Songwriting brothers Andy & Dave Macleod made their first foray into the music industry when The Office creator Ricky Gervais managed their fledgling group The Pointy Birds, which lead to recording sessions and gigs alongside Britpop luminaries such as Suede and Echobelly. This fleeting brush with fame and celebrity eventually became the basis for the best selling memoir and live show Anoint My Head.
Thereafter Andy & Dave teamed up with French drummer Guillaume Boisselet, guitarist Sean Phillips and Phil ‘The Albino Priest’ Ward – on loan from highly acclaimed electronic music act Lo Fidelity Allstars – to form Big Slice.
Combining classic pop tunes with soaring guitars, reflective lyrics and a dash of psychedelic Moog keyboard they released their first album Don’t Mind If I Do in 2020.
Mastered by Chris Hornsby of Modern Hinterland and released by legendary indie veterans Label Fandango, the finely crafted songs took inspiration from a range of pop and alt rock acts such as Orange Juice, Echo & the Bunnymen, Happy Mondays, Talk Talk, Daft Punk, Kate Bush, Pavement, Blur and The Human League.
Follow up album One For The Road was recorded in London across 2022 with production and additional vocals from Nainesh Shah of Flotation Toy Warning. Featuring more vintage pop songwriting it expanded on the original Big Slice sound with trademark angular guitars and synthetic dreamscape sounds.
One For The Road then …!
