Little Man Tate + The Reverend And The Makers

Little Man Tate are a four-piece indie band from Sheffield, England. The band consist of Jon Windle (vocals + guitar), Maz (guitar), Ben Surtees (bass), Dan Fields (drums). Their witty and sexual lyrics have gained them an increasingly growing fan base, mainly through Internet forums and message boards, particularly on forums of other Sheffield-based bands such as Arctic Monkeys. In March 2006 they signed to Virgin's V2 Records label. On The 28th August 2006 they released their second single "House Party At Boothy's" a tribute to the best house parties in Sheffield held by close friend Boothy. The track entered the top 40 at number 29.

It will be released in both standard CD version, plus Limited Edition CD/DVD version, and a Limited Edition heavy yellow vinyl of which there will only be 1000 copies.

Reverend And The Makers are yet another band from Sheffield. They are lead singer Jon McClure and a mix of friends and musical colleagues. Alex Turner (Arctic Monkeys lead singer) features in ‘The Machine’ and Tim Hampton (Bromheads Jacket lead singer) features in ‘Bandits’. Jon McClure’s brother Chris was featured on the cover of the Arctic Monkeys album, and Jon was even in a band with Turner, called ‘Judan Suki’.

It is rumoured that Jon McClure wrote Fake Tales Of San Francisco and A Certain Romance, songs included on the record-breaking Arctic Monkeys album Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not, after Jon and Arctic Monkeys singer and songwriter Alex Turner were band mates in Judan Suki. This has been denied, but it is known that McClure has written pages on the Arctic Monkeys website for them, including the "Who" section, which is signed as "Rev Jon Rarsclart" - one of his many pseudonyms.
