The View hand big break to band

Rock band The View chose an unsigned three-piece group to support them at a gig in Norwich - just hours before the Friday concert began.

Local group Monroes were picked after the Dundee-based band launched an urgent appeal to find new talent after their support band dropped out.

The idea was inspired by The View's big break, when they handed a demo to Babyshambles frontman Pete Doherty.

Monroes drummer Lenny Rout said he was "nervous and excited".

The group, made up of three 18-year-old students, have been together for two years and have performed in and around Norwich.

Rout likens their sound to "indie new wave with ska and reggae influences".
