How To Dress For Cricket
Three-piece band from Hereford influenced by Kyuss, Groundhogs, Queens of the Stone Age, Fleetwood Mac and ZZ Top.
Unusual to come across a band who get their name from a 19th century book on sport
"Take care of the stumps and the runs will take care of themselves." - that's the advice given in Cassell's Book of Sports and Pastimes (1893) - but then you probably knew that already.
Drawing their inspiration from the great British game, How to Dress for Cricket are a new three-piece rock band from Hereford.
The batting line-up of J. Jackson (bass, vocals), T. Harrington (guitar, vocals) and D. Lewis (Drums), mastered their forward defensive in other bands on the Hereford wicket (The Lakes, Armies of You, The Counterfeits, One Inch Men), before coming together in August 2007 to create their own brand of noise.
As well as rural pastimes, the band draw inspiration from bands such as Kyuss, Groundhogs, Queens of the Stone Age, Fleetwood Mac and ZZ Top.
The result is a blues/hard rock delivery that knows when to drive hard and when to groove easy.
Following a spell in the nets making sure the riffs are hitting the right spot, and explosive recording sessions at the regionally infamous Shed Studios, How to Dress for Cricket are now striding out onto the live circuit, with all the purpose of the bands and the game that brought them into being.
You can listen to all the latest music from across the two counties on the Friday Session Introducing..., every week from 7pm, on BBC Hereford & Worcester.
