Wife vs Secretary

Wife Vs Secretary are in session this wonderful summer evening. The band is Charlie Milne vocals and piano, Dino Bardot on guitar, Ally Batten on bass and Mark O' Donnell on drums.

Charlie is inspired by Jerry Lee Lewis and James Booker, Balkan Gypsy Music, moonshine rakija and the Boss.

After one of their first gigs someone told him that the band sounded like Captain Beefheart waylaying Bruce Springsteen in a dark corner with a bottle of whisky. Charlie would put that the other way round.

The band is named after, but nothing to do with, the 1936 film with Clark Gable and Jean Harlow, which they have all made a solemn vow never to watch.
