Clear Again has been a long time in the making due mostly to our own ineptitude and a preference for actually gigging rather than knuckling down and finishing the damn thing. So here it is and we are dead pleased with it. Thanks to everyone who helped and encouraged us and to our friends who allowed us to interpret their songs.
Sam plays guitar and washes his car
its a nice car
Dave plays guitar, sings and does everything else in the band that Sam doesn’t, apart from washing the car
Growing up in Belfast in the 70’s the FOS brothers fuse an eclectic mix of their own original songs with traditional Irish sensibilities flavoured liberally with Floydian/Genesis/Horslipian spices.
Their mix drums, percussion Loops and samples and soaring guitars and bass delight Festival and Venue audiences and that’s even before they start singing! – New CD Clear Again was mastered by Simon Heyworth of Mike Oldfield’s famed production. – he liked it
Bucolic folk has a psychedelic head-fit.
Back again after a 3 year break to sort his head out
Pete Bingham is an old friend that Sam and myself have watched from afar when he played bass with Waulk Elektrik and jiggerypipery. Always thought … if we ever have a bass player again in the band it will be Pete. Here we are hes in the FOS Brothers and will be doing larger festivals and venues with us in future.
Gary Evans is the drum and percussion pro (I mean prostitute) of Exeter. Tough man to book but worth it. We struggled to find a replacement for Rom Dobbs and Gary is well up for it. He plays on half the tracks of our new CD ‘Clear Again’
