KILLING NO MURDER Tuesday October 18th 2011 £3 Entry
Killing No Murder are a 4 piece acoustic band, the result of long term friends Lu Cooper and Cailean Hunt (of Johnny Panic & Lo-Fi-Dol) deciding it was high time they melded their musical talents to create something new and interesting.
Starting life as a duo, Lu providing vocals with Cailean on guitar, they quickly attracted the attention of Chris Hoar (Lodestone), who brought with him a considerable talent for song writing, smooth vocals and beautifully picked guitar to compliment Cailean’s sensitive yet powerful lead.
With a tranche of original songs to showcase, they recruited multi instrumentalist David Moss (LightGarden) on fiddle, thus completing the line up.
Musically diverse, sometimes unpredictably so, they’ve been likened to the lovechild of the Magic Numbers and the Cranberries, taking influences from many genres to weave original melodies, sometimes foot stomping, sometimes mellow, but always telling honest heartfelt stories with their lyrics.
