THE MOSS POLES
The Moss Poles have never stopped delivering top-drawer guitar-based songs over the last 25 years, and by top-drawer read brilliant.
The music ranges from Jesus and Mary Chain meets the Beatles to more wistful, touching tunes that bring a tear to your eye.
The constant focus over the years has always been on the quality of the songs with a truthful, often ragged edge, but always meant.
Never doubt there's a Moss Poles song for almost everyone.

Behind the Music
The Moss Poles formed in the late 80's and were essentially a three-piece band with Nick Potter and Sean Bergin as the core with a variety of drummers (and drum machines) over the years.
They met and formed in London and were quickly spotted by MCA records who then passed the group on to work with Idea Records as the development label for Warner-Chappell. Jeff Chegwin was the publisher with Harry Barter as the Manager and Andrew Fryer the Producer of the band's various releases. The band then moved over to Mayking Records.
The first single - One Summer - and first album - Shorn - created huge interest and led to a second single - Underground - and a third single and second album that were never released (Mayking went bust).
After constant gigs and a national tour the band in its original format fell away.
The new album 'You're No Good' includes tracks from the previously unreleased 2nd album along with a number of newer tracks recorded over the last few years and is in response to renewed interest in a band that never really fulfilled its true potential, but has never been forgotten either.
Ob-la-di, ob-la-da, life goes on.
