Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! Welcome to the wonderful year of 2012 where good things happen and music rules the world!
We're sorry we havent blogged for ages but facebook kinda kidnapped us for a couple of years!
Anyway we're back and ready to write!
Just a very quick catch up. The Benwahs are now a Brummie based three piece consisting of:
Myself on Vocals and Guitar, Ben on Drums and Si on Bass.
We have just been signed to MAS Records, a non-profit music development programme founded in 2001 by Kevyn Gammond, with Robert Plant (ex-Led Zeppelin) and Karl Hyde (Underworld) as its patrons. http://www.mightyatomsmasher.com/
And we are having lots of fun rehearsing and gigging with the view of writing together as a band, sorting some acoustic sets and gigging and busking to all you beautiful people!
We are also talking about lots of other little challenges we can set ourselves to make our journey more fun, but we'll let you in on that a bit later!
For now we hope you are happy and well and we'll leave you with our soundcloud so you can enjoy some newly signed femme fronted punk! ;-)
Love and Punk,
