THEY have already gone down a storm at two regional car rallies - and now 'The Spoils' are hoping for their share of the music limelight in Wirral.

The group of 15 to 17-year-olds, which features Rob Weaver on guitar and vocals, Liam Rogers (drums) and brothers Mark and Andy Halligan (guitar, vocals and bass) formed in 2002 and rehearse at the Bridge Inn, Port Sunlight.

The Wirral band has performed many times locally, but their biggest gigs, to-date, have been at car rallies in Northampton and Rawcliffe, near Blackpool, which the group says was well received by the audience.

Their repertoire of music from the '50s onwards reflects the many influences and includes songs by The Who, Stray Cats, The Beatles, Oasis, The Coral and Travis. Not content to rely on covers to get them through, the boys have also written their own material, which includes 'Overlooking You,' 'I Can't Wait,' 'Resist Temptation' and 'Why Did You Let Me Go?'

Because they are full-time students, the band fit rehearsals and shows around their studies. They are keen to play whenever the opportunity arises.

If you would like to book the boys for a show and would like more information, visit their website at or e-mail: or phone Mark on 327-1092.
