They reject the label ‘rockabilly’ and looking at their playlist, maybe that’s so – it’s more blues, the songs not half bad.
I didn’t know they’d been around that long, this interview reveals much:
Kitty is the taller sister, youngest sibling, hardly smiles, plays harmonica, wears green a lot, Lewis the middling one on guitar, Daisy the eldest, smallest, bossiest, yet smiles sweetly, wears yellow with that weird drumming.
I was not sure I liked them on first youtube watching but then learnt that they were doing this analogue recording, issuing vinyls, doing their own arrangements or writing their own material – they’re really quite something that way, plus they can play.
A long piece to take us out, harmonica Daisy goes into trances with the microphone, strange drumming from the eldest again,the boy introduces the whole band in the last few minutes:
