The Polly Johnson Set are a musically diverse, endearingly dysfunctional and endlessly entertaining five-piece collection of Wellingtonian songwriters and performers. Formed during a particularly chilly Lyall Bay winter as a way to keep warm and as an excuse to drink whisky – the band soon realised that their favourite songs were their own. They resolved to hone and polish those tunes until they were dazzling nuggets of musical gold, awesome enough to unleash on a public eager for tunes of murder, love and farming equipment.
