3 piece Liverpool hook-infused indie blues rock soul pop reggae folk trio. Peter and the Wolf are; Donna Dosanjh with off-kilter percussion and ethereal vocals; Marc Sunderland finger style guitar/smooth vocals; with loping double bass by jazz musician, Hugo Harrison. Inspired by the likes of The Beatles, Paul Simon, Missippi John Hurt, Nirvana, and Bowie among others.
Part 1 - The band introduce, talk about song writing, and perform their new reggae track, Chemistry Set, as well as their 50’s influenced tale of a beaten wife, Doo What.
Listen out for the lyrics in Chemistry Set - beautifully simple, “Like group 1 metals in a wet sink – we’re volatile, volatile…but remember love in a test tube is worth the while – worth the while”.
Part 2 – Opening with a short blast of I hate myself and want to die blues (a track they loved so much they decided to drop the lyrics), they talk about self sufficiency as an unsigned band. Short interlude of their White Stripe’s-esque Sinner Song followed by a word about managers and agents. The rhyming lyrics of Sinner Song tell a sorry story, “My hands in the air, arrest me my dear, for I have sinned, I have sinned, temptation reached out to vulnerable me, now you’re guessing where I have been.” (inspired by Hank William’s).
Part 3 – The band introduce with Duties after which they discuss their take on the music industry played out with the warm heartfelt sarcasm of, We just want to move a little closer to you - a track written live (almost) about A and R men packed with witty hooks like, “You said ‘I love you’ as you walk through the door, your mouth was swinging”, (insinuating they are always on coke), “as you’re ticking the flaws”, and “What’s that dripping off a silver cloud?” (playfully flipping the British phrase, ‘every cloud has a silver lining’).
