About us

We are a collective of musicians, performers and writers from Enfield in North London. We have been around and performing under the Mostly banner since 2003.

Tales Of The Blindingly Obvious

Musicians, Writers, Producers

T.O.T.B.O. is a concept created by the band that is a different way of performing. It places no requirement on the listener/ audience member to participate, all they have to do is listen. There are no gaps between the songs and the importance is placed on the segways between the songs and the change of key they introduce.

You can download the TOTBO mini album from our bandcamp site or wait for the forthcoming performances in July 2014 at Forty Hall Enfield. We are working on a new album that doesn't even have a working title, that is how much we are not committed to producing bizarre album names.

Hanna'a first gig, not!

The Islington gig which we still to this day haven't worked out how they had heard of us, was supposed to Hanna first gig with us as our new bass player. Unfortunately she had an accident and received concussion and was unable to play. So we ended up playing the gig with just the three of us.
