BRAIN FOOD FOR YOU:
Band biographies, not matter how Shakespearian in their efforts to accurately describe an artist's 'exciting' and 'unusual' formation and the subsequent 'sound' the band have forged for themselves never seem to hit the nail on the head. The following facts about Exit International are not a revelation in themselves. Formed between 3 workmates (Fudge – Ex-Martini Henry Rifles / Space in the 50’s, Scott – Ex-Midasuno and Richey – Now Ex-Stray Borders) in Cardiff, September 2008 as a vehicle to become the local support at a Melvins show, (From which the band ironically were removed at the last minute) the band wanted to make a noise taking influence from a shared love of Girls Against Boys, Lightning Bolt, The Jesus Lizard…..Utilizing Two basses in the process - essentially forming the loudest / noisiest ‘pop’ band you will ever hear. Support slots with the likes of The 80’s Matchbox B-line Disaster, Bad for Lazarus and Oxford Collapse followed. Due to problems with Richey’s work and travel commitments, the band drafted in new drummer Adam and are currently holed up at a lock-up in Newport writing for their forthcoming debut album, to be recorded this summer by Steve Albini (Shellac, Big Black, Nirvana et al) at Electrical Audio, Chicago.
