2)A Wigan guitar band from the late 90s.
Fleck is a Wigan guitar band from the late 90s, famous for Brendan O'Leary's (singer) quip of being a "piss poor indie band".
The band released a 4 track demo and an album that received some critical acclaim, but an unimpressed public wanted nothing more than shambolic life performances.
Most of the bands repertoire was a combination of O'Leary's sometimes surreal, but always melodic lyric lines and Matthew Dolan's (guitar) perfect pop sensibilities.
Other members included Kieron O'Leary (drums) Simon 'L' Peirce (bass) and Phil Rigby (guitar).
Earlier founding members included Ian Nightingale (guitar) and Andrew Thompson (bass). But these individuals left following artistic differences and bright solo careers.
