    label: Cherryade

    "In my ideal world Bobby McGee's would be No. 1 EVERY DAY" - Huw Stevens on Radio 1. "Like Dostoevsky Doing Skiffle!" - Everett True in Plan B. "Demented...Psychotic...Brilliant...World Beating" - Artrocker. "Evoking the spirit of Ivor Cutler & Ed Gein... wonderfully endearing & highly dangerous" - Bizarre magazine. Jimmy and El started writing and playing songs together in 2002, until they were joined by Graham on bass and recorded a whole album’s worth of hit songs together in one night. The result of these recordings was their debut ep ‘The Bobby McGee’s? Yes Please!’, released in April 2006, which gained them an army of fans all over the world, regular airplay from the likes of Huw Stephens, Rob Da Bank, Steve Lamacq, Colin Murray, Jon Kennedy and Tom Robinson, celebrity fans such as Jarvis Cocker and Fatboy Slim, and left reviewers scratching their heads trying to come up with words to describe The Bobby McGee’s experience! In November 2007 their long awaited second ep, ‘S’Amuser Com Des Fous’, cemented their reputation as one of the most exciting bands in the country. The story of The Bobby McGee’s' rise to cult stardom can only be described as extraordinary, involving, as it has, playing at Sweden’s Emma Boda festival and 2007 and 2008’s Indie Tracks festivals, articles in the NME, Artrocker, Plan B and even Bizarre magazine, sessions for Huw Stephens’ Radio 1 show, Tom Robinson’s 6 Music show and Jon Kennedy’s XFM show, and having one of their songs used in an advert for Film 4.
