YES they are my mates' band. This is them:
formed by a long time friend of mine Jon Swain who I knew from university. He was briefly the bassist in the PWL band when there was such a thing.
His band are really excellent unashamed left of centre indie pop. Smart lyrics, great tunes, doing something non-generic and cynical. I think a lot of people on here will like them.
I JAG! them now because they're playing at my CD launch (by personal invitation of me) and I thought you might like to check them out.
