With reviews on drownedinsound.com, coming under experimental and punk, the bubble project are a band that write a good catchy tune, but like to have fun doing it. But if you ask any of the four members to describe the noise they make, the answer would simply be, POP.
Our story starts in November 2000, a pub in sunderland after the demise of their former band the mullet police. The Bubble Projects first line up consisted of
- stephen - guitar/keyboard/samples/singing
- ricky - bass/keyboard/guitar/singing
- tim - hitting the drums as hard as he could.
the band took time off over christmas 2001 to make some changes. One of those changes was ian black. Ian joined the band on bass, leaving ricky to take care of keyboards and samples full time aswell as more singing. But having Ian on board was no great change. A life long friend, the band were always getting him to play/sing songs with them or just sit on stage with them. In february 2002 another change was made. The band took all the songs off their two demos (8 songs in all) and put them together on one CD and called it who killed retro girl?. It proved to be a good move and turned out to be a hit.
The band are soon to record a single which they will self release later in the year.
