They are joined on their debut album by Andy Tween on drums and percussion who has toured and recorded with folk artist and Mercury Prize winner Seth Lakeman.

The name Counter's Creek refers to one of London's old rivers that used to flow from Kensal Green into the Thames. It has gradually disappeared over the last two centuries, first converted into a canal after which parts of it were filled in. These rivers still exist in some form underneath London’s busy streets and like the new weird and wonderful musical projects in the city, bubble up to the surface every now and then...
