A tweet tonight from BANG BANG ECHE – of just a URL – was all I needed to spike my curiosity. This is the band that along with T54 and the Transistors are the standouts on this years Chart Disc Vol. 4 – New School vs Old School (Indie Guitar Edition) produced by ChristchurchMusic.org.nz.
I wrote about Chart Disc Vol. 4 back in September here.
The link is to a FilterMagazine.com page (Cheers) announcing the upload to Bandcamp today of an album by TEEN FORTRESS – Bang Bang Eche’s Zach Doney. This followed tweets earlier in the day from TEEN FORTRESS, you can follow and find out some inside information here twitter.com/teenfortress
I’m a great fan of Bang Bang Eche, and this bonus from TEEN FORTRESS has me smirking with good fortune. Cheers to Doney and his excess of energy. I love this kind of noisy carry-on. If you have heard Bang Bang Eche you will be familiar with Doney’s brash, reckless delivery and punkish attitude. Like Bang Bang Eche it is a sound that can verge on chaos but one that is elevated by its youthful swagger and sheer talent.
