Hull band Crucibles record at BBC Maida Vale studios

The legendary BBC Maida Vale Studios has just celebrated its 75th year.

It's played host to the likes of the Beatles, The Strokes, Kings of Leon and many more.

Well, this weekend Hull band Crucibles have been chosen to record a BBC Introducing session at Maida Vale.

The band blew us away at the end of January when they did a live session for Raw Talent Introducing.

We put their names forward to the BBC crew in London and were delighted when they were chosen, along with 12 other bands from around the country, to make the trip to Maida Vale.

Limbering up for time in this prestigious studio are: Greg Ullyard (vocal/guitar), Chris Hardy (bass), Chris Marsay (guitar), Nat Lawson (drums) and Bill Kirby (keyboard). They've all been associated with a variety of local bands: Kill Surf City, The Holy Orders, The Morphines, Top Gun, and City Ghosts to name a few....

When Crucibles were in our Hull studios a couple of weeks ago, they told Alan Raw that they were: "just mates playing rock" and that they had "no real plans for the future". They also revealed that they had not actually got another gig planned.

The Maida Vale recording session has come like a bolt out of the blue for them

In a place that has played host to acts like David Bowie, Led Zeppelin and Jimi Hendrix, it is bound to be an incredible experience

We will of course bring you photos and audio interviews of the session straight after the event.

You will also be able to hear the Crucibles at Maida Vale very soon on BBC Raw Talent Introducing, BBC Radio Humberside Sundays from 8pm.
