Have your say

EAST London hipsters Spector are Sunderland-bound for their first Mackem show – and you could be there for free.

We’ve teamed up with the band, who play Independent, in Holmeside, on May 25, to give away four pairs of tickets to the show.

The five-piece, who perform melancholy pop, have been tipped for big things, so catch them in your home town while you can.

In 2010 frontman Fred Macpherson set about recruiting Christopher Burman (guitar), Thomas Shickle (bass), Jed Cullen (synth, guitar) and Danny Blandy (drums) to take his tracks out on to the bristling Dalston and Shoreditch live circuit.

The band instantly drew comparisons with everyone from The Killers and The Strokes, to Roxy Music and Ultravox after performing at a string of packed underground venues.

To be in with a chance of seeing them for free, answer this question: What’s the name of the band’s frontman.
