Kitty Durham (16) is the youngest of the group and primarily sings and plays drums, harmonica, ukulele, banjo, trombone and guitar. Daisy Durham (21) is the eldest of the group, who primarily sings and plays drums, piano, accordion and xylophone. Lewis Durham (19) is the middle child who sings and plays guitar, piano, banjo, lapsteel and drums. He collects and plays/DJ's 78rpm records and has built a home studio for the band to record in. It consists of 1940's and 50's recording equipment such as 8 track tape machines and vintage BBC and RCA microphones. Kitty, Daisy and Lewis do not use computers or any digital format during the recording process. They live with their parents in Kentish Town, north London. All of them have left school, but previously attended Acland Burghley School.
The band are signed to the Sunday Best record label who released their second single "Mean Son Of A Gun", a song originally cut by Johnny Horton in the 50s, with the B-side "Ooo Wee" which they first heard on a 78rpm record sung by Louis Jordan. This was released on 45rpm, CD and a limited edition 78rpm vinyl. The tracks were recorded at home. The vinyl was also cut by Lewis using his own equipment (though possibly at The Exchange Mastering Studios, which is owned and run by his father Graeme).
