Sputnik Weazel

Sputnik is a singer/songwriter, composer, artist and session musician. In a career that was inspired by the beat poets & politicized by punk, Sputnik has busked with Eddie Izzard, jammed with Jools Holland, and performed at numerous venues & festivals throughout Europe.

In 2011 Sputnik became the drummer for folk/punk icons The Men They Couldn't Hang, playing drums and piano on their crowd-funded album The Defiant (2014).

Sputnik has written and released over 200 original songs to date, his last studio recording "Eulogy" is a thought provoking collection of eclectic tracks, covering a wide range of subject matters.

"Serious points disguised in pretty tunes and arresting imagery... a record I want to share with everyone who'll listen."
(Dai Jeffries - R2 magazine)

"If music was a box of chocolates, this would be the quality selection of hard and soft centres. Sputnik has converted this reviewer into a fan." (Ron D Bowes - folking.org)

A consummate songsmith with worldly wise attitude, his sublime lyricism flows seamlessly... gliding on layered sound textures (Pete Owen)

The Weazels

Filmed for a Dutch TV Pilot show at the Tuschinski Theater (Amsterdam; 1980's). Sputnik's minimal mobile drum kit was created following a previous arrest for busking in Paris. One of the Weazel's claims to fame was that (an early career) Eddie Izzard supported, and on occasions played tambourine with the band. Polly Weazel (lead vocals) is sadly with us no more, and Al Weazel is a much sought after session guitarist. Nik recently began collaborating on a project with the author of "The Dice Man"; which is how they ended up in Amsterdam in the first place..
