'A fine young band carrying the mod torch into new decades.....'

Hailing from Essex, this young 3 piece consisting of Jack Nyland (guitar, vocals), Alan Everett (bass, vocals) & drummer Jake Sampson formed in 2009.

Already making a keen impression, the band are playing the gigs that matter, & are enhancing their reputation by the week.

The band have demoed a number of songs which can be heard on their website...http://www.myspace.com/smalltalkofficial

Their potential is obvious from the outset. Well observed urban lyrics, with character studiies & observations on songs such as Hate, & Best Friends & Lovers show deploy a sense of irony & anger, whilst a keen melodic edge is there on 'What I Think' & 'Resurrection'.

The overall sound is one of an early Jam/Only Ones hybrid, a young band, feeling their way, looking good – a good bet for the future.
