|Will Tyler - Jungle Doctors|
|Louis Watton - drums|
Formed in late 2011 out of boredom during school lunchtimes, their name is inspired by Louis Watton's (JD drummer) dad, who's own band was called ‘Jungle doctor spots a leopard’ after a popular children’s book series.
Following the release of their first EP in July 2012, the band has caught the eye of kingmakers Tom Robinson and Gary Crowley at BBC Introducing. In April 2014 they released a free download single ‘Dry’, taken from their ‘Open Up’ EP. Both this and their follow up 'Falling' garnered healthy air time in the following months.
Here at Under The Bridge they started with the aforementioned 'Falling', blowing off the cobwebs in a matter of seconds to give a buoyant and effervescing performance, followed in this short set by 'Late' .Usually it would be the handsome prow of such a fine vessel that took the attention, particularly when under a four guitar assault but it was the drums of Louis Watton who beached the song on our shores.
Normal service was resumed on their current single 'Settle' which fizzed with the vocal of Sam Budd and guitar of Angus McGuinness. In recent weeks Jungle Doctors have supported The Cribs in their own backyard, the confines of which wont hold this burgeoning group for much longer.
