Never Pass Entry
Never Pass Entry
After Vivacity disbanded due to "creative differences", Thomas realised he had a lot of songs left that he wanted to work on. What surfaced was the "Sepia Diagram Demos". A general collection of unfinished ideas which saw little use once the band came together bar "Airstrip" and "Systematic Devastation". Thom (bass and vocals) then asked Ross and Chris if they wanted to join the band, on guitar and drums, respectively.
In 2007, Matt Sloan was added to the line-up to play rhythm guitar and perform backing vocals. Never Pass Entry started as a noise rock band with tracks like "Systematic Devastation", but eventually took on a sound more familiar to heavier punk rock drawing influence from Mudhoney and Nirvana. It was after the recording of a very mellow, almost haunting song "Empty", that the band decided to experiment a bit more, which can be seen on the keyboard based track "The Traveller" and the solo Thom acoustic song "Place & Time". They don't hold themselves to a particularly style while writing, meaning anything is possible, but they seem to favour punk rock and acoustic songs. Their live sets tend to finish with "Airstrip", a song they've recorded multiple times, but length and how abrasive the song is depends entirely on how they feel, the longest version was almost 10 minutes long, but depending on the length of the jam, it's generally around 4 to 6 minutes long. This song has little artistic merit and is an excuse, as the band have stated to "rock out".
