Muff’s Luke McLaughlin is part of an up and coming Brit Pop/Mod band based in London. Luke hails from Wheatfield Muff and is currently based with the group in London. The Turning consist of Luke McLaughlin (Vocals/Rhythm Guitar), David Bardon (Lead Guitar), Louis Gilbert (Bass), Ruben Kenton-Harris (Drums) and are heavily influenced by bands from all decades such as The Beatles,The Kinks,The Doors, The Jam, The Who, Oasis and many more.

They have a new single “Magazine Street” coming out June 21st and will be gigging around the UK throughout the summer with 2 more singles coming out later this year – one in August and another in October! The single was written by Luke and is clearly about the street in Derry!

The Turning played in The Gweedore bar last Friday night and rave reviews have been flooding in over the past few days. I was fortunate to catch a recording online of the gig and it was excellent. Their manager Robert Stephenson has high hopes for them and they really do sound like one to watch.

They return to play in Derry again this coming August so I will certainly be heading to have a listen. You can catch recordings of them on YouTube and believe me you won’t be disappointed.
