Younger days for Aaron and Jack in The Middens

Aaron Duff and Jack Coe – formerly of The Middens – are now working together on Hector Gannet. The Middens had been working together since they were at school from the age of 14, and in their six years as a band they played hundreds of gigs, and did numerous support slots with the likes of Penetration, 999, The Ordinary Boys, Stone Foundation, The Spitfires among others. Their music was played at Wembley Stadium when their home town football club North Shields FC got to the final and won the FA Vase in 2015. The Middens came to an end at the close of 2016, and Aaron launched Hector Gannet immediately in 2017, with Jack on drums and currently with Martin Wann on bass and occasional member Ryan Siddall. The current project is a leap forward both musically and in terms of application, with Aaron continuously writing and being influenced hugely in the audio visual project – Moving North: Coastal.
