Yet, Littl’ans, whose name is Cockney vernacular meaning “Little Ones,” soldier on gallantly. After all, in rock and roll the chaos is part of the deal. Five in number - singer and guitarist Andrew Aveling, drummer Ben, guitarist Alex Mahood, bassist Pedro, rhythm guitarist Ryan Blagrove and tambourine player Ronnie Joice - Littl’ans have had a convoluted history. Aveling used to be in electro duo Add N to (X), then an East London band called The White Sport with guitarist Patrick Walden and drummer Adam Ficek, until Peter Doherty pinched both Walden and Ficek to form Babyshambles (Doherty’s guest vocal on Their Way was his way of repaying the debt to Aveling). These days, Littl’ans erratically traverse the country playing doo-wop-influenced pop with the dazed, dark charm of Syd Barrett or Nick Drake. It’s surprisingly delicate music for such a hard-living band - but then romance often exists in squalor.
