The Colt .45s
The Colt .45s
We've also had press in France and done interviews for The Talk Magazine and Scenesters.co.uk and during the summer of 2007 we did an 11 date tour of the UK. Members of the band run club nights & DJ at Durham venue Fish Tank. In 2008 we hope to keep gigging all over the UK, maybe even in Europe, and get more coverage of the LP. Already recording new material, we're planning a 2nd 7" vinyl release in March.
In September we’re moving to Leeds but the fun doesn’t stop! Keep your eyes and ears pealed! Tracks from the album, as well as new stuff, be heard on our offical website, www.myspace.com/thecolt45smusic. Keep checking for updated blogs and gig listings. "Obscure, fiestly electro-punk... Like a couple of kids who've unwrapped a Smiths album and a Casio keyboard on Christmas morning, indulged in too much of their selection box and presented the end result to their pissed parents as they watch the Queens speach..." - The Crack (Nov '06) "Crazily lo-fi... Just really great..." - James Clark, BBC Radio Newcastle "Fast making a name for themselves in the North East scene; programmed electro beats meets DIY punk" - Badrobot.co.uk "When they have a moment, they have a pretty magnificent one" - The Cuckoos Press "These Durham based noise merchants could easily be an early 80’s post punk band found at the bottom of one of John Peel’s box of records.
Think lofi, gothic, disjointed, sparse and twisted..." - Plastic Ashtray "...Like The Yeah Yeah Yeahs playing Fisher Price toys" - Cherry Bomb Disco "The band blast straight into a set of electro fused shouty punk. Dance beats clatter into pop moments, punk attitude meets battered Casio keyboard melodied... Shining out in a stagnating indie-centric north-east scene" - The Crack (June '07) "Sounds like the sort of tunes Sonic Youth used to make before their creativity crumbled to pointless self-indulgence..." - Metro "Purloined straight from the dark heart of minimalist electro pop" - The Sunday Experience "A perfectly timed incendiary device primed to explode in your brain the minute you hear it... Bleakly beautiful and atmospheric...
At least two steps removed from the current music scene" - The Devil Has The Best Tuna "Wow" - Barry Wilson, NE1 FM "The Colt .45s have been ripping up the north east music scene... Not to be missed by any music lover" - Scenesters.co.uk Download of the Week - Mookychick.co.uk Album of the Month - The Crack Magazine (Jan '08) Read more on Last.fm.
