The Shalfonts

The Shalfonts formed in 2008 as primarily an internet band where members would record their individual tracks then mail them on for more over dubs.
featuring members of Shocked Elevator Family (Bryn Bowen, Ralph Morton),The Reverends (Lloyd Bowen, David Morris),
Hell Brown kids (Catherine Martin) and Sunset Cinema Club (Greg Haines).

 The Shalfonts are based in both Birmingham UK and Bergen, Norway at the same time. Exquisite.
Their first album "Sturt Logic" was released in early 2009.

2010 saw the band tighten its sound and song writing for their second album "Mjuk Nation".

Two e.p.´s, a double A-side and a disco style single plus side projects (Ralph Morton drumming in Sunshine Frisbee Laserbeem
and Bryn Bowen playing under his birthname ((Bryn Bowen)) and as Mountain Cloth) preceeded the release of "Grant Mansions"
in the summer of 2014.
