Who Are Who's Afear'd?

Who's Afear'd are a West Country band with Dorset in their blood. They take their name from the 1970 Yetties album of the same name. This three-piece band started life with Kevicious! on singing, 'Mystery Boy' Dave on guitars and Russell T Giraffe on drums and kazoo; but have made a few changes along the way. Cranmore took over on drums in 2008, and Devon-based guitar whizz Matt temporarily replaced Dave in 2009 - only to be swiftly replaced by Keston.

Inspired covers, cursing and racket is what they claim to be all about, and they describe their music as sounding like 'the Cerne Giant and your mum after a gallon of scrumpy in a hedge down Lytchett way!'. In reality, many of their songs show a political and social concience at odds with their sound - songs like Cider Riot, Borderline and Mr Sandbanks reveal a maturity beyond their tender years...and then they go and spoil the illusion by writing songs like My Willy's Getting Hard! Check out the band's MySpace page for some audio clips of their music.

The band split in 2010 with Kev and Keston going on to form Skimmity Hitchers, while Cran joined The Boothill All Stars.
