'Like the Jamie-T of Cardiff... great' - Jen Long
We're putting all our songs, rough or 'well' recorded on here. Whether you like it or not. In fact, we will persist to upload songs that you hate in the desperate hope that you might never visit this page again... please.
We play plenty of gigs across Cardiff and are very experienced live performers despite our average age of 16.
One of the best three-piece, teenage, melodica+uke+guitar, busking/gigging, acoustic/alternative/punk/ska/gypsy/pop/folk/reggae/prog/experimental bands in East Cardiff. These three youths are a unique acoustic outfit comprising of Ukulele, Melodica and Guitar. It makes a surprisingly full sound. Despite their soft, twee appearance and upbeat tones, their lyrics are often grim descriptions of the hardships faced in inner-city life or tributes to local characters. Their themes and influences show a surprising awareness of the world around them but without being boringly serious. Songs such as Helio (a ballad of a man who works in Lidl!), Locked Out (about... being locked out) and Nine O'clock - Memory Block (about not having enough change in the corner shop) are both musically refreshing and joyously delivered, with passion in the honest vocal stylings. All this honesty, uniqueness, sound and influence comes together to create Inconsiderate Parking: Cardiff's teen busking sensation.
We've supported the likes of Kids In Glass Houses and Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly. We've played gigs in London (Royal Albert Hall, to a crowd of 3,929) and Birmingham (02 Academy). Earlier this year we received air play on Radio one and our music was discussed in detail and highly praised by the likes of Mike Williams (deputy editor of the NME) and DJ, Jen Long. We have extensive experience of live performances in almost ANY environment. From busking, to bars and pubs. From open mic nights, to large venues and music festivals. We've certainly been around for a band who's average age is only 16.
Our song 'Locked Out (Again)' was recognised and chosen to be part of a list of 40 diverse, unique tracks from unsigned and unrecognised artists across the U.K. The aim of this ambitious Facebook campaign, known as 'Storm The Charts' was to get as many of these songs into the U.K top 40 in one week as was possible. These 40 songs were picked out of more than 600 that were put forward by adult bands. Our song was chosen by members of an expert music panel which comprised of Sofia Hagberg (who runs End Of The Road Festival), Wes White (current writer and editor of 'Attack!!!!' magazine, former Glastonbury Emerging Talent Competition panelist), Steve Henwood (books the bandstand and Glasto among many other things) and countless music bloggers, journalists, DJs and label owners.
