A Fool and His Money is a three piece alternative rock band in their early 20s from the South Wales area. Formed from the long-time musical relationship between Drummer Alistair Morgan and Guitarist Michael Buffery, the band came into being when Lead Vocalist and Bassist Greg Williams answered an ad placed online in spring 2014. Over the course of a few months, the band wrote, rehearsed and recorded their first EP in Alistair’s garage on a tiny budget with only four microphones. Taking in the ideals of classic rock bands of the 60s and 70s the recordings were done with no digital editing and as live as possible, allowing the sound of the band to come through instead of the sound of a computer. In the coming months the band will begin performing live sets in the local Cardiff area with the same passion and intensity that their recordings have, and will be looking to release more material in early 2015 • Mike Buffery and Alistair Morgan playing together for five years • Greg Williams answered ad and joined as singer & bassist • Music reminiscent of the 90s alternative rock scene (Red Hot Chili Peppers, Rage Against the Machine, Foo Fighters, Soundgarden, Alice in chains) • As well as ideals and sounds of artists of the 70s (Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix, Yes, Early U2, The Police) • Recorded 1st EP in an acoustically untreated garage with 4 microphones and practically no editing • Recorded as if recording live to tape • Believe in recording what the band sounds like and not the sound of a machine • Distinct sound that is cross-genre
