"Like being chased by a victorian axe murderer" - Rough Trade

"One part folk with a dash of stadium rock" - Norman Records

The album ‘All Aboard that’s Coming Aboard’ was released on I Blame the Parents Records in 2010. The One Legged Elvis / Drinking Ballad EP followed this in November 2010. And recieved some fine reviews..

- Norman Records
