Scratchy recently had the immense pleasure of catching live this talented young buck (and probable alt-girl pinup) along with his band The Sussex Wit. He showed why he is leading the charge of new wave talented alt folk/Americana (Angloana anyone?) and is attracting favourable coverage in the muso media i.e Steve Lamacq's radio 1 show. He valiantly fought through a number of technical difficulties to deliver heartfelt songs to the laidback but appreciative crowd. He is a minstrel that won't melt in your mouth but will melt in your ears. Special mention to the support act Fireworks Night for providing a sparkling warm up. They are also worth keeping an eye on and all hail to the 'gold rush prospector look' with accompanying face fungus. The brace wearing revival starts here..
