Syd Arthur

Music, Rock and indie

Psychedelic jazz from the Syd Arthur boys.

Formed in Canterbury by brothers Liam and Joel Magill, Fred Rother and Raven Bush back in 2003, Syd Arthur is an English psych jazz outfit initially making music under the monikers of Grumpy Jumper and then Monshka.

Now that the current name's stuck, they're busy establishing it as one that recongifures contemporary psychedelia through heartfelt lyricism, layered harmonies and general boundary pushing.
