Featured on this site are tracks from accross the board, a selection from a collection of work spanning over 20 years.

Here is a brief bit of information on Margot Escargot whos single 'When You Were My Girl' is availible on Spotify & Deezer

Margot Escargot are Dorset based purveyors of traditional English guitar rock, strong on melody, universal lyric and the odd surprise for those who crave it. They believe in real songs being written and performed by real people on real instruments.

"A talent show semi-finalist sitting in a room somewhere, having a song written for him, hopefully getting coke blown up his asshole, has nothing to do with music. No one has an acoustic guitar out, trying to write a middle eight. We are writing that middle 8 right now."

Formed in 2014 initially as a songwriting experiment between Steve Butler (singing) and Jamie Pinnow (electric bass) who drafted in drummer Rick Veall, a hugely in demand drummer in Dorset and guitarists Peter Roberts and Andrew Hurst. The two guitarists play both rock and classical as well as traditional stringed instruments such as lute and mandolin, and ethnic instruments such as sitar between them. Lucy Hackett, on keys and vocals, is a professional music teacher in Dorset schools, musical director for stage productions and all-round sweetie.

Out of this confetti of musical differences emerged a sound that combines The Beatles with the Beach Boys, the Kinks with The Who, while also managing to include progressive elements reminiscent of Yes and Genesis.

Margot Escargot are releasing the single When You Were My Girl on The Animal Farm in March 2020

Someone WAS once 'your girl' and her current lifestyle might make you want to puke with regret, and we have all 'laughed until we've cried.. until the stitches fray and fall away..'

It's only life eh? And life can only be sung about by those who've lived it.
