"The Humdrum Express (singer/songwriter Ian Passey) continues to document the quirks of modern times in a unique and infectious manner" - Rhythm & Booze
​Breezily delivered observation, social commentary and sharp wit, fused with familiar cultural references, surreal characters and subtle puns.
Solo gigs mix modern folk storytelling with acerbic poems and engaging chat.
Full band shows are an energetic blend of swirling indie clatter and life affirming, good humoured joy.
"Brilliant, observationally... part of me just wants to stand up and applaud" - Steve Lamacq, BBC 6music
"The missing link between Billy Bragg and Half Man Half Biscuit" - Attila The Stockbroker
Festival At Home, Cryptic Self Pity, Double Edged Swords, Copy Cats, Leopard Print Onesie, E-Petition and Online Beer Club have all been championed by Steve Lamacq on his BBC 6music show.
