Bob Collum & the Welfare Mothers

Bob Collum & the Welfare Mothers


Go West young man! And so they did. Except for one guy, Bob Collum. He went East. Trading his home town of Tulsa, Oklahoma for the marshy plains of the Thames Estuary in Essex, bringing with him a country tinged power-pop with a healthy sense of irony. Bob’s songs deliver a wry glimpse at life, love, death and…..home decorating. All this is backed by the sensational Welfare Mothers. Although only one is a mother and none are on welfare at the moment, they remain the tightest band this side of the Thames Delta.
