Bassist Pete Murphy was unemployed and has been playing the bass guitar since 2008.
Titors Insignia were brought together in mid 2008 & supporting, Paloma Faith, Alabama 3, Don Bronco, Steve Craddock, The Guillamots & Proud Mary. Titor’s Insignia built themselves a solid reputation, a crowd pleasing live set and pride themselves on raw performances show after show.
Their debut album “Fair City Riots” is an electrifying concoction of influences ranging from Britpop to classic rock with a sprinkling of Indie, and healthy dose of Punk thrown in for good measure.
For the members themselves, “Fair City Riots” is much more than just a collection of songs. It is a diary of life experiences; a down to earth tale of love and life, good times and bad, and a window into what it means to be small town boys with big time dreams.
From the mellow groove of “A Town Called Yesterday” and the uplifting “Set in Stone”, to the classic foot stomping rock anthems “Fair City Riots” and “I Don’t Love You”, this is definitely as good as it gets if you like no nonsense, honest music.
In this day and age of over produced manufactured one hit wonders, “Fair City Riots” is definately the proof you need that rock and roll is still very much alive.
Join Titor’s Insignia’s Fair City Riots as soon as you can, because afterall…
You’re either on their side or in their way.
