Thanks to Sarah Kennedy this morning I've been introduced to this fab retro act who were inspired to form following the film "Belleville Rendezvous" (one of my own fave animations). Since 2004 they've played their brand of swing era covers such as "Panic", "Mr Sandman", "Wuthering Heights" and "Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy" in venues ranging from the National Theatre foyer to gay lap-dancing bars. Slightly reminded me of a "Rock Follies" episode too.
Click here for some sample tracks - album out in July. The Radio 2 exposure has already earned a huge response, so expect to hear further.
