Corruption, a 6-piece band covering music from all genres and all eras. We do covers from B52s, Ting Tings, The Who, Blur, ZZ Top, Jam, 10cc, Steely Dan, and pop classics from bands like The Cure, OMD, REM, Michael Jackson, Abba, Chic, and many more! Obviously we named the band after the current state of politics in the western world , but we make no claims or political comment, just seemed appropriate!
The band was formed from the detritus of other bands, namely XL-5, Sharp’s Hooter, and the girls were brought in from Roughage Acoustic Quartet. We have two guitarists, Harry and John, Bob on bass and Moony on drums, as well as Amanda and Emma on vocals and percussion. Harry and Bob handle male vocals.
Overall sound is, well … eclectic I guess, with the pop songs getting a fine rock veneer.
