About My Side of the Mountain

Jamie, James and Gavin - My Side of the Mountain

This is who we are...

Three friends making music from whatever we find lying around. We create our sounds
somewhere in the hills of Derbyshire – but we’re not very easy to find.

The years of waiting to grow extra limbs to rattle our bedroom pots and pans on stage never
quite paid off. So now we just concentrate on what we do best – writing, recording and releasing songs.

In our five years of hiking around we’ve reached some pretty impressive peaks. Airplay on Radio 1,
6 Music and XFM; TV apperances on Channel M and the BBC Parliament Show (yes indeed); and gigs at
Sounds From the Other City, In the City and everywhere inbetween. We’ve not been too shabby.

We’ve released three mighty fine CD’s (a fourth is on the way) – with rave reviews from the likes of the BBC,
Planet Sound and Manchestermusic.co.uk. Some of our choice cuts have also appeared on the finest independent
compilations albums around, put together by the likes of Switchflicker, Cloud Sounds and PopCult.

We even spent a few months as Magic Arm’s backing band - reaching the giddy heights of the BBC Introducing
stage at Glastonbury, not to mention a live session on Marc Riley’s 6 Music show.

We don’t know what’s coming next – or how long it will take. We just add a little sprinkling
of mountain dust, sit back and let the magic happen.
