East London trio Bible John are the second band to join our September launch party line-up. Bible John took their name from a Glaswegian serial killer (the story itself makes for an interesting read if you have 5 minutes to spare). Leaning on some pretty dark influences (Shellac, Dinosaur Jr, the Melvins), we anticipate any cobwebs to be ferociously blown away!
Bible John formed on the day that Harold Camping predicted the world would end. Ignoring this prophecy the East London based trio spent some time exploring the darker sides of their collective musical psyche, rehearsing in a studio surrounded by rioting teenagers, they stumbled on their trademark bass drenched sound. The band is aiming for their first E.P. release in early 2012.
We asked Bible John what books they were reading RIGHT NOW:
"Between the three of us we've recently gone through Lawrence Lessig's "The Nature and Future of Creativity" Jaron Lenier's "You are not a Gadget" and "Necronomicon: The Best Weird Tales of H.P. Lovecraft"
Catch Bible John at the Bands & Books launch party on the 16th September!
