Bio[Edit this profile]
Straight from the PR:
Occasionally bands do get signed off unsolicited demos, and The Beautiful New Born Children are one such band. Their music arrived as a nondescript CD-R (with no contact info) that belied the contents within: feverish blasts of raw rock 'n' roll that stomps and swaggers all over the garage.
Imagine The Sonics recording Slanted And Enchanted in 1966 for In The Red Records and you're in the neighbourhood. The energy in this release is undeniable. Out of the gates with the fiery "Do The Do," Hey People! does not let up. All but two of the songs rush by in less than two minutes. A hook is captured, harnessed and then released back into the wild with breathtaking economy until the magnum opus that closes the album: six minutes of raucous clang and feedback that reimagines Raw Power-era Stooges as Jan And Dean aficionados.
Much remains a mystery still with this band. It took weeks to track them down through a six-degrees-of-seperation game that only the internet age could possibly facilitate. And once contact was made, details were slow in coming. Sure, we've corresponded, even spoken once or twice. Apparently, they're a four piece. The lead singer plays guitar both here and with a bevy of other projects on the docket including, surprisingly, Schneider TM. The other guitarist is usually a bassist who happens to make a living designing lace patterns for women's lingerie. The drummer is usually a guitarist who picked up the sticks for the first time for The BNBC and was in a band before with the bassist, who's married to the lead singer.
And, yes, they're all parents to beautiful children, though only one of them is new born.
