Working for a Nuclear Free City Biography

Working for a Nuclear Free City ("WFANFC") is an English music band from Manchester, England.

Original members Phil Kay ("production" and keyboard) and Gary McClure (guitar) formed as a studio entity in 1999; WFANFC began performing live in 2004, after adding drummer Jon Kay and bassist Ed Hulme to the group.

Having previously released material in the United Kingdom, its debut American release, "Businessmen & Ghosts", came out in November 2007. The band cites a wide array of influences, including artists as disparate as Bill Evans (American jazz pianist), Devo (American new wave group), The Grateful Dead (American rock band), and The Chemical Brothers (British electronic group). WFANFC's sound has been described as "a flawless lucid-dream trip through a thousand fantastical influences" and "as fresh as morning rain on Piccadilly Gardens". Regarding their importance, major media outlets such as the BBC have stated: "it's the way that [WFANFC and The Longcut, another British music group] have distilled Manchester's history into an exciting future brew that makes them important."

WFANFC's releases have won them praise from a variety of media outlets, including Spin (magazine), the BBC, Stylus Magazine, and Citylife Magazine; its song "Rocket" was featured on National Public Radio in June 2007. The band has been known for their uniquely diverse style, ranging from Electronica to Shoegaze and Ambient.

The band performed on the Topman Unsigned Stage at the Carling Weekend's Leeds Festival in 2007, where they hinted in an interview as being unhappy with their current label.
