Heavyball Release “When Can You Start?” – The Definitive Concept Album About The British Office Worker
After already reviving praise from BBC Radio 6 and the likes of Jimmy Somervile, Heavyball are back with their first full-length release, “When Can You Start?”. The album is a twelve-track meditation of a week in the life of an office worker. A true reflection of British life for so many people in 2018, bathed in bathos and pathos and the glum tragedy of dead-end jobs; failed dreams and minor personal triumphs. “When Can You Start?” is a triumph of bitter-sweet social commentary.

Formed in Nottingham, Heavyball is fronted by Bigface on vocals and guitar; his brother Habs on drums; Johnny Iball on bass and Tom “Stone Cold” Frost on lead guitar. Though there is a clear Ska and 2-Tone influence in their music, “When Can You Start?” is far more than an album aimed at fans of a particular musical style – it is an album for anyone who enjoys the art of story-telling and the fine line between comedy and tragedy.
With a reputation for incendiary live shows, praise from people as diverse as: Jimmy Somerville; BBC 6Music; BBC London and Absolute Radio’s Frank Skinner, Heavyball arrive in your life in the nick of time. They will be happy to have a chat near the photocopier on your lunchbreak.
