The Mechanicals Band

Award: Recording And Releasing Music (Do it Differently)

Year: 2020

Genre: Folk

Location: West Midlands


The Mechanicals are a five piece band inspired by poetry and prose, who set found words to new music.
Based in the midlands, their debut recording was a Shakespearean flavoured affair. They have gone on to explore other poets in their Miscellany #1 EP and are currently exploring the work of Philip Larkin through music and stage.

Help Musicians has been generous and supportive of our current project and their input will enable us to finish a project that we have been working on for the last 18 months that the current pandemic situation threatened to make us shelve. We are delighted that we will be able to produce the physical record of what we have been writing and refining alongside our stage show of the same name now, in time for both Larkin's home city's City of Culture status and the upcoming Larkin 100 celebrations.
