On accordions, fiddle, guitar, banjo and ukulele, Way Out West play and sing all the old songs – some going back as far as the 1960s. Discover the country roots of the Pet Shop Boys, the folk origins of Rizzle Kicks and The Cure, the big band swing tendencies of David Bowie, then thrill to the biggest secret of all; what Ultravox sounded like when Julie Andrews was still in the line-up.
