Send your suggestions to: charlie@roguemusic.co.uk or write them in the comments box below.

THE RULES: Candidates must be a currently-existing band or music artist with at least one member residing in and around the North Herts area (that is Stevenage, Letchworth, Hitchin, Welwyn, St.Albans, Baldock, Knebworth etc). Don’t worry too much about locale (we will accept St. Albans and Hatfield bands for example), but the poll organisers reserve the right to reject candidates who may not exist anymore or do not have enough of a local presence.

BUSINESSES: We’re also looking for sponsorship in the form of prize donations which bands might find useful… So if you would like to sponsor the poll, please let us know. We’re looking for anything from promo material, musical instruments, studio time even food and drink! In return we’ll help promote your business in the run up to the Xmas party.

  1. I nominate Mister Stuart O’Connor. The epitome of the hard working musician, he has stubbornly refused to rely on anything other than his talent and determination to get his music to as many people as possible. He’s sold almost 6000 records and he’s never been signed. A true inspiration and a reminder that while the entire industry might be fast disappearing up it’s own arse, there is still an awful lot to be said for the DIY ethos and good old fashioned hard work.

    Stuart’s currently half-way through a self-funded tour of Japan, New Zealand and Australia – and is keeping a really cool tour diary at http://www.stuartoconnor.com

    We’re lucky to have a tonne of great acts come from our area, but I think Stuart’s hard-touring and one-man-against-all attitude makes him my nomination.

  2. I think the smoking hearts have gone through a lot this year. Their first album did really well and they were just progressing press-wise, which was really exciting. To see a local band that had been around for so long, finally reaping the rewards of their hard work is just as rewarding for their fans. Hearing that only after a few months they’ve found a new singer and written a lot more material makes me even more excitable! When they play, it feels more like a party than a gig and plus, they’re all really gorgeous and lovely- that helps.

  3. I vote for aghast because every time they put on a show its just a riot from start to finish. They bring life to the local scene. I know the guitarist is from Camden (i spoke to him outside club 85 after their show and hes actually mental) but does that make them a local band? i dont really like thrash metal (more like system of a down and tool really) but their music is so powerful and its melodic too. The drummer is like a machine gun and ive never heard a kick drum go so fast in my life and ive seen Slayer live!
