Well, what can you say about The Gents that hasn't been said before? Starting off their music career as far back as 1980, they cut their teeth so to speak, in the working men's clubs of South and West Yorkshire and the North-east of England.
This was a hard slog as they had to play to a mixed audience, but over those early years they made a name for themselves as they stood out from the rest of the acts on that circuit, playing original and also mighty fine and catchy mod-inspired amongst the covers required by the clubs.
