    So I've become aware of these guys this week through their JCB single which has been on the radio - it's No 1 in the Irish Charts and set to take the British charts by storm!! :)

    Basically though - they are a duo - two guys who have been writing and playing together since school - one on acoustic guitar and one on Double Bass!

    I heard them live on BBC Radio 2 yesterday evening and they sounded great - a mixture of Cello-like bowed playing and lovely rich pizz sound on DB .

    So they have been touring solidly for 3 years and apparently they often get down into the audience and play completely acoustically in the middle of everybody , rather than on stage!!

    This has resored my faith in real music managing to make an impression on ordinary people - no big record company hype - no flashy presentation - just two guys with good songs and good playing!! :)

    Start of a big resurgence of DB in popular music.....? ;)
