WHO ARE THEY? WHAT DO THEY WANT? WHY ARE THEY HERE? HOW LONG WILL THEY STAY?
We may never know
But we do know that they have all been around for a while on the East Anglian music scene in bands such as Erick (Brian), Caught in the Zip (CITZ) (Dan), The Corruptors (Neil and Brian), YasYasYas and Lost Highway (Neil and Nig).
The first known instance of Frogworm occurred in 2009, emerging from a collaboration on the musical Sag the mu between Brian (music) and Nig (words) with help from Neil and Rosa. Their first gig as a foursome was at
The Albatros, where they realised that perhaps there was an audience out there for their kind of music.
They have always played their own stuff and continue to develop new material . The repertoire grows and their sound evolves, lately boosted by the arrival of Dan on drums.
Check out the samples on the music page.
Guitar, bass, harmonica and drums? Must be a blues band. Not at all. The twelve bar is one bar Frogworm steer clear of. You can hear blues in some of their music, but it’s not the usual kind of thing.
