Johnny5thWheel&thecowards: "Nancy" b/w "In My Laboratory"

Johnny5thWheel&thecowards (yes, that's one word) are an UK steampunk band who like to dress for the occasion. It is a collective, with songwriter Richard Lomax as the sole permanent member.

On their new single Nancy b/w In My Laboratory, they mix vaudeville with alt.folk tunings. Johnny5thWheel&thecowards sound like an old fashioned cabaret band tearing it up on a tiny outside stage that has been set up on the lawn in front of a dilapidated mansion. The suns sets, there's plenty of booze and the clouds are coming in. Something nasty is bound In the Laboratory of the owner who seemed a bit odd but harmless. For now everything seems quite alright. O, and the fine young lady's name isn't Nancy.
