Introducing The Affirmative 'She was reading porno on the twenty-to-eight, because The Guardian called it literature and said it was great' The Affirmative are an eclectic guitar driven rock band from Plymouth, fusing British indie with Americana, harnessing story-telling traditions from Bruce Springsteen to Ray Davis, to produce a Splendid debut album of songs ranging from the lyrically and musically complex, to quirky reminiscences about lost love and wasted summer days. 'The King was twenty-five years gone when I first touched down in Memphis….' The Affirmative are a lapsed Londoner and a Belfast exile and their music is shaped by everything from the American South to the English South-West and many well-worn highways and byways between and beyond.

The Affirmative are:
Jon Shaw: Lead vocals;; guitars;; keyboards
Simon Topping:Bass;; backing vocals
