For those of you who are blissfully unaware of who Bunting and Frolics are, let them introduce themselves in their own words.

INTRODUCING BUNTING AND FROLICS

Having both previously enjoyed* solo careers, Bob Ashworth and Martin Gittins – ‘Bunting and Frolics’ – have been inflicting themselves on an unsuspecting public for more than two decades.
Despite repeated demands they continue to make sporadic sorties into the world of entertainment on the pretext of supplying value for money and at the same time stretching their niggardly repertoire to its creaking limits.
During their meteoric rise to oblivion they have harboured delusions of adequacy far beyond their abilities, to the bemusement of all who witness their stumbling progress through a performance.

RECENT REVIEWS:
Police Gazette – ‘If you encounter these two so-called entertainers DO NOT APPROACH THEM. Run Away Very Fast.’
Allotment owners’ weekly – ‘I played their music to my marrows and produced a spectacular crop of courgettes.’
NME (North Manchester Echo) – ‘In musical terms Bunting and Frolics can best be described as Dung Beetles – they are both very good at going through the motions.’
Atheist’s Digest – ‘Unbelievable!’

*Bob and Martin enjoyed them – audience reactions are not recorded.
