Mr Ben & The Bens
Who Knows Jenny Jones

Mr Ben and the Bens is a man called Ben (naturally) who used to live in Lancaster (and so is mates with the Lovely Eggs) and now resides in Sheffield which is well known for its indie guitar scene. This album shows Mr Ben taking his indie folk song craft into more electronic areas and is a concept album about a failure of a girl who gets abducted by aliens and comes back as a disco dancer. Interesting.

Mr Ben & The Bens
Nova Scotia

I do hope that Mr. Ben and The Bens take their name from my favourite ‘70s kids show. Although, the Lancaster band are a rather young looking bunch and one of them is called Ben, so I’m guessing not. Their new single, Nova Scotia, was inspired by YouTube footage of a music festival in Halifax, Nova Scotia attended by people from literally everywhere and the idea of small places becoming centres for great things happening. Orange vinyl 7" on Bingo Records, limited to 300 copies.

Mr Ben & The Bens
The Happy Shopper EP

Lancastrian oddball Mr. Ben is a favourite of The Lovely Eggs and has toured with The Wave Pictures. That’s probably enough information for you to know if this one’s for you or not. If not - we get it, zany twee-pop isn’t for everyone. Personally though, we’re keen. Along with backing-band The Bens, the singer turns in four bits of charming folksy niceness on The Happy Shopper EP.
