Cranky George: Los Angeles based Cranky George have brought together members and musical styles from both sides of the Atlantic to create a unique take on folk-influenced indie rock that is as special and diverse as the members themselves. Cranky George is made up of: James Fearnley – co-founder and accordionist for The Pogues; the Mulroney brothers, Kieran and Dermot who play a variety of string instruments; bass player Brad Wood, who has produced records for artist from the likes of The Bangles, Ben Lee, Pete Yorn, and Veruca Salt; and percussionist Sebastian Sheehan Visconti, a sound designer and sound effects editor who notably worked on the television series The Muppets and The Flash.
Cranky George’s full-length debut — Fat Lot of Good — is diverse in style and features common threads such as Cranky George’s signature folk-inspired instrumentation — including accordion, violin, mandolin, acoustic guitars and ukuleles.
