ARREST CHARLIE TIPPER
The band began life as The Charlie Tipper Experiment in 2013, releasing an album and a clutch of singles for Breaking Down Recordings.
In 2015 the band became The Charlie Tipper Conspiracy for no real reason other than they thought it would be a good idea to keep people guessing as to what they were up to.
This happened again in December 2017 when the band became Arrest! Charlie Tipper.
