Drawing influence from rock, blues and soul, the boys (Andrew Hubbard - lead vocals and rhythm guitar; Lawrence Felice - lead guitar; John Wilson - drums; Arty Haire - bass) play a brand of music they refer to as ‘chip ship rock and roll’.

Their first single ‘Impossible’, is a high energy track and the first from their forthcoming EP ‘Papa Ganoosh’.

Lead singer Andrew Hubbard said: “We have a song called chip shop rock and roll and, if we get to make an album, it’ll probably be called that.

“For us, chip shop rock and roll is all about gritty riffs, catchy hooks and real-world lyrics.

“We sing about what we see and experience, as opposed to what Alex Turner may refer to as ‘fake tales of San Francisco’.”

The boys have tours are in the middle of a south east tour that will see them play Bedford and London in the coming months

The Papa Ganoosh EP will be launched in the summer.
