Broken Dolls; an idea born from a mutual love of MC5, accidental girlfriend sharing and extended bouts of late-night boozebonding; a kickass rock band to get those fists pumping airborne again.
The West Midlands, our nation's industrial heartland and seedbed of invention where 'letting off steam' has become a local tradition. Zep and Sabbath were schooled early on in gritty Midlands working men's clubs and were forced to be as hard working as the audience or accept the consequences. No foppish dandiness here. Just grit, vomit, power and glory. Move on a decade to Coventry, where the polyracial populace are forced to vent their collective spleens in the form of Ska, Reggae and 2 Tone Records. The Specials captured the mood of the downtrodden in Thatcher's Britain and for a time they ruled the world.
