1852 (Wilmott Dixon Interiors)

Band History

The record company insisted on a world tour to promote our latest record, “Appetite for Construction”, so in the words of David Coverdale, here we go again.

Band Members

Enrique Soler - Lead Guitar

Last year, Enrique played the guitar with a drill while wearing a mask with LED flashing lights. 

For this year’s performance we’ve heard him talking about jumping backwards from the stage through a fire hoop while playing a solo on a rubber chicken.

Luckily we have other guitar players in the band.


Alan De Lacy - Vocals & Guitar

A long time ago in a land far, far away, a lowly architect dreamt of morbidly dark melodic compositions .... Soon after, having been expelled from Ireland for crimes against music, Alan washed up on the shores of this island and immediately turned his back on his previous rock god status to design manage the stairway to heaven rather than try to play it. An entirely mediocre guitarist with a modicum of limited vocal skills, he is best suited to stand at the front and hog all the limelight, whilst leaving the talent and skill to the musicians (and drummer) in the band  


Duncan Booth - Bass

Having unsuccessfully pursued a career in classical music (trumpet) he decided to take up a mate's offer to play bass in what probably turned out to be one of the worst bands of the BO's. He describes his playing as competent rather than flashy and still gigs on occasion with whatever band will have him. While he is a confirmed Rock God (in his head) he decided that a proper job was preferable to living in a cardboard box and thus a second career in construction beckoned. In his spare time he makes inappropriate jokes about drummers. 


Jon Meeks - Drums

Jon has successfully been kicked out of two rock bands based in the leafy suburbs of North West London. Having been mediocre at the guitar, and appalling at drums, he is eyeing up this opportunity to win a hat-trick of personal failures.


Richard Purcell - Guitar

At 18 Richard left the shores of the UK to find fame in LA’s sunset strip.  Unfortunately, fame didn’t come but he picked up a cool Les Paul!!


Patrice Sweeney - Vocals

Patrice is one of those annoying people that like all genres of music. However, on the rare occasions that she goes running she blasts bands such as Audiomachine and Two Steps from Hell.

They make trailer music for movies. 

Patrice acknowledges that she’s weird.
