A powerful folk rock band dealing primarily in Celtic mood music. Formed in 1987, You Slosh featured Troy Donockley (b. 30 May 1964, Workington, Cumbria, England; uillean pipes) and Duncan Rayson (keyboards). Donockley composed long, involved pieces for guitars and ethnic instruments (whistle, pipes, flute), while the sound made by the other members of the band was big and exciting. An immensely popular college group, in late 1991 they mysteriously disbanded, just when they were starting to receive national attention. Donockley went on to join Iona and also play with Barbara Dickson, the Enid, Maddy Prior, Midge Ure.
