Elk are very much a new band, made out of a few tattered old hats. Over the last couple of years, each stitch of these poor boys creative lives had carefully and maticulously been unpicked, the various components (brim, ribbon, cardboard, wicker, whatever) were sent back to the factories in Luton and Stockport and largely forgotten about.

That was until recently, when Glenn and Ritch (who the more astute of you might have noticed, played the characters of the same name in the bands Andy, Glenn and Ritch and The Green Acre) met up with their old friend Tom and decided to dig out the dusty craft box. For months on end they practiced their art in a secret location. Some say it was a disused pigment factory in Lincolnshire, once famed for it’s ability to make the natural resource known as ‘white’. Others hark at this and state they’ve merely been ‘dossing’ in a ramshackle unit off the A180, with only Super Nintendo and cans of Tennents for inspiration.

Where they craft and how they do it, no one will ever know. What we do know is that they are about to emerge, all three of them, proudly wearing the largest, coolest and most exotic top hat you have ever fucking seen.
