Ive been planning to unleash this on the world for far too long so here it is. I give you HIT THE BEACH. You know that band Bangers who along with the Arteries are currently destroying every venue in the uk? Well before they were Bangers they were actually a Summer time only party thrash/hardcore band who sang songs exclusively about the beach and wore speedos when they played. Im not joking here, just wait until you listen. The only difference in the lineup to Bangers is Andrew is on guitar and Roo is on bass instead of vice versa as they are now. You will recognise the rasping vocals immediately and i guarantee you will love this and then get pissed off you never saw them. The band's main influence i guess is the 80's film 'Surf Nazis Must Die' which is like a seaside version of the Warriors. Check out the trailer here and then watch it, crazy film, you will recognise some samples from the songs in the movie. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q8LV1S2q2GA I had the pleasure of seeing this band twice but its not nearly enough and every Bangers show i just want them to leap into some Hit The Beach as they did at a house show i put on last summer in my bedroom.
If you can get past the genius song titles and bring yourself to listen then please do. 1 minute thrash songs about sandcastles, crabs, david hasselhoff, lifeguards and general beach shenanigans. If i ever have money in my life id love to release both these eps on vinyl but until then, enjoy:
Stay beween the flags kids
