Blueprint Makeover


Blueprint Makeover are a hard rock/metal band from Edinburgh! Formed in the Winter of 2008, Blueprint Makeover started life as Daniel Beckmann (Lead Guitar), Seth Oberlander (Rhythm Guitar) and Felix Adamson (Drums) jamming in a room and performing covers. Interest was taken almost at once, as the band were shortly offered to play at "Top Of The Pops", and recruited singer Oliver Allen. They preformed Nirvana's hit 1991 single "Smells Like Teen Spirit", and this was greeted with a good reception from fans. Read more on Last.fm
Blueprint Makeover are a hard rock/metal band from Edinburgh! Formed in the Winter of 2008, Blueprint Makeover started life as Daniel Beckmann (Lead Guitar), Seth Oberlander (Rhythm Guitar) and Felix Adamson (Drums) jamming in a room and performing covers. Interest was taken almost at once, as the band were shortly offered to play at "Top Of The Pops", and recruited singer Oliver Allen. They preformed Nirvana's hit 1991 single "Smells Like Teen Spirit", and this was greeted with a good reception from fans. Although rehearsing frequently, the band only saw one gig in this line-up, and Allen left the band in early 2009, due to musical differences and wishing to pursue a solo-career.This left Beckmann, Oberlander and Adamson to seek a vocalist; having no success, and with the next "Top Of The Pops" fast approaching, Adamson decided to switch to vocals, and Michael Reid was drafted in on drums. This quartet showed a change musical direction, moving away from Grunge and more into the realms of Hard Rock, Metal and Funk, drawing influence from bands such as Rage Against The Machine, Coheed and Cambria and Iron Maiden, to name but a few. The band also showed signs of spanning a wide range of musical ability, however, with songs such as "Rusting" offering a more emotional and melodic side of the band.

Their politically charged lyrics and rhythmical "bounce" are synonymous with the Edinburgh music scene, and audiences have been impressed with what the band brought to the table. In early 2010 however, Oberlander was replaced by bassist Oliver Wardell, and a feud grew between the band and Oberlander, due to him joining the bands biggest rivals, The Brief Encounters. Not to be put off, the new line up carried on, writing an impressive number of songs and releasing five studio albums and one live album, entitled "This is a live album, you dip-shit". They continued on, until early 2011, when Reid and Wardell left the band suddenly. It is not entirely understood why the duo left so suddenly, as the band do not enjoy talking about the split, but Wardell's check-in to a rehab after suffering from a harsh heroin addiction is a large clue pointing to the answer. The band, now only containing Beckmann and Adamson, is still very much active and releasing new material, such as the April 2011 single "Fuck Arizona", a message based on the SB-1070 law passed in the US State which promotes racism and racial profiling. In August of 2011 also, Olmo McPake and Jake Duncanson joined the band, on bass and drums respectively.

It remains to be seen whether or not this line up will be successful, but an upcoming world tour should let us know... Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
