Saw them live early in their existence at Reading, didn't finish the set though and didn't really stand out

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

Held off our venture into my hall of fame during August as a few of of us were on holiday

Here we go again with another excellent underrated band from the 70's on my playlist

Babe Ruth featuring the wonderful voice of Jenny Haan

Favourite Albums

First Base
Amar Caballero

Chart Stats

Apart from minimal chart success in the States, Babe Ruth struggled to gain popularity in the UK

Some nice little tunes here



This song is a journey well worth taking. It's a pity so few do
