Cranky George is made up of actor Dermot Mulroney, his brother (and screenwriter) Kieran Mulroney, co-founder of The Pogues James Fearnley, producer Brad Wood, and Sebastian Sheehan Visconti. The band started as the Low and Sweet Orchestra in the 90s, and over time the Mulroney brothers and Fearnley morphed into Cranky George, eventually bringing on Wood on bass and Visconti on drums/percussion.
