A LOWESTOFT band is calling on local music fans to help them win a competition that could see them catapulted into the UK chart.

Local grunge-rockers Six Degrees of Separation have made it into the final 10 of a national music competition and there are just hours left for them to get their chance of stardom.

The competition has been set up through a Facebook group with the goal of getting an unsigned band into the UK singles chart. The organisers hope to attract enough attention through the competition that they will be able to propel the group into the chart.

The group, Let's get a genuine unsigned band into the charts, currently has 8,503 members, all of who intend to buy the chosen single next week to help the song chart in the top 40.

It is not the first time the social networking site has been used in such a way, after Rage Against the Machine famously claimed last year's Christmas number one through a Facebook campaign.

A total of 300 bands were nominated for the competition, with judges narrowing the initial entrants down to a shortlist of 100. Group members were then able to vote for their favourites as the bands were whittled down to a remaining 10.

Six Degrees of Separation have made the final 10 with their song Feels Like a Monday and band members Jamos, McCloud, Chris and Lee are all calling on the help of local people to help them win the competition.

“Voting for this final round closes at midnight tomorrow and we would like to hope that lots of people locally will go online and give us their support, to try and get a local, unsigned band into the charts,” said band manager Carl Prettyman.
