Figured as I'd mentioned doing a gig I ought to share the smiling faces of the rest of the band. We have: (l to r) Priya on violin and backing vocals, Ben on bass, Stew on accordion, concertina, trumpet, piano and whatever else he can reach, Jen on vocals and Jim on drums. I play acousic guitar and sing.

We've been together about a year now since they found my ad on gumtree. They had a few some great songs but needed more and a singing guitar player... I had a few more songs and a rhythm section so it worked out rather well. Ben, Jen and I all write for the band with honours about even I'd say. We do lots of covers to. Stuff by the likes of: Big Star, Sparklehorse, Love, Smudge, Violent Femmes, Townes, The Decemberists, Flying Burrito Bros, Hank Williams, Screaming Jay Hawkins and Loudon Wainwright III (The Swimming Song of Course!).

It's all rather good fun as you can see.
