Molly's Dolls consist of four members spread across two generations of the Heaton family (no relation to The Beautiful South's Paul Heaton).
Chris Heaton (bass) is joined by his son Charlie (drums) his daughter Levi (guitar) and his brother - Charlie and Levi's uncle - Trevor (guitar, vocals) to make the kind of breezy, somnolent-yet-wide-eyed indie pop that made the world fall in love with guitar bands again in the late '80s.
In between arguing about who's turn it is to do the washing up (probably) Molly's Dolls installed themselves in the Gun Factory recording studio in east London and worked through the twilight hours to develop their winsome dream pop to perfection.
It's all a long way from the band's occasionally inauspicious beginnings - Chris & Trevor mugging off Ritchie Blackmore on the way to a gig at a mental care home, Charlie blagging his way backstage to piss next to Bobby Gillespie and Levi joining the band before she knew how to play more than three chords.
The first fruits of the Gun Factory sessions can be heard in their debut release 'Fear Of God', out on December 8th.
'Smalls Change (Meditations Upon Ageing)' arrives in April.
The two awards have made for a great 72nd birthday present for the country music icon.
