"Quadrophobe - Quixotic EP Review"

Quadrophobe walk the fine
line between annoying
novelty band and musical
Sadly I can’t put them on
either side, but I am however
prepared to admit that I have
a weakness for ska bands.
Madness – love them. UB40 –
brilliant. So, it was
unsurprising that I was
immediately drawn in by the
cheeky 2-Tone rhythms and
mischievous brass section that
are so well put together on
Opener “Few Last Words
(What Did I Expect)” is fairly
tame in comparison to some
of later, more outrageous
tracks, but it’s still
wonderfully infectious. “Hey!
Sir Penguin” signals the
introduction of silly voices,
nonsensical lyrics and the
temptation to do even sillier
dances around my living
The very pinnacle of silliness,
however, came when I found
myself turning up the last
track, “Super Badger”, to a
level that would have
alarmed the neighbours into
thinking that I should be
admitted to a psychiatric
It’s amazing in all senses of
the word – amazingly
original, amazingly hilarious
and amazingly terrible,

of bewilderment and

one side the fine line… This
lot are onto something, and I
hope more will begin to take
their silliness more seriously. - Oxfordshire Music Scene Magazine - Josie Allchin

Recent finalists of Jack FM's Next Big Thing competition, Quadrophobe hark from a town where the only two major pastimes are forming bands & drinking. Beginning life as a culmination of both, Quadrophobe quickly escalated into an all-consuming song and dance.

They have extensive local gigging experience, and have recently enjoyed promotion from local radio stations (BBC Oxford, Jack FM, Studyvox FM, This Reality podcast) as well as positive reviews (Oxfordshire Music Scene Magazine - http://www.vitaloxford.com/publications/oms_issue6.pdf - page 8).

Since formation, they have written songs, broken genre taboos, ridden a piano through a small Oxfordshire village, gigged, and pioneered the Jazz Elephant; roughly in that order.
