Them Amazing Babies are a cleverly chaotic, esoteric, art-rock band from Newcastle. Formed in late 2005 during a period of post-uni blues, they attempted to make very different sounds to those going on around them, feeding on their lead singer's obsessions with Haruki Murakami, Japanese culture, sentiment, and Raymond Chandler novels.
The band are vastly overlooked locally, but have secured an amazing array of support slots/tour dates in the last 9 months, including Larrikin Love, The Subways and The Sunshine Underground. They were chosen for these through cult status, through word of mouth, and thanks to a few particular individuals catching on to what they are doing.
A furious force live, with the ability to turn expectations on the head and create some truly gorgeous moments. Ben dances, screams, snarls, and ever so gently lulls you into the world of Them Amazing Babies. (He reads a lot.) Bryan Fury is blind and does not. A chaotic and extremely unpredictable individual on the live stage. Most people think those are sunglasses he wears. Rob is the exact opposite. Perfect vision and perfect calmness. However, we are told that behind the calm lies fear. Ste’s knuckles often bleed when he plays too hard, and this blood can currently be seen dried onto his snare drum. He also runs an art gallery.
Their new single,'Destiny Is Stabbing Me' is released on limited edition 7” this summer on O.C.D
"Them wondrous Amazing Babies are somewhere between Nick Cave, Pavement, and then some. Great tunes, quality lyrics. Tall tales of the enchanting and surreal. A clockwork drummer, two weaving guitars delving and descending through minor chord mayhem"(SANDMAN)
