Band_C

Many moons ago Dave met Andrew and Andrew met Dave, at about the same time. Both had things in common; an addiction of music, enjoying the occasion bite of jazz and a love of being slightly different from the rest. This then took the form in the first song 'The Moon is Made of Cheese'. With Dave on drums and Andrew on guitar/vocals they lacked one instrument, the bass. Conveniently after a few years Oli appeared; Dave saw him, Andrew saw him, both saw him playing the bass and playing it well, this was perfect so Oli was soon ushered into the band.

The_Public

The_Public “The public are a band of friends and brothers who have been writing and creating together for well over ten years. Their music is simple and fun, onward and charging but at the same time nostalgia and darkness wait in the wings aching to surface. Through a few listens an obvious difference in the writing partnership occurs. Sweet anthem chord structures and 'sing along' sections softly slide into heavy guitar carried ballads constantly surprising the ear.” D L Bannister
