As the bands biggest international fan the thought of being away from the thriving music scene of Aberystwyth for a year was initially somewhat distressing. However, being able to listen to the magic of Sock and Sandals over the internet, ment that the deprevation was short lived. Roadkill is my personal favorite, a song spectaculally brought to life by Derek! The lyrics of Socks and Sandals are intricate, fusing sarcasm with serious content, this over rided with the melodic sound of Blondie's guitar and of course kazoos. Well worth a listen!

This band has been an inspiration to me and the third most important thing in my life, after Jesus and my family.

A band full of kazoo wizardry! Under ground Christain folk music truly at it's best!

The music from these guys is hillarious...just imagine ben stiller, eugine levy, jim carey and owen wilson performing and you will get a flavour of the querky but yet whitty lyrics that the band employs. If your having a bad day i suggest you listen to one of their tracks. The most uplifting and funniest band i have ever heard and with a message that is appropriate in todays world...this band is a future hit in the making!
