"The Hornblower Brothers" were a five-piece band from Brighton, England. They released their debut E.P. "Adventures In The National Geographic" on Bell Boy Records in October 2009 and later released the single "Give and Receivers / Ghost of Kerouac" on Static Caravan Recordings 19 April 2010. The group comprises Nathaniel Forrester (vocals, lead guitar), Alistair Johnstone (vocals, guitar), Gary Cox (keyboard, melodica), James Emery (bass) and Antony Groves (drums). Nathaniel, Alistair and Antony are currently writing and performing as "Heavy Dancers".
The Hornblower Brothers style has often been compared to Half Man Half Biscuit and Jeffrey Lewis, mainly due to the prominent use of satirical lyrics and an off-kilter pop style.
