The Woodlice



The Woodlice play ace punk folk pop.

The band started off as troubadours and then evolved into a punkier pop outfit lying somewhere between Violent Femmes and leftfield folk. Jet McDonald on lead vocals and guitar. Simon Van der Linden on Bass. Mark Gonsalves on drums.

Jet and the band have toured nationally and had airtime on BBC 6 Music. 

The band has benefited at different times from Dan Weltman (violinist, all round instrumentalist, songwriter, producer and member of Snails) Virpi Kettu virtuoso Finnish violinist and Hannah Porter part of the Porter Super Folk family and Joe Medler, percussionist, swing dancer and storytelling impressario.
