Influenced by 50's Swing, hot Latin rhythms, Rock 'n' Roll, Exotica, Blues, Retro Soul, with a strong stirring for darker Alternative, Rock, Electronica & Hip-Hop flavours,
Spallington's original music combines all the above, creating a juicy juxtaposition of genres and colourful ingredients! The flip side is a very cool set of covers with
unusual swing/latin arrangements of songs from all eras.
Spallington's hepcat phrase of the minute:
'Don't Blow Your Jets'
meaning: Try to keep your cool!
