Biography

Vocals, guitars, keyboards - Tom McCreery
Bass - Ants McCreery
Drums, percussion - Tom Heaney

Not young virgins of life Tom, Ants and Tom have lived a bit, been through some terrible shit, got through it to be hit with shit again and got through it. Their music reflects a maturity, humour and honesty that only a bit of experience can bring. It’s a little bit like shagging - it gets better, dirtier and ultimately more satisfying the older and more experienced you get - like most things in life. “Getting to where we are has been the hardest, most brutal and soul destroying thing I’ve ever done - but it’s also been the most fun, the most exciting and most satisfying thing I’ve ever done” says singer Tom, “I live music, sleep music - everything I see or hear or experience usually ends up coming out in my lyrics and music. If I didn’t do this I’d be in big trouble I think.”Oswald say what they want with such a stance that you want to get behind them and say “you know what, fuck this!”. Songs like We Are Not Dirt embody this perfectly being a song that makes you sit back and think bloody hell what am I doing? There’s no bullshit in Oswald’s music or lyrics, from ‘Flying To The Ground’ to ‘Bangin On Those Drums’ to ‘Home’ to ‘Parliament’ to ‘Long Road To Run Down’ to ‘Sleep’ to ‘Pickpocket’ to ‘Rubbish Britain’ this band writes as people, for the people.The band has just completed writing a new album under the working title of ‘We Are Not Dirt.’ With instant hooks, heartfelt and at times vitriolic lyrics, Oswald have written an album that is a statement.
