Biography

Thurman were a band heralding from Oxfordshire (UK) comprising of brothers Nicholas Kenny, (Lead Vocals + Guitar) Simon Kenny (Bass + Additional vocals) plus Paul Disley (Drums). Heavily associated with the Britpop movement rumours circulated at the time that they had originally been a heavy metal band called ‘To Die For,’ who changed their style of music as so to be snapped up by a record label. Their chirpy 60s influenced sound is one produced by a huge number of artists in 1995 at the height of Britpop mania. Their sole album ‘Lux’ is entertaining, but lacks depth and plagiarises a number of songs, most noticeably ‘Children of the Revolution’ by T-Rex on the track ‘Loaded.’ Perhaps with less pressure to be totally ‘Britpop’ then their natural talent may have shone through more, evident on the final track of their album ‘Flavour explosion’ Despite some positive reviews at the time the album can be seen now as style over substance, leaving Thurman to go down with numerous other bands associated with Britpop who were in the minor leagues, such as These Animal Men, Pimlico (band), Powder (band), Octopus (band) and Mantaray.

Following Thurman’s demise, the Kenny brothers went on to form a band called Four Storeys along with drummer Dan Goddard (ex-Nubiles) Following a single release of a track entitled ‘Castaway’ in 1999 the band released an album entitled ‘Betting is Now’ in 2002, receiving critical acclaim from Steve Lamacq and the NME no less, who had derided Thurman’s career. The future of this band is unclear.
