“The origins of the Last Pedestrians lie in the Mid 70’s Nottingham groups ‘PLUMMET AIRLINES’ and ‘GAFFA’. The latter playing innovative pop jazz and the former (signed to Stiff Records) playing twisted pub rock. In the early 80’s an amalgam of both groups ‘THE ATOMS’ mutated through various projects, ‘LEFT WING REDNECKS’ and ‘THE CRABS’ and then ‘THE LOOSE CANNONS’.
Then, in The Turf Tavern in Nottingham, a Commuter (Harry Stephenson) was joined by the Last Pedestrian (Wayne D. Evans) and the band in its current form started to emerge. Gradually other musicians abandoned their vehicles and started to walk side by side with Harry and Wayne. Now the Last Pedestrians is a strong five-piece band howling at the moon and whispering to the stars and telling it how it is… so ‘TEXT YOUR GRANNIES!’ and ‘LET’S GET NAKED AND BOOGIE!'”
