Tom Moody (bass) and The Display Team’s Jim Devese (drums) make up the rest of the line up and the trio have been playing in and around London over the last few years to ever expanding and eager audiences.
Taking inspiration from the likes of The Pixies and Pavement, they released their debut album ‘Hermes Has Left The Building’ which featured the singles ‘Champagne With Sean Penn’ and ‘Kate And I’, which was soon followed by their most recent release from 2013 ‘Unconsciousness/ Happiness’:
‘Kate And I’
