Formed from the ashes of Hug who released three e.p.’s and an album on Kitchenware in the 90's and were hotly tipped by the NME, Radio 1 and Mark Radcliffe, Overspill Poets head out in a new direction, blending driving alternative rock and alt country guitar jangle with vocals that root them firmly in the North of England. It’s a sound that’s been described as “Ultimate Driving Music”.


“A richly crafted piece which comes from the heart”

Subba Cultcha
“Thompson Falls is quite a find and will find a place in the hearts of those with an affection for alt country... the guitar playing is at times astonishing”
