Tin Spirits

Tin Spirits first got together in Swindon UK in the summer of 2008, when Daniel Steinhardt from TheGigRig invited former XTC guitarist (and musical hero) Dave Gregory to a local studio to video record an ‘amp shoot-out’ with Dan’s band The Hi-Fidels, comprising bassist Mark Kilminster and drummer Doug Mussard.

All enjoyed the experience so much they decided to take things a stage further and rehearse some of the more challenging music they’d grown up listening to but never had the chance to perform.

Tin Spirits soon assembled a strong repertoire of guitar-orientated prog covers, together with a few XTC songs, and began playing gigs in 2009 to very positive audiences.
Today, with the impending release of their debut offering ‘Wired to Earth’, their star is very much in the ascendant.

Dave Gregory (guitar) was a member of UK band XTC for 19 years, performing on the hits ‘Making Plans For Nigel’, ‘Senses Working Overtime’ and 12 studio albums, including the band’s alter-egos The Dukes Of Stratosphear.

He is probably more familiar to Marillionaires through his work on Steve Hogarth’s 1996 album ‘Ice Cream Genius’, and as a member of Steve’s legendary h-Band. With few interests outside music, Dave continues to work as the spirit moves him, recently playing sessions for Bournemouth prog-heads Big Big Train, and writing and recording at home for Tin Spirits - the band, he says, which has saved his musical life.
