We close our 2002-2003 season at the Heart Of Lincolnshire Club introducing an exciting new act to the county. Our guests The Swampnobs are a duo from Lancashire whose intriguing background has led to columns in a national newspaper, a magazine article and an appearance on Richard & Judy's Show ealier this year. One of the duo was a well respected school headmaster before quitting his job due to the ever increasing pressures of cost cutting, league tables, etc which meant that the paperwork was a priority over the actual teaching. He decided to do what he had always wanted to do, that was the play music, have a good time and ... oh! ... dye his hair! Forming the duo, they play acoustic blues & roots, don't expect their music to be highbrow, they take other people's songs and perform them in their own way, adding a large dollop of humour along the way. They also write their own original songs much in the same vein. Whilst they aren't too well known (yet!) in the UK, outside of their home county of Lancashire, they are major stars in South Korea!
For one couple we spoke at a gig in Scunthopre to who attended this year's Burnley Festival and fringe events, the Swampnobs were one of their favourite acts of the weekend. Their music has a goodtime feel, their humour adds an extra dimension to their act. They will also be launching their new album at the club.
