The Avon Guard is Dominic Silvani (vocals and lyrics) and Andy Mitty (music, artwork and photography). Following a close friendship spanning twenty years, this band represents the first time the duo have recorded together.
Dominic was vocalist/lyricist for 90s Midlands band Penelope’s Web who released a single ‘Potboiler’ on Cherry Red Records. Andy was the frontman for Transistor, a Camden based indie glam band.
‘Forget’ is a record that sits somewhere between Nick Cave and Lloyd Cole, it’s an accomplished debut from a band that has taken twenty years to form, but The Avon Guard have certainly proved to be worth the wait.
