Band finish second in Liverpool Rocks!
by Tom Martin

YOUNG musicians from Crosby played their way to second place after they took part in the final of the Liverpool Rocks! Battle of the Bands competition.

The four youngsters, who call themselves The Basement Effect, won their first heat round in January when it first started with 40 other bands.

The Merchant Taylor's Boys' School pupils wowed judges during this phase and were selected to face off against three other groups in the grand final which took place recently in Liverpool.

They finished runners up, behind The Ambition, but were thankful for the experience in taking part.

The band are made up of Sam Jones, vocals and lead guitar, Harry Maitland, drums and vocal, Freddie Johnson, rhythm guitar and Ben Truman, bass guitar, who play punk and rock music.

The Basement Effect formed during music classes at the Crosby school and have been performing together now for four years, in between their studies and exams.

They are now focusing more time on writing their own music and songs, with their first single ‘Just Like You' getting 4,022 hits on YouTube.
