ALLIANZ MUSICAL INSURANCE PROVIDING A PLATFORM FOR THE NEXT GENERATION


At Allianz Musical Insurance we are avid supporters of musicians and believe it’s important to give upcoming acts an avenue to get the recognition they deserve.


As the largest musical insurer in the UK, our role is to make sure you’re onstage to do what you do best. But we’re not just about protecting your instruments if they are lost, stolen or broken; we’re also devoted to developing the UK’s musicians of the future.


We work closely with a number of musical organisations, who focus on improving the range of opportunities available to young people interested in music. These organisations include Musicians’ Union, the International Guitar Foundation and the Music for Youth’s National Festival.


When it comes to insuring your instruments we are specialists – we understand the music industry and your specific needs. Our PowerPlay policy is specifically designed to cover all forms of ‘powered’ instruments, from electric guitars to synthesizers and digital production tools, as well as drum kits, making it the perfect cover for individual musicians, bands or DJs.

DEKKO


Formerly known as Cracking Owl Sanctuary, Dekko are a Scottish mathcore-inspired, post-harcore bunch. You probably know the drill – every instrument sounds rhythmic while the leads seem to spin webs around the driving motion. What’s especially good here though is the real melodic sense they have, not afraid to abandon the technical aspects for a real good sing (or shout). Apart from It’s Red, all the other tracks are instrumental demos, so they definitely have chops. Would like to hear more please. http://dekko.bandcamp.com


THE PALACE OF JUSTICE


Three lads making jangly indie. How sick are we of this? Lots. The Palace of Justice, though, write catchy little songs that seem to simultaneously drag their heels and catch alight. The simplicity of their chord progressions, lack of overdubbed leads or fancy tricks, means the song writing is fairly strong to begin with. Hourglass is the pick of the bunch, reminding us at PMP of our beloved Good Shoes circa 2006. If they can keep hitting winning melodies, and start drifting into braver territory, we’ll have a band worth listening to. http://thepalaceofjustice.bandcamp.com
