Glasgow Group Snapped Up

One of the hottest unsigned acts in the UK, Dananananaykroyd, are set to join the big boys after signing a deal with cult imprint Best Before Records.

The band rose to prominence on the back of an astonishing live show that writhes and seethes with a manic energy. Using twin drummers, Dananananaykroyd are like the evil cousin of Adam Ant - blending DC Hardcore riffs with a shrewd pop sensibility. Debut single "Totally Bone" was released to great acclaim on Moshi Moshi, with an EP "Sisy hits" released earlier this year.

The band signed the contracts at notorious Glasgow boozer Nice N Sleazy, home of many of their early gigs. Heading to Southern Studios soon to record their debut album with Grammy-nominated producer Machine, the band also have the small matter of a wedding to attend - bassist Laura is engaged to The Futureheads' Barry Hyde.

Dananananaykroyd are set to release their debut album later in the year.
