Yes mate, saw them at a small festival last year, they were good, the shenanigans on and off stage, ie a 9ft polar bear walking through the audience adds a different dimension.

New album due from Calvi in the next few weeks

A pity her songs (jokers) received few votes in the Mega Song Contest, I suppose we are the only two on here who appreciate her albums, shame because Anna is a real talent
