Profile
Frobisher Neck is the recently-born brainchild of Tony Swettenham, a London / Home Counties-based keyboardist and dabbler in other instruments. After many a year of writing tunes, recording, playing in bands and other collaborations (including a sizeable stint as part of 1980s/90s East London-based psych-punk-prog-pop combo The History of Gardening), he has come up with this, a new vehicle for his current output of instrumental (and some say quirky) psychedelic folk-prog-pop-electronica.
