The Hutton Enquiry
The Hutton Enquiry
At this time, Stuart Philips joined the duo and the band became a trio. Leaning towards an even heavier comedic and electronic side, the band released their 2nd album 'Welcome to the fur-q bbq' to an even bigger critical acclaim. It was at this stage the bands popularity started to rocket and several bands in and around the Guildford scene started mentioning them in interviews and asking for support slots. However, the success didn't get to them and they began creating their 3rd album 'growth stages of the vesselis humanus'. This was to be a highly ambitious album, with a severe dark overtone dabbed throughout, perhaps an indication as to the state of mind of the 3.
It was halfway through recording this album that the band met their 4th and final band member, Phil Jelley, an experienced and talented DJ. With Phil on board the album relied heavily on complex beats and loops and was again met with critical success. The 4th and final album was a difficult one to record, with inter-band relationships showing cracks. However, the band pulled through and released 'Baby Need Beats', a complex and dark record which was almost an audio documentary of the feelings of the bands dark state of mind and strained relationships with each other. The band temporarily split soon after the album was released, and the members of said band resented that. Communications between the ex-members were at best strained and difficult.
Inevitably, the ex-members began writing and recording for themselves and this resulted in 3 different artists being borne; Johhny Shoebox (the alias of Dan Avery), Long Reign The Casio (Stuart Phillips project) and Can Yoy Fly, Bobby? (Wayne Chuters project). The most prolific of the three was Johnny Shoebox, owing to the fact their 2006 album was the first to be released. After a short break, relations between the ex-members of the Hutton Enquiry had improved dramatically and it was decided the band would reform. Albeit with some members taking more of a part time approach with recording the new album. Wayne Chuter, in particular, would barely have any input on the sessions because he was concentrating more on his Can you fly, bobby? project. As of now, the band are still recording and mastering new songs for this forthcoming album. Read more on Last.fm.
