This London-based group formed in 2006 is attracting attention in parts of the industry and rightly so, as the mix of light hearted pop and Ben Folds style vocals creates a CD of four slightly off kilter acoustic pop songs which are a joy to listen to. The opening track "Luxembourg" introduces us to a place where John Peel is still with us and Bob Dylan "is still alive". we may not understand where they are coming from, but you will want to go there! Track three "Lift Your Feet" is driven by great honky tonk piano and trombone, which will get your feet moving. Only by track four, "I Think I Blame The Government" does the pace slow down. Expect to hear great things about this highly original bunch in the near future.

Thanks you very much. That's lovely.
Although I'm not sure Ray Davies would be too happy if he read you thought his Yamaha concert grand sounded like a honky tonk.
