were formed in Leicester, 1993 by songwriters Gaz Birtles (vocals,
sax) and Dave 'Wal' Walton (guitar, backing vocals). The original
concept of the band was to write and perform music that contained
elements of Country music, but with a Pop slant!
Bass player and keyboardist James Lynch soon joined the band and his
pop sensibility and falsetto harmonies matched Gaz and Wal's vocal
Over the years various members have come and gone and for a majority
of their existence they relied on self made backing tracks to provide
drums and key pads. Now they have gone back to their roots and enlisted
the talents of fellow Leicester drummer, Mark 'Flash' Haynes (on loan
from indie darlings, ist).
They are currently performing their music using acoustic guitar, string
pads, bass, brush snare and 3 part harmonies but make an epic sound.
Their songs are not meant to be background music! They have a reputation
as a great live band where on any given night their audience could
be amused or abused! But always with a tongue set firmly in cheek.
Great songs, great harmonies, great band!
A shame you've not heard them!
