I Shot The Pilot are a new bands from four old wise heads, featuring former members of Leicestershire icons Have A Go Hero. Death Of History has four tracks on it, all of which are songs with singing and music, a little bit of bass, guitar and some guy pounding away at his drums. Quick frankly that should get you listening but if you need the opinion of someone more respectful, then read below.
Sir David Frederick Attenborough has been championing the band recently and had these words to say; "Sometimes the vocals are so loud that only the Great Horned Owl is the only species on this planet that can handle it, obviously at a safe distance, in it's homeland of South America...and I should know, I've met a few of these Owl chaps".
I really did mean to post this late last year/early this year when the EP was made as a free download by the band but, like everything, it passed me by.
Wilson Fisk are a foursome from Exeter/Watford/Kent (UK) and play some lovely indie rock much like Calories or a more melodic version of Blakfish, actually it's pretty hard to say these sound like (urgh, I hate comparing) just one band. In fact there's probably a handful of American bands that I could try and pin them down to...but I'm just too lazy and I would rather spend my time listening to this.
You heard me, in connection with lovely Kev at Big Scary Monsters, you can get the Self Titled from The Tupolev Ghost for free from the If You Make It website (let's be honest, most of the stuff I link is from IYMI).
The Tupolev Ghost were a post-hardcore band from Cambridge (UK), I think they had a few line up changes in the few years they were together, they did sound different on the the two other EPs released before this mini album. Anyway, they pretty much did no wrong, signed to one of the best UK record labels, played Fest last year, played with so many other sick bands...I'm not even sure why anyone would want such a good thing come to an end.
You can still buy this mini album, one of their older EPs, the split (with Brontide, Shapes and Holy State) plus other merch from them or Big Scary Monsters...both will be linked at the bottom.
RIYL: Great British bands like Blakfish, Meet Me In St. Louis, Mclusky, Spy vs Spy and international bands like Hot Snakes, Fugazi and Mutiny On The Bounty.
Here's a preview, 'Giant Fucking Haystacks' because it was my favourite song of 2009:
A place where I share my thoughts on music I listen to, bring new bands to your ears, big up bands I like and gigs I want to go to. It's also a little place where I may share music so if that offends anyone in anyway, then please get in touch and we'll thumb wrestle about it.
Symmetrical book stacking. Just like the Philadelphia mass turbulence of 1947.
