The Boy Least Likely To are Jof (lyrics, vocals) and Peter (music, instruments). They met when they were still at school and grew up together in the small Buckinghamshire village of Wendover. A place they describe as being "like a cross between Trumpton and Sunnydale. On the surface it seems idyllic. All flowers and candyfloss. But underneath there is a darkness. The flowers have teeth and the candyfloss is laced". They spent their teenage years scouring countryside car boot sales for rare Dexy's seven inches and Lee Hazlewood albums. Reading Ted Hughes, Anne Sexton and Douglas Coupland. Watching John Hughes films and old videos of Top Of The Pops. All the time putting together a collection of weird and wonderful instruments found in second hand shops, craft fairs and the Early Learning Centre. A collection that would be used in all its eclectic glory when it came to making the album. Strongly influenced by the independent bands of the 1980s, the songs bring to mind the post punk playfulness of Altered Images, Aztec Camera, Dexy’s Midnight Runners, and Orange Juice. A charming rural pop sound with banjos, glockenspiels, recorders and fiddles thumping away in a quirky indie folk style. The album, 'The Best Party Ever', was recorded in the heart of the English countryside on a dusty old eight track machine with seminal producer Bobby Charm. The music is heartfelt and uplifting with unique and sweetly eccentric lyrics, often giving sad undertones to what on the surface appear to be simple upbeat pop songs. There is an awareness of mortality, of the onset of responsibilities, and a loss of innocence. Relationships forged in adolescence come to an unexpected end, and childhood friends move on and away. Above all, The Boy Least Likely To understand that all the best pop moments are about love, loss and distance.... they make disco music with a country heart...... sublime pop moments tinged with an English folk eccentricity.... sad songs that can't help but make you smile.... this is the sound of their summer.... this is the best party ever.
