Earthworks - used to be a lively, Suffolk based, local band who got the energy/subtlety/interest balance just right for dancing. Utterly memorable for their Thrash Polka, even if you met it just the once. The 'unthrash' introduction allowed you to get into the swing of the dance, then a short pause, the tune returned with attitude and the feet had some serious catching up to do....
The Earthworks' style is carried on by Workhouse, the music picking up a few more reggae influences than Earthworks but in there's the same enthusiasm.
