It is NO secret that tinybluechildren are the antithesis of today’s ‘painting by numbers pop’. This five piece guitar band play storming live sets, winning over the hearts and minds of their faithful following.

The line-up - Gareth Jones (vocals), Ben Alexander (guitar), Rob Houghton (guitar), Dean Cook (drums and b vocals) and bassist Nick Smith - provide a fusion of rock that has been likened to Stereophonics meets Pearl Jam whilst having a streetfight with Travis and The Calling!

To define tinybluechildren would rob them of their clever rock fusion; Definitely a sound with huge potential. I have seen much less accomplished bands on MTV2 (Andy Quirk - Drowned in demo review).

In the last twelve months tinybluechildren have delivered 7 demos, released an album entitled The Blue Room and have just finished recording their latest EP for release in April 03.

The vibe is out there and interest is building in this band thanks to two recent performances in London at ‘Sound’ and ‘The Garage’. Their songs explode again and again, fans of Pearl Jam, Stereophonics and REM will be intoxicated by this performance (UK Rocketnet).

With their distinctive sound and ever-so-slightly unusual name its fair to say that questions are usually asked about the music first and the name ‘tinybluechildren’ second! The music speaks for itself but the name is the result of drunken musings as to what the shortform ‘tbc’ truly meant. According to these guys it means ‘tinybluechildren’ so now you know, make everything ‘tbc’!
