Album Notes
The Bandana Collective came together somewhat by accident in the summer of 2010 when a scratch band was put together for a private garden party egged on by Kerry Stapleton who’s fans “The Bandana Brothers” had invaded the sets of POG, WOB, ASBO Derek, Tracy Curtis and many others during the summer festival season.

Bethan and Jon, who were playing at Hove Folk Club, were drafted in and the group, still playing under the Bandana Brothers name, played mostly Robb Johnson covers to great acclaim.

The renamed collective went on to start writing it’s own songs. First came the collective's well known hit “Awkward” mainly written by Jon followed by other songs from both Jon and Lawrie including “Rise Again”, "Dancing in the Snow”, “Living in Fear” and other crowd pleasers. These intermixed with their own variations on Bank Robber and Girl Friend in a Coma became the main music in the collectives performances.

As the collective became more confident and gained popularity Arvin and Robb Johnson were added as Rhythm section. Arvin is a young and talented drummer who will undoubtedly go on to great things. Robb Johnson who wrote many of the songs the collective started out playing plays a mean bass and provides songs and arrangements to the collective.

The first Album was recorded in September 2012 and is available now.
