The Elasticated Waist Band / Bio

"Punk lounge, tv ska, funk - even jazz (though never jazz funk)"

Inspired by God knows what, Chris Salmon, guitar wielding maestro of Stump (quirky(sic) avant gardeners) has pulled together an altogether different kettle of fish...

Alongside Peter Stephens and Michael Levison of 80's 'punk' act Spit Like Paint, Salmon has found a band that has created a new genre - forward-looking retro. Ably supported by multi-instrumentalist Steve Wilson and Glyn Owen, drummer with The Mike Flowers Pops, The Elasticated Waist Band have recorded a collection of tunes that sound like every band you've ever heard (without their singers) - the soundtrack to the best, worst film (n)ever seen.

With music played on proper vintage instruments, recorded on magnetic tape in wide 60's style stereo, you'd be forgiven for thinking you'd got this pigeon holed, but bear in mind The Elasticated Waist Band have performed with Can's Damo Suzuki and are joined on their album by saw player, Ruby Wright, and the serially ubiquitous brass player Terry Edwards then you know you have to scratch deeper...
