Traditional Graffiti (aka ‘The Trads’) has risen, phoenix-like out of the ashes of the Wheeze & Suck Band. The band members are:

  • Ian "The Pump" Macintosh – slide, acoustic & electric guitars, melodeon, vocals
  • John "Johnny Red Tips" Milce - percussion
  • Nigel "Muddy" Walters – cello mandolin, mandolin, mouth organ, vocals

They play a mix of English traditional and contemporary folk music, (including some favourites from the Wheezers repertoire), and American roots / blues music, including a number of self-penned compositions.

Since the Wheezers broke up (amicably) in late 2016 they took a bit of a break from live appearances while they redefined their approach and repertoire. They started performing again in late 2017 and have since performed at various Folk Festivals plus Folk Club and pub appearances.
