to re-write its cultural credentials.

Grapevine Magazine - "It is the greatest. They are the greatest…This is the future and how all albums should be made sound from now on.”

Ipswich Star - "...peculiar blend of tender acoustic balladry and wanton fret-mangling amateurism....released their debut single last summer which sold out in two months...during BBC Suffolk Introducing end of year show was declared presenter Graeme Mac's favourite song of 2012.

Bido Lito - "Like two boys who have sneaked out on a school night...a refreshing and salubrious change from more austere performances by bands operating in the same genre...(rory and ned) gyrate and enunciate their anthems in a semi-synchronised, wild-eyed routine...well thought out guitar melodies...audacious and witty lyrics...two guys, two guitars (OK and a drummer) playing voracious rock and roll hits and having a great time with it.

Live Review Mangoneblog - "Joyfully careless acoustic garage rock, guaranteed to make you smile...They are the precise polar opposite of those boring fuckers who sit in their bedrooms uploading videos to YouTube with titles like 'Sweep-Picked Arpeggio String Skipping Exercises , part 9....”
