They have split. What a bunch of buttpirates :(
played for 30 seconds then smashed the borrowed drum kit and beat each other up
And it was fucking great.
I had high hopes for this band I remember hearing their demos and being excited but never I've never heard much about them since.
Had a lot of things going on onstage, good musically...
Another good band bites the dust.
i spent most of my day listening to the 4 tracks i have of theirs - anoyingly i love them even more now. They are playing a farewell london gig in september i am told (i have read from myspazz) so it will be attended! I love their artwork and depressive imagery. Less and Zero is related to one or more of them as well. nearly a 10 out of 10 then :(
I was at that gig, and they barely played for a minute before cymbals started rolling through the crowd..
Some of their fondest moments are recalled on their my space. Thankfully it looks like work has already begun on a more pop-oriented post-BoP band.
But yes, that last gig will be amazing.
they were great at the garage supporting Melt Banana and also at the Swan with Rollo Tomassi. Matt, i'll never forget those bass lines shaking my ceiling into the early hours!!
I remember recording at a studio in Reading with friends of BOP, who had been recording demos there the previous week.
The owner of the place didn't waste much time in asking us to pass on a shitty message to them informing them of his displeasure at their behaviour the previous weekend.
See, the studio was located in a shed at the bottom of his garden - and during the recording process, bands are expected to stay there or make other arrangements. The BOP fellas decided this meant make themselves at home in his house proper and fuck the gaff up.
I learnt what Rock n Roll was that day.
Bet i knew last as well
have words SteveO - get your bro to see the error of his ways. Tell him you'll kill yourself and/or promise not to kill yourself - whatever will encourage him more to continue the walk down this musical path with the Birds. no questions, just do it!!
Based on some reasons for the split that post is a tad inappropriate. Meine bruder was/is in taiwan when they split anyway...he had little to do with decision.
There is indeed some serious shit going down with certain members of the Birds.
But.. as far as I know none of the band listen to heavy music any more at all. Another band is in the pipeline but much more accessible, though I imagine equally innovative.
Also their drummer Billy got the words 'Last night a slave broke into my house and watched me sleep' tattooed on his leg last week.
