Our music draws it's inspiration from Mr. A. Quayle's wonderful art.
You can see some of his pictures at www.angelfire.com/ak5/siltfish You'll need to persevere through all the pop-ups and turn to the gallery page for that.
That site is designed to give an insight into what Silt Fish is all about, so I refer you to those pages for more details.
The story began in the distant past, in a place called Chancet Wood, a small expanse of wilderness on the edge of Sheffield. Undeterred by our inability to perform the simplest of tasks, we embarked upon an ambitious musical adventure. Initially inspired by a variety of sources, ranging from René Magritte to Ken Dodd, we became a pop group.
We do not play live, ours is home-made music.
There aren't enough of us to play this kind of stuff live, we'd need to hire an orchestra-sized band of musicians who'd do exactly what we told them to do. I don't think such a body of people exists.
