Tez prides himself on keeping his songs simple and catchy there are no fiddly intricate finger picking styles here neither are there any wine glass shattering F# descending x-factor vocal athletics on parade either, he hates that sort of thing plus he can’t do them anyway. He will also always throw a cover or two in his live sets, everybody from Slade to the Ramones have been given the Little Terry acoustic punk treatment, Johnny Cash, the Clash and the Pogues have all been given a little Terry make over from time to time, even songs from his past bands and mates bands you probably don’t know are covers have been included in Tez’s energetic sometimes frantically paced gigs.
