With two days to go until the massive launch night for Beyond the Bunker and more importantly Moon 1 I can now announce that we’ve had another review in and its a great one. So much so that they contacted us straight back and requested an interview (which Dan was filling out pretty much all day today and will be available online very soon). How’s this sound….?
‘Overall this is a very British book, from Dan Thompson’s script which winks at the reader without ever coming across as smug to Steve Penfold’s artwork which feels as British as 2000AD while having a distinct style of its own, Moon is a title to watch out for and deserves to become a breakout hit. If Beyond the Bunker can keep up this level of quality they have a very bright future ahead of them…’ In a word, natch!!
Moon 1 will be available with every £5 entry to the Beyond the Bunker / Moon 1 Launch night at the Square Pig in Holborn, WC1V 6NX accompanied by some of the finest comedic and musical acts we could find! If the comedy musical acts of Paul Sweeney and Cold Callers doesn’t elevate your canoe (and frankly that’s massively unlikely) then Sktyskratcher’ll burn your socks right off! We’ve literally covered all ear bases.
Vibrant and poignant, alternative rockers Skyskratcher are nothing if not eclectic. They’ve re-invented the ‘power-trio’, with experimentation at the heart of the band sending him reeling adventurously towards new ideas and new ways of both writing and listening to music (sometmes simultaneously, so if front man Jude Benjamin gets a funny look on his face half way through a section he might be thinking of another way to come at it.
With a dynamic rhythm section they lay the foundations for a harmonic wall of guitar driven songs with colourful melodies, fusing a comprehensive array of influences to something uniquely their own!
Prep your earlobes for audio trips through delicate, whispered melodies, upbeat grooves, flat-out punk skin smashing and Mars Volta-esque guitar lunacy, a level of diversity which have seen them backing a broad range of other bands! A use of live vocal effects and carefully structured arrangements does not stop this band from tearing up the stage every time they play. They are manic, toneful and great to listen to and their playing at the Beyond the Bunker event whether you’re there or not. So it’d be a shame if you miss ’em!
