The Shedmen have been around for an awfully long time. They first came together as a 5-piece in 92, and graced the pubs and clubs of the Isle of Man until their split in late 94, plating their quirky nostalgic tributes to late 1970ís punk and new wave bands. In their time they have murdered classics from The Clash, The Jam, The Buzzcocks, The Sex Pistols and The Undertones

They re-formed in 2003 as a 4-piece, (original line-up minus Paul Johnson) and gigged regularly until long time bass player, Mick Prater emigrated to New Zealand in late 2004.

Unperturbed, the original 3, ( Barry Williams on vocals, Stewie Mills on guitar and Sean Plowman on drums) drafted in Jimmy Mills on bass, and have re-invented themselves as a quirky, nostalgic, tribute 1970ís punk

The Plowman digs it - pace Dylan

band that also cover more modern punk material, such as Franz Ferdinand, Blink 182, Green Day and Busted. The Shedmen say that they are delighted to be part of Bushey's Big Wheel Blues Festival, and are honoured to host the Indie tent at the Laxey Football Club venue on Glen Road †
