The Bug Club – in session for Janice Long – BBC Wales – November 11, 2021 – BBC Radio Wales –

The Bug Club tonight, resurfacing after spending the better part of almost two years incubating, like so many other bands during the COVID pandemic. And like a lot of bands, have taken advantage of the relative downtime and put it to good use. In this case, putting an ep together as well as an album – the EP, which has already sold out, hit the street in April this past year, while the album is coming out now (November) and is available via their Bandcamp page.

From their label, Bingo Records:

The Bug Club are a three piece from the little-known rock n’ roll hotbed that is Caldicot, Monmouthshire. They’ve been gigging relentlessly for a few years now (until recently, obviously), mainly in Cardiff and Bristol, and this will be their first record. It’s an EP called ‘Launching Moondream One’, probably out in April. The band are made up of Sam Willmett on guitar and vocals, Tilly Harris on bass and vocals and Dan Matthew on drums.

So now that the dust is settling and life is slowly returning to an approximation of normal, The Bug Club are busy getting a UK tour together as well as promoting the ep and lp. Tonight’s session comes via Janice Long at BBC Radio Wales.

A band with a sharp-edge to their lyrics (how can you blame them for this past year?), disguised as quirky and eccentric. I think 2022 will be a busy year for them.

Crank it up and enjoy.
