Quentin Holway, otherwise known as Alfie Noakes for reasons no-one can recall, is a local type who writes songs and then plays them to people.

He was in the Moonshot Blues Band, later called the Moonshots, who did quite a lot of stuff a while back, playing all over the UK and Europe to great acclaim. They stopped and Quentin went solo, playing all over the UK and Europe to great acclaim. He also formed the band Sevenscore, playing all his own songs, and recorded the album Safe and Dry, which has become something of a rarity due to there never being that many copies of it in the first place.

There is talk of a new album, due for release about four years ago, and maybe a T-shirt. His influences include Christopher Hitchens, Neil Sedaka and roast chicken, in that order. If you rolled John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Thom Yorke and Nick Drake into one, you'd end up with a very peculiar looking person.
