The Electric Luddites create a shock with three in-session tracks

If ever a band looked and sounded exactly as you imagine from their name its The Electric Luddites. Watch them perform in-session.

What do you get if you cross rock, jazz and punk? Why, The Electric Luddites, of course.

A "mature five-piece rock band from Sheffield," The Electric Luddites say they "specialise in original songs with anti-establishment sentiments and left-leaning tendencies which they belt out with gusto."

Utilising a number of instruments from saxaphone through to synth and electronic drums, the band create a sound as interesting as their political leanings.

Despite The Electric Luddites "encompassing individual backgrounds in an amazingly wide variety of genres from folk and country to hard rock and indie with classical and punk thrown in for the hell of it," the band refuse to be categorised within any of these genres and even adopt different personas for their popular live shows.

In 2014 the rocky-jazz-punksters got together for a Steel City Sessions set at Attic Studios, opening with Running on Empty:

Finally, The Electric Luddites perform My Town:
