No-one seems quite sure what to do with folk-blues outfit Fit and the Conniptions, a London-based trio with a "defiantly funky edge" (The Musician) yet also favourably compared to "Jethro Tull, Leonard Cohen and Attila the Stockbroker" (The Swindonian). "The lyrics pull no punches", say Sounds Magazine of their 2017 album, Old Blue Witch, described by music blog Dancing About Architecture as "a wonderful collection of slick anti-folk, warped baroque pop, bluesy meanderings, strange Celtic jiggery, political pokery, and no shortage of accessible melody and infectious hooks." As powerful live as they are on record, the band has been through various incarnations over the course of twelve years and four albums, and singersongwriter / bassist Wayne Myers is currently flanked by drums wunderkind Holly Mallett and viola / tenor banjo virtuoso Duncan Menzies.
