Being Let Down

our recent single



Turns out, WE’ve let THEM down!


This song explores the responsibility we, as the older generation, have for creating a world in which our children’s lives will not be better off than our own and which we leave in a worryingly downward spiral.

Will Hudson, Rangoon

Perfect Face

Our new line-up has produced a new sound with new songs, and reinvented older ones.


Rich and Howie's innovation and musicianship has created something eclectic, urban yet country, sophisticated yet rootsy and all with a new blues flavour.


It might just be our tastiest album yet!

Lost & Found

Lost & Found is about turning the corner, finding a road home, knowing where you want to be.


Things can be hard, life can be a bitch and you may be a long way from home, but there can be an exhilaration that hits you when you find yourself, when you know what’s right and you take that first crucial step, under your own steam, towards a goal you know you want or indeed away from a past you know you don’t want.


“Once I was lost but now I know I’m found”

Belfast Ferry Feeling

Belfast Ferry Feeling is an autobiographical song written by Will Hudson.

"I lived and worked in Belfast in 1979/80, and my daughter, Zoe, was born there, clocking up a good number of Irish Sea crossings.


Twenty five years later, as a member of a band playing traditional Irish music, crossings were pretty regular for another five years.


The song is about the strength of family ties. As an Australian in London, a Londoner in Belfast, and a father on tour, the ferry crossings were always imbued with a sense of excitement and longing.

This for Zoe, currently expecting her first child."      WH,  May 2020

Filmed at the Northern Soul Bar Basement, London

a talented musician & special effects artist,

"Though I'm growing old,

gonna break the mould,

I'm going back to the city

before I die.

What if this road never ends?"

- Long Road Home
