THE MIGHTY DYNAMITE: Bath Indie rockers!
STEVE BUSH AND FRAN FEY: Bristol based troubadours have been writing, recording and gigging together for a decade now. Their first album,'Row of Ashes' was released in November 2008. with the follow up, 'Earl Grey and Leather' released in November 2016. Steve Bush first stepped out in Bristol with Essential Bop - one of the city's seminal new wave bands. His reputation for intense stage performances and acerbic lyrics has not diminished since. In 2001, after many years in London, Steve – having just returned to Bristol - released the acclaimed 'Blossom Freak' album. Fran hails from Wales. Proficient on guitar,mandolin, zither and ukulele, Fran has played all over the world, including jamming with Arab Musicians in Kuwait and playing echoing space music atop the Himalayas.
THE FUN TANS: But whatever their professional pedigree, their musical and style influences are reassuringly mongrel. Opener ‘Concrete’ is paradoxically light and fleet of foot, conveying, as it does, something of a quaint Gorky’s Zygotic Mynci vibe, with rather fetching violin and split gender vocals. Look out for the cute Dylan and Joni Mitchell references and a rousing finale that is again reminiscent of Cool Cymru’s finest.
