Liverpool has one of the richest music scenes in the UK. Home of The Beatles, Echo & The Bunnymen, Frankie Goes To Hollywood, Dead or Alive…the list goes on. One of the more recent additions to the list of acclaimed Liverpool acts is Courting.  

The band’s 2021 EP was heavily praised for its rebellious and political tone, along with its fresh post-punk sound, adding some sarcasm and humour to a genre that can, at times, be very serious. Fan-favourite track, Crass, is a stand-out and a must see live, featuring an ever growing instrumental, building its drum-led energy, placing on an already iconic line about potentially spending the evening with Kanye West.  

The band’s debut album, Guitar Music, was released in September, and features some very art-punk heavy tracks, such as the noisy and brash Tennis, which will go down a storm at Stockton’s KU Bar on Saturday 22nd October.  

Joining them will London’s UGLY, whose latest track I’m Happy You’re Here is a slow meandering song that explores folk sounding guitars, until exploding into a full-on indie rock banger within the last stretch.  

Courting and UGLY play KU Bar, Stockton on Saturday 22nd October.
