(Vocal/instrumental group, 1995–99, 2005–present)

Crispian Mills (vocals), Jay Darlington (keyboards), Alonza Bevan (bass) and Paul Winter-Hart (drums) formed with the sole intention of making music that sounded as if it had been recorded in the 1960s. Their debut album K (1996) delivered this vision in spades and hits included a cover version of Deep Purple’s ‘Hush’. By second album – Peasants Pigs & Astronauts (1999) – the air had been let out of their retro tyres and they split shortly after, reforming in 2005.
