Biography

The Tumbledryer Babies are a minimalist indie band from Southend-on-Sea, a seaside town near London, England. Originally a solo act formed in 2007, the band has since expanded to include two bass guitars, a drum machine, a stylophone and kazoos. They are known for prolific recorded output.

The band have recorded a 7” with Kramer (Galaxie 500, Jeffrey Lewis) and an EP with Paul Leary (Butthole Surfers, Sublime, Meat Puppets, Daniel Johnston). They have opened for Theoretical Girl, Television Personalities, Bearsuit, Kunt and the Gang, Tiger MCs, Bearcraft and The Lovely Eggs.

Influences include Florence Foster Jenkins, Leonard Cohen and Captain Beefheart. They have been compared to Darren Hayman, Daniel Johnston, Young Marble Giants, Syd Barrett, Roger McGough, Steve Harley and the Grease soundtrack.
