This is how Radio 2 described them:
"Welsh borders trio Hoover the Dog are purveyors of inventive, intelligent music. Fiddler John Hymas' classical, European and jazz influences dominate the Celtic-ish repertoire with a few English traditional tunes thrown in for good measure. The result is wonderfully original. A mainly instrumental set features the virtuoso combination of Hymas' strings, the athletic accordion of Paul Hutchinson and guitar/bouzouki man Tony Harris' light, fluid fingerings. Exhibiting bags of technical brilliance and the gift of making music clever and funny at the same time - much cheeky time change and manic modulation - the music ranges from stylish and understated to gutsy and gleeful."
