In Nottingham, Nic Armstrong found other musicians inspired by the sounds of the early 1960s.
Armstrong and his band from Nottingham have enough flair and imagination to be among the finest rock and roll bands heard today. Their sound harkens back to a pre-psychedelic time when rock had a more melodic bent.
In addition to Armstrong on harmonica and guitar, the Thieves are: Jonny Aitken (drums); Shane Lawlor (bass); and Glynn Wedgewood (guitar). All the members contribute to the songwriting duties, and they are also known to switch instruments on occasion.
