DCW have three BBC 6 Music sessions under their belt (for Marc Riley and Cerys Matthews), and three albums released by Blang, They’ve supportedThe Fall, The Fat White Family, and The Nightingales, their live shows remain one of the London scene’s most vital alternative rock experiences.

Mayne composes the songs and, despite possessing only seven fingers (a congenital deformity humorously represented on the front cover of the Octoberman Sequence EP art), he also plays guitar. With influences ranging from The Birthday Party to Jonathan Richman, DCW’s songs swing between the sweet and the disturbing. Whether playing acoustic twisted lullabies or in-your-face electric hollers the lyrics catch you off guard with their openness, black humour and off-the-wall themes.
