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. Read more on Last.fm
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. A statement of life, of hardships and reality. In fact that is the key thing - this album is real, organic and honest. Oswald are real and credible and documenting our times through their music.

A true band of the people. "Sometimes people talk about being in a band like it's a hobby or something - I cannot explain what music and this band means to me. This is a way of life, and hopefully people get that about us and where we're coming from" says Ants.Vocalist Tom wears his heart on his sleeve lyrically and delivers passionate, at times brutally harsh and honest not without satire outlooks on society and the struggles we all face every day. With fantastic melodies, guitars that roll then scorch and grooves that draw you in this album bleeds reality, passion and soul.At this point the band has written 13 tracks for this album, although it looks as though another couple could be added before they head off to the studio to record it.

In true Oswald style the band are gigging the album from May 1st 2010 through till June 2010 before they begin the recording. As drummer Tom says "How many times have you written an album or ep then gigged it and thought shit wish we could go and record the album again!" How true. 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.
