Critical Error

Critical Error were a wonderful psychedelic acoustic rock band. They formed in Exeter, Devon in 1985. Critical Error songs typically ranged from the alluringly whimsical to the furiously vitriolic. Their live performances are treasured memories where the music was compelling. The crowd would sit and listen, spellbound, rather than forming a mosh pit and going crazy.

Listening to the beautiful creations of Critical Error again, more than three decades later, it is clear they were an incredibly talented and well drilled unit. We admired them back in the day and appreciate just how amazing their songs and musical skills were with the benefit of hindsight.

Their classic lineup featured Rosie Mullin on voice and tambourine, Steve Mavin on voice and acoustic guitar, Aidan WHiteley on lead acoustic guitar and Allan Veal on bass. There was no drummer, which remained a strong USP of the band throughout their live career.
