AUDIO: Introducing The Band

So, as well as being a book and a blog, Punk Rock Pub Quiz is also a band and the name of the club night we run featuring said trivia-based rock 'n' pop combo. We performed our first show in December 2014 and have done entirely new theme nights most months ever since.


From left to right: Sam Drury on guitar, Patch Kelly on drums, myself on vocals, Josh Tildesley on bass and Oscar Manthorp on guitar, trumpet and anything else we put in his hands* (*not penis.)

The first round we ever came up with was this tribute to Christmas No.1s in which I thought it'd be funny to run the lyrics to five festive hit singles through Google Translate from English to Japanese and back again. The words that followed were like strange tone poems so in true "So I Married An Axe Murderer" style, the band came up with something suitably "beat". Enjoy...
