Plant a handful of well-seasoned, ex local band members (The Crowmen, Eel Pie Island, The Reactions Tighten up, The Esplanades and The Standbys) into some fertile musical ground; nurture, encourage and water lightly with a little high-voltage vibe, and, before too long, the ground will have shifted, and fresh, ripe offerings will have sprouted up, ready for the new musical harvesting.

Speed Orchard’s original material is a mix of influences from punky pop to old-school garage with a bit of classic trumpet thrown in. Their songs of life, love, pubs and living by the coast make them a great band to see and hear.
