6:00 pm - 11:59 pm
When sparkly doomed indie dance band ‘Vivarama’ imploded, Tony Sherrard, Sally-Ann Parker and Robin Dallaway carried on clubbing, dancing and writing songs.
Rob had been a founder member of jazz-punk collossals ‘The Cravats’ and indie-beat combo ‘The Very Things’.
Rob and Tony dragged Ms. Parker out of the pub, plugged her in, cranked her up and started digging her a pool. And it filled up with 1970’s soul and funk, the Coen Brothers, Be-Bop, David Lynch, groovy Californian Pop, Miles Davis.

The White Feather Collective
We are The White Feather Collective. We are a British 4 piece Surf/Psych band based in Malvern, at the heart of the English countryside. The band consists of drums, bass, electric guitar and vocals/acoustic guitar/ Harmonica The band is able to present a high-energy performance, incorporating many aspects that made the late 1960s the golden era for music. The sound of band could be considered close to that of ‘The Rolling Stones’, ‘The Doors’, ‘Peter Green’s Fleetwood Mac’ and perhaps ‘The Black Keys’ The White Feather Collective aims to boast an immersive, life changing live set; along with well considered recordings that take elements from an era of music where it didn’t matter what one looked like. The band would like to tour the world encouraging expression through art and music, leaving a lasting impression on all that come across us.
