Their dads built ships and Segedunum Rust create wonderful, thoughtful, soulful music. Stripped back lo-fi, these guys roll up their sleeves, peel back their outer skins, stick or twist with ukes, bass, mandolin or distorted guitar and dig down.

These are songs of triumph and tragedy, legend and myth where normal lives are unfurled. Folk-naive to post-modern melodic, think Richard Hawley on Tyne, the eye of Segedunum Rust’s lens takes them roaming far from their native Roman Wallsend. Lamenting tragedy and brutality of lives shattered in the blood and glass of the Orlando disco floor. Looking back to 63, The Beatles and JFK, Segedunum Rust are an ever-reflective three-piece collective.
