Pop from a parallel dimension – the one where all the dark matter went – great melodies and sardonic asides from that Hitchcock of the chewed biro, Mr Lawrie Duckworth, and one of the most adept set of musicians in the west. Quality written through the middle like Brighton rock. Lawrie Duckworth has made a great name for himself with his band and as a solo performer. His songs have a great balance of heartfelt beauty and bleak humour. If Bill Hicks wrote songs then they might sound like this…
“Lovely contradiction of sing-a-long songs and inventive instrumentation” The Guardian
“Unique and very memorable” NME
“It can be a surreal ride, it can be a black comedy or you can play it to your grandma” Timeout
“The Duckworths delight in playing between opposing lyrical, thematic and musical ex-tremes; light and dark, humour and horror, noise and silence. They have played to opera audiences, at the UK DMC turntable finals and were most requested band on Glastonbury festival radio.
