Our new single Nil By Mouth is now available on Spotify and in all the other places....
It’s a love song and lament for the NHS, written in 2018 and recorded in very different times. Speak up for what matters before it’s too late!

Joan the Wad - named after a torch bearing queen of the piskies - are a collection of Pennine outliers; cooking up a genre fluid musical brew of soulful, northern, indie -pop. Joan’s blazing torch lights the way on the filthiest of nights…

Our last single "Trust in Me" had a couple of plays on BBC 6 music, thanks to BBC Introducing and Tom Robinson. Cheers Tom!
