Fit and the Conniptions are easily the third or fourth best bass / viola / drums trio in London at the moment, although this may change as the viola player has got really into banjo lately. Their long-awaited fourth album, Old Blue Witch, will be released on Bandcamp on 1st May 2017, and features guest appearances from Dana Immanuel (Stolen Band) and Whiskey Mick Rowan of the Popes, as well as artwork by Molly Crabapple.
Dana Immanuel is a banjo-toting, whiskey-drinking, poker-playing singer-songwriter currently operating from a north London hideout from which emerges a sound more usually associated with the bayou, triple filtered through bourbon, washboard, and a touch of alt-country eccentricity. Dana and her all-girl Stolen Band have been getting feet stomping across the UK folk, blues, Americana and rock scenes since November 2015.
