Passionate about 78rpm shellac recording, travel, collecting and vintage fashion, we tour the country playing from our hoard of over 20,000 shellac discs. 

We use our 1930′s portable gramophones to play and spin shellac and we also have a pair our electric players affectionately called the "wheels of wood" The music is all on original 78rpm shellac discs and the music ranges from the 20s through to the 1950s

The players are amplified and can played in any size venue from the most intimate parlour or pub to a large marquee or ballroom.

The collection is just about a complete history of the best in 20th century music and includes music of the 1920s, 1930s jazz era, Be-Bop, the big band sound, Skiffle, Rat Pack crooners and Rock n’ Roll, female vocalists and a huge stash of the Blues We have a great collection of vintage Christmas songs and a hoard of pre-electric recordings from 1895 onwards which includes WWI songs, spoken word, comedy, music hall, brass bands and bizarre sound effect recordings.We pride ourselves on getting the music right and lots of our old records are in great condition ensuring that the sound quality from our superbly maintained gramophone players is the highest “low-fi” you will hear.

We're also members of the famous Shellac Collective and you can catch us every year helping run the Pig's Big Ballroom at Camp Bestival
