ABOUT

Setting up a 'Weird Folk' band, with international folk music at its heart (think Pete Seeger, Peter Paul & Mary, Simon & Garfunkel),

And then reaching out to experiment and explore many other musical ideas. (think punk, post-punk, jazz, old-blues, pop, rock & roll, outsider music e.g. Captain Beefheart, The Shaggs)

Mostly not too noisy, lets let the musical melodies and the lyrics be heard., especially in live gigs (where such a thing alone is an achievement!)

Starting off with some weird folk covers, and see where things go from there, all good if people want to get creative and write new songs too.

Influences

- Most US folk bands
- Punk, but more like post-punk
- Rock but more like rock n roll
- Blues, but more like old-skool blues like Robert Johnston
- Jazz generally, but more like to use some ideas than listen
- Classical generally, but more like to use some ideas than listen
- Traditional Irish, but more for the general vibe than any strict adherance to tradition
- US Country, even Country and Irish. Daniel O'Donnell is a legend deep down you know it too.
