"Take a lot of funk, some good old fashioned no-nonsense rock and mix in a little cheese-laden synth playing and you're close to the unique, energising sound of Spygenius"


Take a lot of funk, some good old fashioned no-nonsense rock and mix in a little cheese-laden synth playing and you're close to the unique, energising sound of Spygenius.

I mustn't forget to mention the excellent vocals that fit perfectly to this mix; something that's not easy to pull off, though when you analyse lyrics such as; "Jesus is alive on Pineapple Drive", all becomes clear! That's not to say all of the songs are quirky pieces, songs such as 'A Bottle of Reds and Two Good Friends' are very warming with their calming sweet melodies and gentle vocals.

The album is great for feeling good and my favourite song has to be 'The Ballard of Dr T F Bundy and his Hirsute Sweetheart' for it's simple funk-filled obscurity!

Bio

We have the music bug!

"If you appreciate the jangle-meistering of the Byrds and Beatles, the harmonies of Crosby, Stills and Nash, the lyrical wit of Robyn Hitchcock you'll love Spygenius."

Spygenius is a 4 piece band, inspired by artists like Robyn Hitchcock, The Pixies (early) REM, The Beach Boys, The Beatles and Buffalo Springfield - without sounding like any of them.

We offer great original music with a light 60s influence. We play original guitar based pop music for people with an appreciation for great harmonies and intelligent lyrics.
