DEBUTCONCERTIS A KINGS-MAKER! Unsigned group record music for computer game.

Byline: TINAMILES

AN UNSIGNED Liverpool band are hoping recording a song for a Playstation game will be their big break.

Man-Get-Out were spotted at their very first gig, at The Zanzibar Club, by a Sony representative.

And now the electronic rock band's song Doppler is being used for the game Hustle Kings.

It is expected to be launched in America next month and could be on sale to gamers across Europe.

Man-Get-Out are singer Daniel-Lloyd Ellenburg, 22, bassist Joe Lowton, 24, pianist Robert Owen, 24, and drummer Chris Pusey, 21.

Former Liverpool Theatre School student Daniel, from Allerton, said: "We met through mutual friends and we had our first gig at The Zanzibar last month. We didn't know it at the time but there was a Sony representative in the audience.

"We gave out a few of our CDs after the gig. A week later someone phoned us to say they were interested in putting it on a new Playstation game.

"It was our first ever gig, we don't have a manager or anything like that, so it was amazing.

"It was a local venue and to have something like that to happen to us and for someone from Sony to be in the audience is really encouraging for bands."

Liverpool University student Chris said: "All we know is it's for Hustle Kings and it is being promoted in America in June.

"It's pretty cool because we recorded it ourselves." The four piece are hoping the release could be their big break in the music industry.

Daniel, who also plays the guitar and piano, said: "We've got a gig at the 02 Academy in London in June.

"We had already recorded the CD but they wanted a few different versions so we went back into the studio..

"People should be able to access it on the Playstation online store, which is amazing for us.

"The game should be released on the Playstation 3 in 2010. Hopefully this will be the start of something big.

Everything is happening so quickly." The band, who rehearse together at the Elevator Studios in Dale Street, want to focus on recording their debut album.

A spokeswoman for Sony said the game was still in the early stages but could be released in the UK..
