J10 Studios one of the main sponsors for Battle Of the Bands gave out free recording and production to the winners ‘Interloper’ who won hands down and has now become one hell of a musical force.
‘It's always difficult to explain the history and purpose of a band without sounding either ordinary or pretentious. Interloper formed out of necessity, in order to enter the Band-soc Battle of the Bands at Warwick University three weeks later. Because of this, we had to develop rapidly and practice intensely to avoid imminent embarrassment. Our first live appearance was in the heats for this competition, which we were stunned to win, more so when we won the final a couple of weeks later. Encouraged by this positive reaction, we all decided to continue writing and playing together’. Interloper 2004
