Singer and drummer, Tom Cridland, and his girlfriend and fellow singer, Debs Marx, met piano player, Nick Whitehead backstage at an Elton John gig, when visiting their friend, Elton's longtime drummer, Nigel Olsson. It wasn't long before they formed The Tomicks, and Cridland and Whitehead began writing songs together. They played ten demos to Simply Red's Kenji Suzuki and he liked what he heard, coming with the band to make their first self-titled album at The Village in Los Angeles. This has just been released and the band are back in the studio making a follow up with Earl Slick, David Bowie's guitarist since the 1970s. The Tomicks' live set combines original material with covers by the Eagles, The Beatles, ELO, Queen and Fleetwood Mac.
