Jackson Scott has played guitar since he could stand
upright. His passion for flamenco and gypsy music was
inspired by his upbringing near Seville and travels through
India. In 2007 he met Cuban bass player Jimmy Martinez

famous excuse – joined later by Sky Murphy, playing guitar
and trombone. The result is a rugged blend of flamenco,
punk, blues, rumba and samba. They have been described
as ‘The Spanish Pogues’ and the ‘Indie Gypsy Kings’.

Josh Macrae. Picked up later, by legendary producer Youth,

shared stages with acts ranging from The Blockheads and
Razorlight to Cosmo Jarvis, Molotov Jukebox and The
