McCloy formed The Observers (named after the block of flats
Paul was living in at the time), in July 2007. The band played
their first live performance at a jam night at the Queens Head
at the end of July that year, with just 6 songs.
Since then "The Observers" have played many
pubs in and around Aylesbury. “We
may not be the most talented of musicians, but we have a great,
fun night and so does the audience. I think that’s
why we are so popular, along with the fact that we are a ‘cover’
band that plays classic rock songs that everybody knows”.
What has been the biggest gig/audience
you have played at/to so far?
Probably ‘Hobble on the Cobbles’ last year, although we did
play ‘Party on the Pitch’ in Bletchley MK where
there were quite a few in attendance.
What has been the biggest success
The Observers has achieved so far?
I think ‘Hobble’ last year; it was a great
experience for all of us. We all felt a small sample of what
a monster rock band must feel when they play open air gigs!

Please tell us something exclusive
and of interest about the *band, which is
not common knowledge to your fans?
We all ‘sh*t’
ourselves before a gig, at a new venue!!!
For our readers, who may not have
heard of you before, please describe your sound/style and influences.
Any classic from 60s 70s
80s 90s 00s, the age group of the band is varied i.e. Paul
44, Martin 26, John 22, James 23.
Paul had a lot of influence
to start with i.e. music from Chuck Berry, Eagles,
Clash, Pistols, Police, Stray Cats, Duran Duran, Guns n’
Roses, but this is a very democratic band so the lads with more
up to date influences; include the likes of Oasis, Blur, Feeder,
Snow Patrol, Fountains Of Wayne, so anything that’s guitar-based
Is there anything else you wish to
add and share with the readers of The New
To all the people that regularly attend an Observers gig, we thank you
BIG TIME, - without you it wouldn't be any fun at all!!!
