INDIE/grunge outfit The Fenders are hoping to hit the big time after landing a place in the regional finals of the Live and Unsigned band search.

Frontman Luke Cable, of Beckton,(vocals, lead and rhythm guitar), bass player Bob Haydon and his drummer son Paul, of Poplar, impressed the judges with their song, Born a Gambling Man, written by Luke.

The former Langdon School, East Ham, pupil said: "We've been performing together for about two years. At first we were mostly a covers band, playing at venues around east London, but more recently we've started doing our own, original stuff.

"We play at The Liquor Inn, Devons Road, Bow, and The Bridge House, Bidder Street, Canning Town."
