The cover of Thunderer And Excelsior, Silvery's 14-track debut, features the silhouette of a gas mask-wearing man in a bowler hat with a gun and a lance sitting on what looks suspiciously like a polo horse. Yes, they're that wacky! Silvery are unabashed about acknowledging their eclectic musical references – 'from Bowie, Blur, Sparks to XTC'. They could just as easily have mentioned Ten Pole Tudor, Madness and even Nirvana (assuming the gurus of grunge had ever toyed with the idea of Happy Hardcore).

Anyway, 2008's CLASSIC debut album. The blog of much respected London band SILVERY. Pieces of information you might like if things like this are the sort of thing you like. Thunderer & Excelsior Song By Song. Posted on March 11, 2017March 16, 2017 by silverytheband. Like the ‘Railway Architecture’ and ‘Etiqutte’ discussions here and here, this would’ve worked nicely as an audio documentary with lots of demo snippets etc. but who has the time? Maybe I will do that one day. Perhaps picture me saying all this sat at a mixing desk in a darkened studio. A cracking debut coupling.
