Is Dave Pickett by any chance related to Mark Pickett...who used to play guitar with Lee Harmer & Chaquitas in 1960's ?
Just a thought....I was at school with Mark. :)

There is more information at SoundCloud - https://soundcloud.com/the-flowing

Timeless and could have existed at any point over the past forty years or so, the passion and conviction make The Flowing entirely of the moment.
Originating from The Medway Towns, the home of Billy Childish. The Flowing perform solo or full band. Performed extensively throughout the south east of England and London. Featured live sets and interviews on local radio. Participated in charity events such as Oxfam and Music against racism. Played alongside Bellowhead and Cara Dillon at the Sweeps Festival in Rochester April 2010.
The new album, "Garden Of England", consists of fifteen tracks from the heart and soul of Dave Pickett. It explores his experiences of life and living in the Medway Towns.
The music has been described as a downbeat, sea shanty vibe. World folk, country, reggae. Reminds you obscurely of The Rogue’s Gallery compilation.

Well known artist Lupen Crook said..”The Flowing are this rustic, torn up dirty little band. A country blues sorta thing, but very punk, if only in spirit. The songs are great and they have that heart and soul in what they do type of feel, which I consider essential”.

The album, "Garden Of England" has been produced entirely at home from composing to performing and recording and production. Tracks 1, 8 and 13 are the product of a internet collaboration with singer/songwriter Agathe Peyrat from Paris, France.

The album launch was at "The Barge" in Gillingham on the 20th November, 2010. It proved to be a great success, all the CD’s sold out. The album is available now on CD Baby and available on Itunes and Amazon from 15th December.

The Flowing are:
David Pickett Vocals, guitar, mandolin, uke, trumpet, accordion and keys.
Sophie Williams, Vocals.
John Whitaker, Trumpet.
Agathe Peyrat, vocals on Seaship, Hold on, Victory From Garden of England.

All I could find was this  :)
Source This is Kent.

The Flowing

Charmingly downbeat, beautifully broken, but still strangely uplifting, The Flowing represent the battered heart of the Medway Towns.

The Flowing songwriter Dave Pickett appears across the south east, with or without up to eight Medway musicians, all adding their own voices, trumpets, percussion or bass to Pickett's battered, bluesy songs.

His rambling, poetic lyrical style offers an honest look at life and living in Medway, with songs full of soulful imagery that retain a well-worn wonder. For more, visit www.myspace.com/theflowing
