We are the trans-Atlantic alliance of Bob Kingdon, from England and Eric Daum from New England. We are a virtual band inspired by the music of Bill Nelson, Power Pop and girls in short skirts and tight shirts. Bob handles the guitars, Eric, the keyboards, loops and programming as well as dabbling with his ancient Rickenbacker on a few songs. Both Bob and Eric sing and share songwriting. In addition, we sometimes set the poems of Carole Young, a Scottish poet to music.
Bob and Eric have been helping each other out on a host of projects for over a year and decided to formalize their association in honor of Bill Nelson's 60th Birthday Project:

Bob brings to the partnership a great Power Pop sensibility and an earthshaking Yamaha SG2000; Eric brings an obsessive compulsive's penchant for tinkering on complex mixes and cold beer. (He's the American after all)
