Powered by Audioscrobbler™There’s a lot of boring bands out there, people are used to going out and seeing a mediocre three or four-piece pub rock band, and I think it’s quite refreshing to see a band doing something a little bit more out the box – although it’s not really out of the box at all.”

Alex Lawton, bassist for cult spacey surf-psych rock band Japanese Television, is musing on the appeal of his latest instrumental-only band.

The four-piece, known for their nostalgic 70s-sounding anthems, some redolent of TV theme tunes, were all members of different bands, coming together after repeatedly crossing paths on the circuit.

Their decision to ditch the convention of having a frontman/lead singer, has been the secret of their success, catching the eye of label Tip Top and leading to the release of two EPs.

Having not yet released their first album, the band still juggle their music with their day jobs. Alex works in an art gallery on the side, drummer Al Brown is in advertising and promotions, guitarist Tim David Jones is a carpenter, and keyboardist /multi-instrumentalist Ian Thorn works for a wine distribution company.
