Associated with: Sotones Loose Caboose didn’t really start in the normal way. Well not in the putting an add in NME saying “drummer wanted” type way. Ollie and Tom met at college and had been friends for a while. When Tom got dumped by a long term girlfriend and wanted to go and record some sad songs, Ollie was an obvious choice on drums. In December 2005 they went to Twin Peaks Studio in Wales to see what they could come up with. Fairly happy with the basic tracks, Tom started doing solo gigs as Thomas Joseph, which was fun but not Loose Caboose fun.
