Night Without Sleep
Night Without Sleep are amazed they are still alive. They have fully embraced this lease of life in becoming an acoustic duo comprised of Mad Dogs – Wolff Williams (vocals/guitar) and Jim (Funboy) Loosley (guitar/vocals). Trying hard not to let themselves fall into any one genre of music, they are renowned for their dramatic live shows with their close to the mark lyrics and the ability to get under the skin of the listener, marking them out as true artistic performers. Sitting comfortably away from the safety of uplifting pop they offer songs that are interesting, edgy, full of emotion and very different to anything else you will see. They are currently in the studio recording a couple of EPs which is about time.
A dynsfunctional conglomeration of idiots, savants and undesirables. Thrown together by a shared love of toffee (vodka), and a strong and persistent desire to be really rather loud. Generally with wide ranging influences such as J.J. Cale, Smashing Pumpkins, Red Hot Chili Peppers and many many Mississippi blues geniuses. Often to be found fronted by Tom Meyritz holding a guitar and microphone, with Pete Lee to his right with a bass, Simon Tuohy to his left with a guitar and Dave "The Baker" Seaver behind providing the driving force on drums. This motley crew are often saved by the calming, although slightly mad, influence of Victoria Meyritz, singing her way through life like a sherpa of melody. A Riff Raff can generally be found in and around Tunbridge Wells, playing music and/or drinking. If a Riff Raff is spotted, it is generally advised to retreat quietly and watch from the bushes.
