Event Details


The electro-psych/multi-media outfit, offer a satirical attack on the modern world, with tracks Selfie Stick (Narcissistic Prick), Twit Machine T12, Corgi Stop & Meds and Beer. It’s a brilliant showcase for what they’re all about; humour, satire, and a whole lot of personality.


Originally started as a two-piece featuring the writing duo of Donald Ross Skinner and Rupert Ingham, they initially focused on developing songs from a variety of genres making full use of their wealth of collective and complimenting skills. Skinner’s talents as a writer, producer and guitarist working with a wide variety of artists including Julian Cope, Jamie Hince, DC Fontana, Prolapse and, latterly Salad for their successful comeback and Love Amongst Ruin featuring Steve Hewitt (ex Placebo) are used to good effect. Actor and classically trained musician Rupert Ingham brings dramatic structures and compelling lyrics tinged with irony and humour on life’s issues, ably adding to their growing list of developed tracks. These life issues show up in the lyrics and melodic mood of some whilst more gritty rock tracks with distinctive bass lines are evident from audience favourites like ‘Brutal Reign’ and ‘Down Down Down’. The addition of drummer Nigel Dean (Dogger, Moth) and bassist Michael Clough have seen a four piece honing their work with aggressive and punchy bass lines driving a solid and very experienced backline. A group writing effort has latterly resulted in catchy numbers as featured in ‘Devil Road’ and ‘This Time’ that form a staple of their gigs.
