There are at least two artists sharing the name The Attic Project: 1) The Attic Project is the pseudonym for a 19 year old's musical project. Based in Gus Nisbet Manchester/Bristol/Bath, Britain (UK) 2) The Attic Project were a four piece punk/ reggae band from Leeds that formed in early 2004 by CJ Pote (guitar), Andrew Pote (drums) and Mike Akers (vocals), as a continuation of their punk rock band Attic, who were popular on the North Yorkshire gig scene at the beginning of the decade. New member Andy Walton came in on bass guitar, leaving former bassist/ vocalist Mike to concentrate on vocals. In the two years since their formation The Attic Project quickly built up a following on the Leeds scene, and secured endorsement from Sebor Absinth. (The most prominent absinth dealer and importer in the UK). From there, the band embarked on a whirlwind UK tour in CJ’s old Volvo, financed entirely by themselves. The band went into the studio with Led Zeppelin engineer Stuart Epps to produce their debut EP How’s My Driving?, a five track compilation that was released in March 2006, at a gig organised by Leeds City Council as part of the bands prize for winning the Leeds Bright Young Things competition. The EP was well received, and helped the band secure the opening slot on Ska Saturday at Badfest 2006, the punk and ska festival founded by Buster Bloodvessel of Bad Manners infamy.
