About The Band
Like Ian Dury fronting the Byrds. Like XTC covering Chas'n'Dave. Like Martin Newell joining Madness. Like Kirsty McColl if she was a bloke from Essex.
Like skimming across a pond on a sunny day in an old fashioned rowing boat, dangling your fingers in the water and unexpectedly having one of them bitten off by something just below the surface.
Crafty powerpop and alternative rock song-stories for grown-ups. You'll probably recognize people you know in the lyrics. Reassuringly accessible but with an edge like bitter chocolate.
