This is the band for the modern rock lover (a combination of indie punk and ska funk!) Formed in 1996 -
Originally a college band formed in Norfolk, UK by James Granger (Guitar) and Lee Ashby (Bass), The Monty, as they were then called, soon gained momentum performing their brand of Brit pop-rock material at countless venues around the UK. The Band soon found a creative niche with Darren Link (Drums) and Matthew Richards (Mellodian), changed their name to The Swelltones (partly derived from their coastal origins) and developed their characteristic full-on sound, crossing the genre borders with a rock-reggae-punk-funk fusion. They subsequently took to the studio with producer Ross Griggs to create the EP Big Fat Fish.
With a busy live schedule and an album in the pipeline for 2010, you’d better watch out for these guys as they continue to put the fun into funk and rock on and on and on!
