A pop-up rock gig at a moorland venue raised about £1,350 for Manorlands.

Keighley band Rock Bottom Risers played the gig to more than 200 people last summer.

Band member, Charlie Clegg, said the show marked the release of the band’s EP recording.

He added the musicians wanted to launch the EP by playing “in the middle of nowhere”!

Charlie said: “We built the entire venue from scratch and hosted it outside my house in Oldfield.”

The EP, entitled Fever Of A Non-Believer, is available for download on iTunes, Spotify and Amazon.

Meanwhile, Rock Bottom Risers last week released their latest single – Things Could Get Better – with a video on YouTube, which attracted 700 views after only 24 hours.

The Rock Bottom Risers are planning a “huge show” at Keighley town centre club Blast – formerly K2 – on December 20.

They will also play Hudders-field Students Union in December and the O2 Leeds Academy on February 1, and plan a return to Manchester Academy.
