Any band that considers they should be described as having a melting pot of ideas and influences would do well to listen to Seas of Mirth. These guys went out and got the biggest pot available, melted everything from sea shanties to gypsy swing, chucked in a codpiece from Jethro Tull, squeezed the creative juices of the Moulettes, distilled the humour of the Divine Comedy into it and sprinkled a tuft of hair from the Three Daft Monkeys over the ensuing strange brew. But they weren’t content with that so they melted the bloody pot, and the cooker and the whole house around it.
