“We are pleased to announce that our fourth Wake Up Gig will take place on Sunday 1 October and be headlined by the hotly tipped CHILDCARE. For those of you that have been very close attention and are among might have seen our recent Facebook video advert (below) – well the soundtrack to that is indeed CHILDCARE.

We don’t think there is any band more appropriately named and with a story that perfectly matches the ethos of Wake Up Gigs than CHILDCARE and we were lucky enough to catch them at a packed show in Brighton back in May so we know what a treat you have to look forward to. When we spoke to front man and manny, Ed, he completely understood our idea and our message and we can’t wait for them to play for you before they head out on a full UK tour in November.

CHILDCARE started when Ed Cares, one of west London’s most in-demand male nannies, was overheard humming a song he had written, by Katie, aged six, who persuaded him to form a band. Josh, eight, boldly proclaimed: “You’re probably my second favourite artist after Katy Perry.” And so, after sourcing some neighbourhood musicians capable of living up to Josh’s heady billing — specifically Emma Topolski (bass), Rich Legate (guitar) and Glyn Daniels (drums) — Ed soon had an able band to perform with under the only logical moniker in the circumstances: CHILDCARE. Having honed their vivid and visceral live show on stages including Reading and Leeds festivals and now some of the land’s major concert venues, CHILDCARE have released three singles to date, ‘Omega Grey’, ‘Film Club’ and ‘Kiss?’
