The Bug Club
The Bug Club’s name does a good job of introducing the band and their music: a tight-knit, collaborative effort focussed on telling tales of the everyday that we often take for granted, shot through with humour and riffs-a-plenty. Comprising the creative trio of Sam Willmett (guitar/vocals), Tilly Harris (bass/vocals) & Dan Matthew (drums), The Bug Club formed in 2016 in the little-known rock n’ roll hotbed that is Caldicot, Monmouthshire.
The band were picked up by Bingo Records and released their first single ‘We Don’t Need Room For Lovin’ in Feb 2021. It garnered immediate acclaim, with BBC 6 Music’s resident tastemaker Marc Riley. The announcement of the EP Launching Moondream One followed. First and foremost a live band, the band record as a group as quickly as possible, capturing the energy and sound of the gigs that make them such a popular fixture on the live circuit.
