So what's their secret? Well, their first good move was not to call the band Lip Green Tomatoes, a suggestion by one band member who remains nameless.

Instead, says guitarist Andy Kempin, the band combined the non-tomato part of the suggestion with another band member's offering of Lucid - to form Lipp Lucid.

Andy reckons the band's other main plus is having male and female singers. He said: "They push our really catchy harmonies through."

The band are playing at the Abbey Park Festival and have a big gig at Sound Republic in London's Leicester Square on September 1st.

The band are all home-grown apart from singer Natalie who snuck down from Liverpool. Andy, although realistic about the band's prospects, reckons success for a Leicester band would big fantastic news for all city musicians.
