The Darkness and Feeder on Bargain Hunt for BBC Music Day

The biggest music event in broadcast media is back for another year. Yes! There’s going to be another special music edition of ‘Bargain Hunt’! The Darkness and Feeder are set to go head to head on the daytime game show. Also, BBC Music Day is coming up again. Yes, that’s still officially a thing.

Last year’s BBC Music Day edition of ‘Bargain Hunt’ – a show where two teams buy some old rubbish at an antiques fair and then attempt to sell it for a higher price at auction – was filled with drama last year.

Initially The Happy Mondays won the game, beating Pulp. However, it then emerged that Bez had cheated – getting his girlfriend to bid on the items he and Rowetta were selling. The scam was seemingly uncovered after producers became suspicious that the Happy Mondays team had actually made some money during the show.

Will The Darkness and Feeder be able to drum up such tension and intrigue? Only time will tell. It’s unlikely though, isn’t it?

“This is the thing that my mother has been dreaming about for years now”, says Darkness frontman Justin Hawkins of his involvement.

Slightly more personally invested in the project is Feeder’s Grant Nicholas who screams: “I’m a huge fan of ‘Bargain Hunt’, a massive fan!”

You’ll be able to watch Hawkins and Darkness bassist Frankie Poullain take on Nicholas and Feeder bassist Taka Hirose on 26 Sep.
