Walking Wounded are a 5 piece band from East London playing a wide variety of original material from Rock to Arabic, Reggae to Balkan, Celtic to Ska and more…
They feature accordion, guitar, harmonica, bass, percussion and harmony vocals and guest violin.
Despite their eclecticism the Wounded retain their distinctive sound that makes them instantly recognisable and the band rock with an energy that many an electric band would envy.
The band were one of the winners of the 2004 Glastonbury Festival unsigned bands competition, Jazz/World section, and one of The Guardian’s ‘Best of the rest’ at Glastonbury 2004.
“long before the current ‘gypsy punk’ fad…pretty damned convincing acoustic mini-world music-fest on disc. Their ramshackle sound, skiffle-meets-punk-and-shakes-hands-with-world music-while-air-kissing-ska- delivers a set of celebratory, high-spirited workouts impossible to resist” (Rock’n’Reel)
‘Party musicians, ideal for your local rave up. This bunch are a whole world party on their own.’ (Folk Roots)
‘Walking Wounded are a band with roots, rhythm, rock and conscience… Delivered in a style similar to the Levellers, i.e. full blast, the Walking Wounded are singing honest, loud and live…’ (Detour)
‘This band are fiercely proud of their eclecticism which sees them glide through acoustic punk, Jazz and Pop.’(Mojo)
