Comparisons to The Smiths, Billy Childish and Johnny Cash give a partial insight into the sound that supports innately English lyrical confessions of murder and heartbreak. Tom has already being described as “an anti-folk hero” in Dazed and Confused and a “fast-rising new folk starlet" in the NME.

Biography

"Cupid shot me, the bastard got me” – Arrow In My Heart

Tom Hatred and the Angryband have been playing music together since the beginning of March 2007. It is testament to Tom’s writing that songs which originally sounded stark and tender when performed acoustically gain a depth and danceability now that amps, bass and drums have been added. From the big, bold and raunchy-riffed "Bear Cub Dancing" to the broken-hearted "Lost Without You" and the vapidity-baiting "From Here It’s Hard To Tell" Tom Hatred and the Angryband play emotionally honest, lyrically interesting music that make you pull the jerky dance moves favoured by indie kids the world over. Comparisons to The Smiths, Billy Childish, Syd Barett and Johnny Cash give a partial insight into the sound that supports these innately English lyrical confessions of murder and heartbreak. With an impressive lot of gigs behind him, Tom can boast support slots with Jamie T, Jack Penate, Joe Lean & the Jing Jang Jong, The Holloways, Tilly and the Wall, Johnny Flynn and Pull Tiger Tail to mention but a few. Remarkable song craft and energetic performances have Tom already being described as “an anti-folk hero” in Dazed and Confused and as a “fast-rising new folk starlet" in the NME, also being sighted as one of The Fly’s “names to watch” this May.
