A unique and captivating singer/songwriter from the South East. Her songs are a rare concoction of dark observation, perceptive lyrics, catchy melodies and a caustic edge. Add rich vocals and unique guitar style for a quirky and compelling performance.
“like a primitive Talking Heads played by people who’ve never heard Talking Heads.”
Guitarist Nick Jacobs formed the Ba in Winchester in Autumn 1976 as an alchemical synthesis of his two great musical loves: Dr Feelgood – jagged, driving riffs – and Syd Barrett – fractured, psychedelic guitar and quirky, personal lyrics. He was joined by Kevin Burrows (bass), Sandy Sanderson (drums), Kevin Rayner (guitar) and Mark Hudson (vocals) – all students, like him, at Winchester School of Art. Now they're a back and playing songs from their recent release Forty Years in The Bunker.

THE BA ON

"Dear Macey Hobdell,
Thank you very much for the CD by The Ba, Forty Years In The Bunker, which reached me via our UK offices. I enjoyed it very much and will play a track from it on my Tuesday Late Show on the 21st May, just after 10pm.
