Glambusters - 70s glam rock band; Seth's
old band. These guys also gave us our 'big break' with
a support slot at the Weston Arms in Bath which was
our first ever gig in 2005.
Pitman and Helena
who both did their bit at a charity fundraiser for Happy
Landings Animl Shelter in 2008.
Man Half Biscuit - favourites of Seth and
Jethro; we wangled a support slot at a rare HMHB gig
at the Cheese & Grain in Frome in 2007.
McGurk - awesome Celtic rock sprinkled
with humour. Supported us (!) at High Ham, but if you
are visiting Weymouth, check him out on his home turf.
Kirk - solo singer-guitarist whose set
runs like a live Radio 2 show. Supported us at Canal
Inn Beer Festival in Wrantage in 2008.
& The Hecklers - 'melodramatic popular
music'; an innovative three-piece who supported us at
The Perfect 5th in 2009.
Pony provided the balance of the entertainment
at a private party we did in Wells; amazing stuff too!
La La's who more than made up for the long
trip down to the Brighton Raceday West Cider
Festival in 2008!
(aka Graham Watts) great DJ - and a nice bloke too. Provided
the music between our sets at East Brent Harvest Home
'star of stage, screen and blue movies!' - or so he
asked to be introduced as, when he supported us at Clevedon
Conservative Club. A very funny man - and quite a talented
Soul Destroyers - a HUGE soul band from
Bristol: fourteen people, lots of action, lots of fun
to a soundtrack of those great classic soul tunes. They
headlined the evening session first time we played at
Sherston Boules Festival in 2006.
Rhythm Aces - a new take on the music,
verve and vigour of 1940’s/1950’s swing,
r&b and hillbilly music, Frankie Goes to Hollywood,
The Smiths and Motorhead! They followed us onto the
Main Street stage the first time we played at Sherston
Hitlas - a great fun band who supported
us (or did we support them?) at Animal Farm Adventure
Park in August at 2007. Hedge enjoyed them so much that
he joined the band...for a few songs anyway!
- Supported us at Midsomer Norton Music Festival 2006.
Last heard of heading off to South By South Festival
2008 in Austin TX!
To Kill - A Frome-based rhythm & blues
band - sadly now defunked. This was Hedge and Seth's
other band, and we played with them a couple of times
in the early days.
& Joe - a duo who supported us in Lacock
Morris Men - supported us at the Frome
Street Fayre 2006. Their website doesn't seem to be
working at the moment though...
By Jayne - kept us (and the crowd) entertained
in the freezing cold at the Shepton Mallet Christmas
who did some excellent balloon models (those apple hats
the bar-staff had were brilliant!) at the Brighton
Raceday West Cider Festival in 2008
Banner, who is always there for
our performances at the Bridgwater Carnival, and Pete
Budd, who helped out at the Keep
Cadbury's in Keynsham march and rally in 2007
(they closed it down anyway!)
have played with other bands, but these are the ones we
have web addresses for. If we have missed anyone, drop
