Reverend and the Makers
A Sheffield contemporary of Arctic Monkeys, Reverend & The Makers‘ leader Jon McClure is something of an acquired music taste. On one hand he has an ever-loyal army of supporters at his gigs; on the other – thanks in large part to a series of outspoken interviews – many music fans think he’s a berk.
The band's debut album The State of Things (2007) helped them gain success in Britain, as well as spawning UK Top 10 single "Heavyweight Champion of the World". Their latest album, Mirrors, was released in October 2015.
