Romford’s Corporal Machine & The Bombers’ debut album mixes twin guitar and brass knees-ups with mischievous gin-soaked kitchen sink dramas. When they first opened for The Television Personalities, Dan Treacy joked “you lot look like you’ve just walked out the Job Centre”! At the time transferable skills included gravedigging, welding and Newham Council refuse collection. Their performance that evening secured them regular TVPs support slots.
