After winning a competition to have a video made of one of their songs, “Before I’m Gone For Good”, by the BBC, having 2 world number ones on the prestigious, worldwide distribution deals on a string of download sites. Appearing on local radio, TV and Sky, numerous local press articles and appearing at a whole bunch of top London venues; You would think Norwich band Hardly Mozart would be sitting back congratulating themselves. Not a bit of it! Instead they have reinvented themselves with a whole new exciting, unique brand of rock with a pop/punk edge (think The Only Ones meets Blink 182) and embarked on a mission to shake up the music scene. 
The result has been dramatic, Hardly Mozart signed publishing to Cringe Music and now have a release on Red Admiral Records for their new album.

Chris Ashman, boss of Red Admiral Records said,
“We are very excited to have discovered “Hardly Mozart”. It is rare to find a great band of real musicians who also write world-class songs and so ably perform them dynamically anywhere in total empathy with their audience. “The band’s first album with us “Whatever Happened To Jago?” is a stunning representation of cultured Pop punk at it’s best and shows the versatility of this band, presenting some absolutely serious contention for the charts, and ballads to die for. The majors dropped-off letting us find this band first, what are their A & R departments doing?  This is crazy”

Confidence in ther future success for the band has come from many quarters including the privilege of having Dave Greenslade as a guest on keyboards for the ballad “On My PC”

Labelled as the top unsigned band in the country the boys had been called Jago after the infatuation exposed for the TV weather girl (Its boy thing), but serious about their future, a unique name was required so,
It’s Hardly Mozart.

Around 500 fans packed into the Apollo in Harleston just before Christmas and another 450-crammed Wortwell in February to hear a preview of the “
Whatever Happened To Jago?” album, which will to propel Hardly Mozart onto an international stage.

There is a whole new powerful edge to the music.The driving guitars of Wayne Elvin and Yoy Wilkinson, fuelled by the explosive beat of the wonderful Danny Peck on drums is extremely infectious. Combine this with their already legendarysong writing ability, passion and purity of vocals from Matthew Mead, close harmonies from bass player Steve Renaut and you have an arm twitching, leg shaking, earth moving, ground breaking, rule changing mix that you will want to hear again and again. Hardly Mozart are due to appear on Sky TV on Propeller in June with more London dates including the Dublin Castle June 17th and are headlining an event at the Waterfront, Norwich on June 29th where they will be launching the new album for their local fans who have helped them on this journey.
