To all those who have been voting/listening - a great big thank you. We are hoping to use this to launch a publicity campaign in the UK media.

Let's also not forget that, more important than songs going up charts, we can get this war ended as soon as possible.

Sollox and The Spooners have been making music for a long time, but the exposure that the www can give them has inspired them to new efforts. The band are . . .

Why this name?
It's a spooner rhythm . . . it's just silly bollox.
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
mp3 & the internet change the music industry more or less totally. It empowers individuals.
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
Hmm. Money does strange things to people. Watch this space.
Band History:
Billy Sollox
Sollox started his musical career relatively late in life and formed ‘Sollox and The Spooners’, as he affectionately refers to himself and his band, to gain a wider audience for his increasing portfolio of songs.

He has worked variously as a car cleaner, computer company executive and, mysteriously, as a government employee. Sollox has consistently refused to speak publicly about his ‘friendship’ with the late Diana, Princess of Wales.

“Guitar” Gill Bates Snr
Plays guitar and sings. That’s more or less all anyone knows about this reclusive, influential musician. “Turns up. Plays. Leaves,” is the way Billy Sollox explains it.

Chuck Babbage
Plays keyboards, piano, percussion, and sings backing vocals. Babbage trained at the Royal Academy and then heard rock ‘n’ roll. Like so many before him, his life was never the same again. Unlike his famous “computer inventing” namesake, hates technology.

Dick Mell
Keyboards, Guitars, Saxophone
“Pell” Mell as he’s know by the rest of the band, due to his propensity to running around like a headless chicken. When not “musician-ing” he lives in an old rectory in Lincolnshire.

Job Stevens
Drums, percussion & backing vocals. Originally from Little Rock, Arkansas, Stevens now has a ranch in Montana, where he spends as much time as he can, between performances and recording.

Lee Bernerstim
Bass, backing vocals. The Spooner’s only bona-fide Cockney. Born in the east end of London and learned bass by listening to ‘The Ox’ - John Entwistle, who he met several times.

Sunil “Sunny” Lavrot
Guitar, Piano, keyboards. From the Lone Star state, Sunny does indeed love the sunshine and spends as much time as he possibly can sunbathing.

Suze Konrad
Backing Vocals, percussion. Another Londoner. When not touring Suze likes to spend time in that great metropolis.
Your influences?
Bruce Springsteen, Martyn Joseph, Steve Earle, Tom Robinson, The Beatles, Jimmy Buffett, Jackson Browne, John Mellencamp, John Lennon
Favorite spot?
Favourite spot? A large pimple I had on the side of my nose
Anything else...?
Often political, story-based songs of rock, folk, folk-rock and country flavour.
