The band is a 4-piece in the great tradition of British pop trios. Like The Police, The Jam, The Who (OK there was four of them), Nirvana (OK they were American) and Alberto y Lost Trios Paranoias. What do you mean you’ve never heard of them? Anyway they weren’t a trio – and they were rubbish. But you can find out more about them here.
Also on the list we have been known to vaguely resemble (on a good day)…The Kinks, Dr Feelgood, Dave Edmund’s Rockpile, Madness, Ian Dury, Squeeze, Joe Jackson, Elvis Costello, The Zutons, Kaiser Chiefs, Franz Ferdinand. And of course, The Birmingham Philharmonic.
