Southend Goth rock sensations The Horrors stopped by Fives Records in Leigh to sign copies of their new single. The band released the single Gloves on Monday and about 40 fans stopped by the music store in the Broadway to have their copies signed. Manager of Fives Records, Sandra Bennett, said the Horrors label Universal got in touch with her to
organise the event, she said: "They were quite keen to promote independent music
stores rather than just the big chains, we break a lot of local bands because we
stock their music here"
The Horrors were a very nice bunch and stayed for around an hour.They made time
for everybody and were really nice. The five-piece band have already made the front
cover of NME andappeared on Channel 4 show Popworld.
