The Erin Bardwell Collective
LIVE DATES 2013
New album OUT NOW!
A live reggae/rocksteady band on Pop-A-Top Records. An organ driven early boss reggae style with male & female vocals. They play their own tunes with that late 60s/early 70s Trojan/Studio One sound. One of the very few bands in the UK at the moment focusing on this period. Established 2003 (studio) & 2004 (live). Currently a 5 to 6 piece line up with guests. They have supported / shared stages with Neville Staple, Dreadzone & Pama International. And have gigged all over the UK. In 2008 Neol Davies from The Selecter made his first special guest appearance with the band. This was repeated twice in 2010. See 'Events/Gigs' page for latest gig details.

They played a live radio session on the Tom Robinson BBC 6 Music show on 22nd April 2008. Three tunes were performed - Slaving For Bread, Spray It & Burn It, and Guns, Bombs & Madness, and an interview with Erin took place. Slaving For Bread and Guns, Bombs & Madness were repeated on Tom Robinsons 'Introducing' show in June 2008. Studio recordings of all three tracks can be found within the back catalogue.
Airplay on BBC 6 Music started for the band back in 2006 when Phill Jupitus played the Copenhagen track from their Volume 2 CD on his breakfast show. More airplay followed in 2008 on 6 Music with Tom Robinson playing the Fry Up single and Gideon Coe playing the Evaporator track from their Volume 3 album. Steve Lamacq then picked up on the band in 2011 by playing the Moody Man single on his Radio 6 Show & his Radio 2 show. In 2012 he continued his support for the group by playing selected tracks from the new Bringing The Hope album (inc. the tunes Time On Our Side & The Doctor Said)
The new album BRINGING THE HOPE has also gained airplay on Newport City Radio (the tracks Freedom Train, Time On Our Side, and Feeling The Heat have been spun by DJ Lee J on The Big Shot Sound System), and the Dublin Near FM Ska Patrol show (the tunes Hungry Children & Freedom Train), and Swindon 105.5 Ring The Alarm show with Selector D-Bo (he has been featuring many tracks over the last few weeks inc. I'll Be Good To You, Freedom Train, Feeling The Heat and Bringing The Hope).
BBC Wiltshire Introducing also featured the new album on their show in October 2012 - they interviewed Erin and spun the tracks Bringing The Hope & Is This Love (Somehow) - presented by Marie Lennon & Will.
