Listen: No Scary Bears – ‘Late Reply’

By March 21, 2017 Listen, News, York

We have the great pleasure of giving you the official premiere for emerging North Yorkshire alt-rock standouts, No Scary Bears (featuring members of Hijak Oscar, Y Street Band and Idle Jack and the Big Sleep).


No Scary Bears is the brain child of Simon Himsworth, who’s demo versions of his songs have already seen success by being played on BBC Introducing. The ex We Could Be Astronauts guitarist and Idle Jack & The Big Sleep drummer now turned front man has teamed up with Dave Hartley (The Mothers, Van Der Neer, We Could Be Astronauts, Hijak Oscar) on drums, Robert Loxley Hughes (The Mothers, We Could Be Astronauts, Idle Jack & The Big Sleep) on guitar and Chris Bush (Beth McCarthy, Y Street Band) on bass.

The aim is simple, alternative guitar music inspired by the bands they love and you used to find on MTV before the arse fell out of commercial music.
