O Fracas have won the September Battle of the Bands competition at The Fenton, securing a prize of two days recording at Soundmill Studios. The band received a glowing reaction from the assembled audience at the Final, last Tuesday night and said to leedsmusicscene, "We would like to wish the organisors of the event many thanks for putting on great show. We're going in to the studio in late October to do some demo tracks and possibly some new songs".

O Fracas are set to play in Manchester, Nottingham and Sheffield during the autumn, and will be appearing in November at Club Fandango, London.

In other news, rumour has it that O Fracas are to release an EP in early 2005 through the newly-formed label Bird War Records, a project of Leeds' Tasty Fanzine.
