Due to an overwhelming public demand. Re Released – Smaller – Badly Badly on itunes
Before The Sums we had Smaller and now Smaller’s debut album ‘Badly Badly (featuring Noel Gallagher’ has been re released……
Smaller was a band fronted by Peter ‘Digsy’ Deary. A Liverpudlian born musician and singer/songwriter with 90’s indie brit pop favourites ‘Smaller’ and more recently ‘The Sums’, he has also been immortalised in song by Noel Gallagher and the Oasis song “Digsy’s Dinner” taken from their debut album Definitely Maybe, and also he is mentioned on the title track of Oasis’s ‘Be Here Now’, claiming that Digsy has shit jokes, and oh how true this is .
Digsy was lead singer with 90’s indie legends ‘Smaller’ who had a successful debut album ‘Badly Badly’ from this came some top 10 indie chart hits, which included ‘Wasted & Is (feat Noel Gallagher), God i hate this town & Stray dogs and binbags. The band where regular fixtures on Oasis tour’s, both Smaller and Oasis’s friendship has been well documented over the years. Unfortunately the bands record label ran into financial troubles and went bust, leaving the band stranded and their 2nd album to be shelved. The band continued with a line up change, introducing Chris Mullin and Lee Watson. The original line up included Stephen Deary – drums, Paul Cavanagh – Guitar, Jason Riley – Bass (and not forgeting Paul Bowness RIP)
Digsy has been currently recording new material with his new band ‘The Sums’ for release. The new line up includes long time friends and ex smaller members Chris Mullin (bass) and Lee Watson (guitar), with Chris Campbell (drums). The band have earned themselves a great reputation up and down the country with some key players in the music industry, and they never fail to deliver. The band are still touring around the country, and Digsy and Chris Mullin have also been playing a number of special acoustic sets up and down the country and a number of live radio sessions.
