Minor Works Unit

Have you ever been in the wrong shop?
What is is it with Bearded men?
Have you ever driven in Bristol?
Are you appalled by your Seventies heros?
Why do children's stories gloss over butchery?

The Minor Works Unit live in and around Glastonbury in Somerset, England. They play acoustic instruments: Ukelele, Double Bass, Melodica, Guitars, Harmonicas, harmony vocals, Cajon and Hi-hat.
They write light-hearted songs with intriguing lyrics. The music ranges from Folk and Country styles to Ska and Swing. Sometimes Dan Bradford's deep and rough voice approaches the roar of Tom Waits, the backing band sound like something covering the Inkspots in the 1930's. Imagine if the Darkness did folk music and you might approach the sound of Minor Works Unit.
