THE NIGHT & DAY SHOWCASE
THE GENTLE SCARS
The Gentle Scars are a Liverpool-based band inspired by the sound and attitude of New York bands like Suicide, Television, Velvets and the New York Dolls. The band are gaining a reputation as a ‘not to miss’ live act, with a set that includes ferocious fuzz guitars, VU-style droning keyboards, theremin and a charismatic frontman who never fails to enthral the audiences.
With a pedigree that includes bassist Martin Dempsey (from seminal Liverpool bands Yachts, It’s Immaterial, Pink Military) the Scars continue to evolve into an uncompromising, edgy feast for the senses.

“Sounds like a haunting version of the Doctor Who theme if it were written by Danny Elfman and directed by Tim Burton as a glam rock opera.” Backseat Mafia
