‘Better Live Than Never’ E.P.

“The Immediate could conceivably be the Welsh R.E.M.”
Louder Than War, 8/10 (review for Manbuoy)

"Manbuoy is an unexpected power pop revelation."
From The Margins

“… modern mod, up-to-date retro…”

“Put simply, this is really high level indie-pop.”
The Book Of Lies

“A stomping triumph.”
Music Is My Radar

For fans of: Teenage Fanclub, Husker Du, The Cure, The Jam, Guided By Voices.

We are The Immediate, a three-piece band from Mold in north Wales. We have released an album, three EP’s and a single, receiving airplay and support from Tom Robinson on BBC 6Music, BBC Introducing, and from a host of excellent independent radio shows and blogs (Louder Than War, Sweeping The Nation, The Breakdown, Music Is My Radar).

Hot on the heels of the release of our critically acclaimed debut album ‘Manbuoy’, we’re releasing a very limited edition CD (50 copies) recorded at the album launch gig in Telford’s Warehouse, Chester on Friday 16th June 2017.

It’s a raw and frenetic memento of a great night in the venue that has played host to us more frequently than any other, over the years.

Four of the six songs are live versions of tracks from the debut album, the other two songs - ‘Don’t Give Up’ and ‘The Dreamers’ - are new and rawer incarnations of two of our most enduring songs. These are heavier interpretations of both songs, far less layered and produced than their initial incarnations, and - we feel - all the better for it.

‘Better Live Than Never’ was recorded and mixed by Sebastien Allemand. 

Saturday 29th July Wrexfest, Wrexham
Thursday 24th August Alexanders, Chester

The Immediate Mold, UK

The Immediate are a three-piece indie / power pop band from Mold in north Wales.

We’re unfashionably passionate about guitars, love and truth. The songs on the EP are a clarion call of defiance in the face of poverty, breakdown and loneliness. They’re songs of experience that fight tooth and nail to cling on to innocence and hope. ... more
