Misty's Big Adventure/ Chris T - T
London, 229

Article written by Neil W - Jan 3, 2008

Wielding the political torch of Billy Bragg, Chris TT is a one man, one guitar assault on the world. Which is lucky because apparently the aforementioned Mr Bragg has "gone fishing in his 4x4" according to the song Preaching to the Converted. What a man to take over the mantle.

Misty’s Big Adventure on the other hand are an anomaly in music and they’re magnetic, visually exciting and a joy to watch. The melodies are catchy like nursery rhymes and you could say they’re like Dexy’s Midnight Runners with a Joe Meek shaped rocket up the back side.

If the lyrics reflected the music, trench coat adorning ring leader Grand Master Gareth would be jovially singing about jumping around on bouncy castles, skipping in a field of daisies and all sorts of fun frolics, but, the lyrics as they are you wonder how he manages to make it through the day.

"why do we bother, why do we try, I don’t know why, but we do"

Each and every seemingly jolly track is peppered with tales of loss, longing and generally pretty miserable things. You always get an underlying optimism within these songs though and the music being as chirpy as it is makes you shrug your shoulders before jumping around like a lunatic. Yes, life is bitter sweet but, as they so plainly put it, "keep moving, keep moving, keep moving, moving on"

Misty’s Big Adventure recently reached the dizzy heights of fame by switching on the christmas lights in Birmingham with none other than McFly. Just imagine what'll happen if they become more famous, they could well be playing T4 on the Beach in Great Yarmouth with Girls Aloud!
