The C33s are an alternative punk/rock trio from the North West of England consisting of Judy Jones (drums, vocals), Cav Green (guitar, vocals) and Ste Phillips (bass). Sounding like they’ve just stepped out of CBGB‘s in the late 70’s, they also incorporate elements of surf, garage and a Cramps– style tribal approach to their distinctive sound.
Since July 2018’s introductory EP 48 Hours at Neon Palms and their live debut in October (Jimmy’s, Manchester), The C33s music has had an astounding effect. They’ve played some landmark venues and events (including tour dates with CABBAGE, King Tuts), the band have also picked up a record deal with These Bloody Thieves Records and signed with world-renowned X-Ray Touring.
Their March ’19 debut single Manic Depression earned amazing reactions and wide radio play including BBC Radio 1 (Huw Stevenson), BBC Radio 6 (Chris Hawkins), XS Manchester (Mike Joyce) and Amazing Radio (Jim Gellatly). Championed by BBC Introducing Manchester (Michelle Hussey & Natalie-Eve Williams) and Shell Zenner, the band have a real heat surrounding them.
“If Quentin Tarantino invented a band to write tunes for his future films they would be called The C33s. One of the best debuts this year for me.” (Louder Than War).
“The C33s refresh the parts other bands cannot reach! Cav, Judy and Ste are definitely one of the most exciting and talented garage punk combos on the planet.” (Northern Jon)
“A dead exciting new band from Manchester. Garagey, gritty & will leave a scar on your mind. The future is bright. The future is The C33s.” (Chris Hawkins, BBC 6 Music).
