Elise Bell




"Stick the kettle on eh. 
A hint of Zappa and The Mothers, but with hearing aids and falsers. The band is from the mining towns of Levenmouth, Fife - home to the Methil dockyard, Leven beach and several supermarkets, including an Aldi.
Baffies at the ready, they're set to head on their 2017 tour, surrounded by their home comforts – an armchair, a teapot and countless objects found abundantly in pensioners' homes. Coming to a town near you..."  Elise Bell

Elise Bell mixed domestic objects associated with her grandmothers, with hand built ceramics and illustrated posters for her fictional band, 'The Grandmothers of Methil', evoking the love of home, extended family, inherited culture and nostalgia, tinged with dark humour and wit.
