Local band Lost Generation are currently riding high in the Red Bull Bedroom Jam competition - but they need Derry’s help to win!
The annual music contest spans all of Ireland, with Lost Generation the only Derry band involved this year.
Gareth Johnston, Ruairi McGuigan, Conor McConnellogue and Mark O’Brien are all 17-years-old and pupils of St Columb’s College. Having entered their online video, the public are then urged to rate each band - and Lost Generation have held their position in the Top Five! A band is chosen every seven days, depending on the ‘buzz’ they generate - so get rating, Derry! Prizes include recording studio time and slots at Irish summer festivals.
Gareth Johnston, drummer with the band, says they’ve been “overwhelmed” by the support they’ve received so far.
“To vote simply listen to the song on the website, rate it 5 stars, like it and leave a comment if you are on facebook (facebook.com/lostgenerationofficial) it only takes a minute and it would be a massive help to all of us!”
