It may be just part of my inquisitive nature but I have always found myself drawn towards bands with interesting names or albums and releases with striking cover art. Some while ago I was trawling through Bandcamp and stumbled upon a superb alternative rock band called Dead Shed Jokers who are based in South Wales, UK. Yes their name caught my attention along with the cover art of their Peculiar Pastimes EP which is still available on Bandcamp as a pay what you want download.
Peculiar Pastimes is the title of the album which gripped me from just a few seconds after hitting the play button, ‘Peculiar Pastimes’ is the first of six tracks as well as being the only studio track. The other five tracks are superb live recordings from the BRFM vaults. They are from a live session recorded in late May 2013.
