Welcome to The Home Guard's official website!
The Home Guard are an independent band from
Peterborough, England. Fundamentally a rock act,
you'll hear elements in their music that could be
described as indie, alternative, progressive,
Britpop, folk, glam, new wave, and a few more
besides. This is the best place to get started:
There's plenty more
(two albums' worth) on the music
page - all material recorded by The Home
Guard will always be available to listen to for
free, in full and in high quality on this
website. As an added bonus, don't miss the free
downloads, including a couple of cover versions.
The Home Guard’s
main influences include Queen, Jethro Tull, Madness, Elvis Costello, Blur, David Bowie, Van der
Graaf Generator and The Beatles, but
for a more extensive (and slightly esoteric)
list, see their MySpace profile. The aim
was to take as many various influences as
possible and make albums that are musically
interesting, and you can judge for yourself
whether this has been achieved successfully here.
