Buck Brothers Playing 3 NYC Shows
U.K. band Buck Brothers are going to be paying a visit to our stomping grounds soon.
Band members Andy Duke (vocals/bass), Pete Sellers (guitar/vocals) and Stixx (I'm not going to tell you what instrument he plays. You'll have to figure it out on your own!) met back in 2005 at a Buddhist Disco in North London.
I'm figuring they might have stood out from the crowd because their music is far from zen.
What it is though, is full of catchy pop punk hooks like "I like girls in skirts and boots on bikes" and crunching guitars.
In fact, their cheeky humor carries them through songs like "Gorgeously Stupid" with just enough sting to keep them from disappearing in a sea of UK bands who want to pop on over to our shores and head home screaming something about "coming, seeing and conquering".
Buck Brothers dropped their debut Me in October of 2007 and it has been steadily gaining steam with a little help from KROQ.
You can keep the guys powered up like good little energizer bunnies by coming out to see one of their area shows:
March 25th - Lit Lounge - New York, NY
March 27th - Midway - New York, NY
March 28th - Crash Mansion - New York, NY
Full dates (including a SXSW gig) are here.
