The Scarlet Rays Biography
The Scarlet Rays were formed five years ago by Alex Turner and TIV (Stephen Whitaker). We have a dance-rock sound that blends what we like best about British rock & roll music. We recorded our first set of tracks across 2004-05 and were featured on 'Sound on Sound' magazine's cover DVD in Nov 05. We played the Inspiration night at Zumbar, Manchester in the same month. In 2007 we played The Love Apple in Bradford.
The band is no longer together, though TIV and Alex still work on new material.
