Joe Symes & The Loving Kind
Joe Symes & The Loving Kind are not a band to do things by half measures. Constantly gigging the UK and sharing the bill with acts including The Blockheads, The Christians, Steve Cradock (Ocean Colour Scene/Paul Weller), Space, Ian McNabb, Dodgy, XTC, Bloc Party, Starsailor, The Farm, Republica, headlining Noel Gallagher’s Aftershow Party twice, doing radio sessions nationally and internationally, alongside worldwide magazine interviews and reviews, the word “Pro-active” certainly comes to mind.
Having released one album, two stand alone singles, and a two part E.P, the band are in the process of recording their long awaited second L.P; a record Joe, Colin, and Andy describe as “heavy pop.”
Usually playing gigs with full electric guitars, bass and drums, this power trio have also shown they can strip it all back, playing acoustic shows that are worthy of MTV Unplugged; a versatility the band take great pride in
