2.3 have a special place in the history of Sheffield music. They were the first Sheffield new wave band to release a single, the Double A Side ‘All Time Low/Where to Now?’ which was released in February 1978 on the influential Fast Product indie label. They were praised for their hard hitting but melodic, political yet often witty songs reflecting on life in the late 1970s as the noise of the Punk Rock explosion died away in the distance and everybody was wondering what would come next. Tony Parsons even made them NME Single of the Week.
2.3 have recently been back in the studio with Human League and Heaven 17 founder Martyn Ware at the controls who includes production credits for Tina Turner and Terence Trent D’Arby on his CV.
2.3 will release an EP on Native Records on 13 October 2017. Their first release in 39 years.
2.3 EP Features new tracks 'Chelsea Girls', 'Excellent', and ‘The 95’ a punk blues rocker about the media manipulation around Orgreave and the Hillsboro’ tragedy.
It’s great to have them back
