THIS year's annual Cambridge Band Competition, now two heats in, has already been a cracker with a fine range of talent delighting the audiences at the Junction.
Rock band Symbo, who many believe were an outside choice, deservedly won the first heat with a sterling performance, overcoming three acts including hotly tipped rockers The Vices.
Last week's heat saw The Alex Harris Band triumph. Harris, a much needed boost of pop, commerciality and catchiness in a scene often dominated by heavier rock bands, won the competition in 1999 and are seen as strong contenders to go all the way this year.
Today (Wednesday) St Ives hopefuls Plus Guest battle against arty noise-makers Mr Zed, retro rockers The Beards and the witty songwriting of Colonel Bastard. With audiences more than 300 for each event, this year has so far been nothing but a success.
