If maturity had kicked in a bit earlier then Matt McGuinness (song-writer and front man for the band) might be resting his laurels on past accomplishments. Instead, from a man in the prime of middle age, comes a debut EP which captures his balladeering spirit, wrapped up in a heady blend of indie rock 'n' roll with hints of Motown.
As a youngster, Matt's guitar and songbook were an outlet for never-typical teenage angst, but despite various close encounters with opportunity, the big break never landed in his lap. Marriage, a handful of children and the ups and downs of earning a living and going bust left the guitar dusty and the songbook on the shelf.
The fast approach of fifty, and the successful implementation of an arts organisation in his home town of Derby were the prompts required to reverse this sad state of affairs. A couple of years back in the saddle and Matt's songbook is full again of dirty, tuneful, upbeat and anthemic tunes - all the richer for the life he's led thus far. And this is just the beginning.
