When Gregory Webster’s 80s outfit Razorcuts hit the scene, their curious collision of influences - from the Buzzcocks to Joy Division to the Beau Brummels - was essentially a happy accident. That could never be said of Sportique, Gregory’s band since 1997, who artfully give a nod and a wink (and occasionally a baseball bat around the head) to a wide variety of influences from the 60s through the 80s and beyond. Whilst the indiepop heritage of the line-up (Sir Mark from the TVPs and McTells plus Amelia & Rob from Talulah Gosh, Heavenly, Marine Research, and Tender Trap) resonates throughout, Sportique have slowly steered the template into more experimental waters, both musically and lyrically.
