English Eccentric Humour in Song

 

... somewhere between George Formby and Arctic Monkeys

 

"Catchy, clever songs, very English, very funny" - Eamonn Holmes, TV presenter, journalist

 

A sort of modern remanifestation of Roaring Jelly, with new material as well as a few revamped Jelly favourites. Line-up:

  • Derek Pearce - vocal, guitar, ukulele, mandolin, fiddle, accordion
  • Clive Harvey - vocal, guitar, ukulele, banjulele
  • Graeme Taylor - vocal, bass guitar, guitar, banjo


The original bass player, the enigmatic Da'aboth, had health problems and left after a few months to be replaced by the Morden Maestro, Graeme Taylor (Gryphon / Home Service) who had been a session player on Roaring Jelly recordings. GT had been a big Jelly fan and when invited to join the Essential Batty Acids tour with Clive and Derek in 2007 said, "Sod off. Only joking - I'd love to!" The rest is wisteria.

 

Three-quarters of all experts say that half the time two-thirds of us are simply not getting enough . . . ESSENTIAL BATTY ACIDS!
