The 'Big' Society

Formed originally in 2008 as 1980s-influenced synthpop/country duo "Breaking Communications", they restructured themselves in 2011 as (with a huge dose of irony) "The 'Big' Society".

Band members:

ALEXANDRA TOVEY : Vox, Assorted Devices
"DEEP THOUGHT" : Everything we can't do on stage...
RANDOM DENT : Vox, Percussion
TEE : Various Guitars


We're available for weddings, birthdays and bar mitzvahs with an eclectic mix of self-penned songs and unique covers.

With numerous - well-attended - gigs in London, most recently headlining at the world-famous Royal Vauxhall Tavern

On a mission to invoke the 'spirit of Red Wedge' using their sweet vocal harmonies and synthpop/electronica, with occasional noisy guitars and swearing...
