Kite Collectors: Man in the Paisley Shirt

on February 3, 2018

perf6.500x6.500.inddWith my collection of short fiction Paisley Shirt going to print shortly, I wondered if there were musicians also inspired by the same piece of clothing. A search of YouTube identified two tracks with my favourite being Man in the Paisley Shirt” by The Kite Collectors from their 2013 album Mildred’s Tree.

On the website, I learnt about The Kite Collector’s music:

Known for well-crafted songs with a strong lyrical content, The Kite Collectors were formed in 2013. Hailing from the South West of England, the band takes their inspiration from the mod sub-culture, early psychedelia and garage rock. The resultant mix of influences and attitudes is a quality blend of infectious melodies and energy that literally fizzles in the ears. Imagine the love child of the Small Faces and the Kinks smacking their head against a wall whilst listening to Medway Garage Rock and the Who!

Have a listen and see what you think.

You can find out more The Kite Collectors at Paisley Records.
