Sucka are a fast paced three-piece rock band with a punk edge who exploded from the local scene of Aldershot (Hundred Reasons, Vex Red, Reuben) in 2001. The band consists of brothers Craig (21) and Ashley (18) on Guitar and Drums and newcomer Ben (19) on Bass. The band formed in Late 2001 with Craig on Guitar and vocals, Ashley on Drums and Craig’s college friend James on Bass. Sadly James left in early 2004 but was replaced by a close friend of the bands Ben. Suckas’ main aim when formed was to play as much as possible to anyone who would listen and as a result have played all over the country supporting bands such as the ‘UK Subs’, [spunge],’Caffeine’, ‘Mr. Zippy’, ‘Adequate seven’, ‘uncle brian’ ‘phinius gage’ and ‘the Misnomers’ Notching up over 100 live shows. 2004 saw the band hit the road on two self financed national tours playing dates right across the country from southampton to cumbria promoting their self released single ‘tell me its ok’, which entered the top 10 on soundclick.com’s alternative chart. They have also appeared on various compilation cd’s including the recent fanrborough groove 10, and recently performed on fm 96.4 the eagles acoustic session. A Scottish tour and second single are planned for 2005. The bands musical influence ranges from ‘Pennywise’ to the ‘Sex Pistols’ and ‘Ramones’ a heavy sound with stripped down raw guitar and melodic singing, their energetic live performances and cd releases have given the band encouraging reviews from local papers, fanzines and Websites and local radio stations.
