The now London based power trio take their name from singer and guitarist-extraordinaire of the same name Little Barrie. Barrie has lent his talents (either on tour or in the studio) to the likes of Primal Scream, Edwyn Collins, Morrissey, Paul Weller, Spiritualized to name but a few.
Between 2009 and October 2010 the band have been writing and recording their third album "King Of The Waves" working again in Edwyn Collins studio with Edwyn, Seb Lewsley at the controls and Shawn Lee mixing. The new album is due out shortly. The band's sound is influenced by the British R&B and Blue-Eyed soul bands of the 60s and blues/funk from the late 60s and early 70s with Surf and Garage thrown into an explosive mix.
