The Bandits was among the new wave of Liverpool, England-based indie rings to emerge in the wake from the Coral’s commercial discovery in the beginning of the new millennium. John Robinson (vocals), Gary Murphy (electric guitar), Scott Dulson (bass) and Tony Dunn (keyboards) shaped the music group in summertime 2000 pursuing an impromptu campfire jam on the Glastonbury celebration. The quartet create their very own ‘Bandwagon’ evening at Liverpool’s Zanzibar Membership and agreed upon a recording agreement using the B-Unique label, adding lead Richie Taylor (acoustic guitar) and Dave ‘Swee’ Sweeney (drums) towards the line-up along the way. Like the additional rings around the so-called ‘Cosmic Scouse’ picture the Bandits’ audio rather haphazardly juxtaposes a variety of musical designs, drawing on rock and roll, reggae and jazz but even more specifically past due 60s psychedelic rock and roll titans such as for example Like, Captain Beefheart as well as the Doorways. They produced their saving debut in Feb 2002 using the John Leckie-produced 7-in . single ‘The Caution’. In summer time 2003 ‘Consider It And Work’ and ‘2 Stage Rock’ followed, before the release from the band’s PLUS THEY Walked Away. Despite posting obvious reference factors using the Coral, the recording’s melodic verve helped the Bandits stake their state to be one of the most exciting new rings around the Liverpool picture.
