Taking inspiration from Foals, Bombay Bicycle club and Stereophonics, five-piece Whitburn outfit Mark Sharp & the Bicycle Thieves are the latest product from a thriving West Lothian music scene.
The rockers – well known for their energetic live show – have SOLD OUT every single headline gig to date, including King Tut’s Wah Wah Hut & The Garage G2 in Glasgow – upgraded due to ‘phenomenal demand’ after The Attic sold out in less than five hours – and a host of other venues across the country.
Festival slots have included TRNSMT Festival, TENEMENT TRAIL & EH6 Festival Leith whilst the band have enjoyed supporting The Snuts and The View frontman Kyle Falconer. Summer 2019 saw MS&TBT headline the second stage at Party at The Palace, before performing to more than 10,000 people over two nights at Edinburgh Summer Sessions, with Lewis Capaldi.
Their latest EP, ‘MS&TBT’ is the strongest yet, and features single ‘Tippy Toes’ – already their most streamed track. They continue to build an army of followers, with an increasing demand for live shows throughout the UK.
The band closed 2019 with a SOLD OUT Glasgow show at the 600-capacity Saint Luke’s & The Winged Ox before being named in Jim Gellatly’s 10 for 2020.
