The band has its origins in a group called Blind Summit, which David and Franic formed with Hugh Noble in Wymeswold, near Loughborough in Leicestershire, in 1998 The band changed its name to the Wave Pictures and Hugh was eventually permanently replaced by Jonny Helm They recorded and self-released a string of albums before settling in London

The Guardian has described their work as "charming, witty pop songs shot through with Jonathan Richman's gawky glee and Suede's doomed provincial romanticism They owe a certain debt to The Smiths, and Tattersall has Morrissey's knack of marrying the ridiculous and the sublime"

The band is closely linked to artists Darren Hayman formerly of Hefner, Herman Dune, Daniel Johnston, Jeffrey Lewis and the Mountain Goats, all of whom they have collaborated with live and on record

In 2014 Billy Childish produced, played on and co-wrote with Dave Tattersall most of the songs on Great Big Flamingo Burning Moon

Their 2016 album, A Season in Hull, was recorded live using a single microphone and released on vinyl only
