The Poppermost exist to remind us of a time when the world shook to the giddy monophonic thunk of Merseybeat, to a time of Dansettes and desert boots, when R&B didn’t mean Rhianna and Beyonce and an MP3 was Harold Wilson and a couple of his Westminster mates out on the razz down Carnaby Street.

Borne out of a one-man mission with his roots firmly planted in all things Fab – head Poppermost Joe Kane has gone the whole hog by recording his own music so in thrall to his idols as to be genuine rather than pastiche. Utilising an array of FAB instruments, microphones and recording techniques, all glued together by bargain basement analogue junk - 'shitty is pretty', says Joe, your innermost Fab Four desires will be sated by an affected Lennon-like 'you wanted the werld and I gave you the werld' here, a woody McCartney bassline there, a multitude of 12 string chiming George middle eights, with everything held in place by a Ringo-perfect compressed backbeat.

A collection of simple, uplifting pop songs with a positive message. Short, sweet and exactly as they used to make ‘em, Hits To Spare does exactly what it says on the cover.
