Ska/Punk bands need Help!!!

June 19, 2011

We are in desperate need for another $80!!! we only need another $80 to to finish out funding for our split with Llama Tsunami. Our half has beed recorded and Llama T is almost done, so This is it, the home stretch. We only need another $80 in our kickstarter account to be all set for mastering and pressing the CD's. So for only $5 you can get stickers/buttons/a digital copy of the album(before physical release) for $10 you can get that and a real life copy of the album, for $25 you get a personalized T-shirt plus the before stuff! and a bunch other other options if you guys want to checkout the page. So please help! Ska is only dead if you let it be!

Chasing Infinity

You're a Tough One We Have to Try and Climb.

June 18, 2011

Let's face it, crowds are tough. Especially those that are unfamiliar to you, and have never heard your music before, and don't know you as people (for that will always have some kind of effect on the opinion of the performance, consciously or unconsciously).

We're no strangers to tough crowds (in fact, we've had more cold ones than welcoming ones), but we were definitely reminded of such a crowd when we performed at the second round of 2011's Surface Festival. I'm not going to go into detail, but as a band we feel like we have been let down by this organisation, and we are not the only ones. For a huge event that is supposed to give unsigned bands the promotion and exposure that they need, they really seem to be a bit lax on what it means to actually "promote". I'm going to write a more detailed article on this soon, which I will link on my own blog, but for now, you can read this guy's opinion on the whole shebang HERE: http://www.createdinbirmingham.com/2008/03/18/surface-unsigned/ (that's his blog, Created In Birmingham, and as a result, Surface Festival is now hated in Birmingham!) Needless to say anyways, we didn't get through, because we sucked, haha. Neither did our friends Dirty Bernard, so we all took some friends out afterwards and got drunk at the Bier Keller. Yay!

Anyways, onto much band-ier things. Our bassist, Henry, is sadly leaving in September to go and live in France for a year for his French studies (the loveable posh twat), so our time with him is severely limited! He and Megs have both gone home to Bristol and York respectively for the summer, but they're making a grand return a couple of days before our SHIPPING FORECAST GIG, supporting ACRYLIC STREET on the 15th JUNE, so if you've never seen us play before, or love Henry like we do, please do try and make it down to this as it will be the last gig he plays with us!!!

As for recording, balls knows. Things are quite haphazard over summer, as we found last year, with band members living out of town and all. It really is quite a pain, but we wouldn't change our rhythm section for the world (even though when it comes to one of them, we have no choice). Updates on gigs in the fall, along with new recordings, will be up as soon as we can get our heads in gear a.k.a. recover from the traumatic university year and play so many video games our brains turn to blissful mush.

So until then, PEACE OUT and have a great summer!

It Often Takes A War 2009 - 2011

It Often Takes A War – Half Term Report

June 17, 2011

Attendance

Despite a cumbersome six man line-up the War boys have appeared at seven of their eight scheduled shows this term with only personal injury preventing a clean sweep of gigness. They have been joined by excellent DIY students Silent Front, Frau Pouch, Death Pedals, Data Errors, Calva, Commungos, Ragweed, Cherry But No Cake, Houdini, Bogong In Action, Common Deflection Problems, From Great Height, Plague Sermon, Lamp!, and Fat Bicth this term and proven to be a fine example to the class, even with their penchant for being the class jokers.

Good

Appearance and Presentation

IOTAW often display a healthy disregard for fashion and convention preferring to present themselves in a flurry of noise, chaos and questionable dancing. Whilst their post-hardcore tag could peg them for fringe wearing, earnest young men they have shown an inability to play by the rules which has marked them as “weirdos” to many of their peers. Smiles and inter-band heckling seem to contravene what we have come to expect from other students at this level and we do hope this flagrant ignorance of the norm will not harm their future development.

Excellent

Communication

Embracing social media and embarking on a journey into websites and blogging has really begun to enhance the Warsters ability to communicate with other likeminded individuals this term. Despite the fact that their lyrical output remains pretty incomprehensible as it descends into various grunts and screams, on paper (on and offline), their personality and ethics have really begun to shine through. They consistently bang on about their DIY beliefs whenever prompted and thankfully have plenty to backup their rhetoric.

Excellent

Conduct

The boys from IOTAW have firmly established themselves as excellent classmates on any given night. Prompt with their performances (never passing the 30 minute mark), low on demands (soundchecks appear to be a inconsequential despite audience’s belief that they probably should have them, monies and riders are never requested) and always eager to support fellow students with whoops, claps and general good natured banter (other children take note…sulking in the corner until its your turn in the spotlight will result in a loss in grade). What they lack in talent they make up for in sheer exuberance and, dare we say, volume.

Excellent

Overall

These past six months nurturing the It Often Takes A War boys have been a real pleasure. They must now take the logical next steps and branch out from their safe haven of London’s underground and take their particular brand of “music” to more exotic climes (Scarborough maybe?). However, our only reservation is a lack of productivity in the past 6 months and we hope the summer break will see the boys concocting a few more slices of brutalness before the new term starts….if we have to hear those same six blasts of aggro again we may have to downgrade them to a C.


B+
