Winston Macabre?

A kind of twenty year musical friendship. For many years, they've been playing and entertaining with their art, crafting pieces of music spanning many genres, and now they've created a new project to bring forth some of the freshest new music around. It's a strange mix of pop, triphop, folk and rock, sometimes veering off into uncharted territory. It's dark, it's soulful, sometimes funky, sometimes playful, often outright mad. Influences include many fingerstyle guitar greats such as Antoine Dufour and Michael Hedges and some awesome bands such as Portishead, The Roots and so much more.


I can't believe I've only just discovered these guys, they've been missing from my life for too long!

I know a socialist manifesto when I hear one, and my foot won't stop jigging!
-- Jeremy Corbyn*

I thought Justin Timberlake had talent, but these guys really can play baby!
