There's no point being an occasional amateur, if you're going to be a novice you might as well be committed. Luckily the Full Time Rookies are just that - a freshly formed and energetic covers band brand spanking new to this year's The Y Factor. From The Chilis to Arctic Monkeys, the five pack their brittle melodies tightly into a neat alt-indie package with the potential to be a real contender as the competition heats up. Although, at the rate they're expanding, it doesn't look like these guys'll be rookies for much longer!
Forthcoming: Taking a break from gigging to get some originals recorded.
Guilty pleasure: Rick Astley!!!
