Twisted folk. Melodramatic popular song. Diego Brown and the Good Fairy like playing music in front of live people. Recording music. Football, bedtime stories, peanut butter, deep space, stilton cheese, goats, the smell of freshly cut grass, climate change, planet-friendly food, recycling, photographs, cinema, cycling.
We are part low-fat milk. Our musical education started at the age of about 7 at the knee of a second cousin who later changed the course of Anglo-Latin American relations. And we never looked back.
Some say we’re like the Carpenters on a lost weekend in Twin Peaks.
Someone once said we’re the most surreal musical experience since the Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band.
One writer said we were the talk of the chip van queue at Sidmouth international festival.
We tend to think of performance as a two-way thing. We have high expectations of our audience. And they usually come up trumps.
If it doesn’t have a story we think it’s unlikely to make a song. And if it’s not a song, what’s the story?
If you want the facts, try these: guitar, banjo, ukelele, drum, accordion, fiddles, swannee, kazoos, cymbal, shakers, drawings, cake, prizes, fuzzboxes.
