They cannot say which kind of music they play. This is always hardest
question for BOWLING BOY - a band from Newcastle, UK. But one
thing is clear - they like to do all via DIY.
First they all met in 1991 and formed
a band CLENCH, but BOWLING BOY was founded just in 1996:
IAIN - voc,g
JOHN - keyb, voc
MOG - dr
IAIN before CLENCH was in THE REPLICAS (did a Peel
Session and supported The
Wedding Present on tour), JOHN and MOG played in
several noise guitar orientated bands, for example LIKE A VIRGIN.
Soon after forming, BOWLING BOY made their first demo which was
released as "Fenikss Oiler" cassette on Latvian underground TORNIS
label to coincide with the bands summer 1997 Latvia/Lithuania/Belarus
tour. After successful East-Europe tour the band returned home and continued
to do music - rehearsing + playing shows together with Newcastle bands,
and guest bands from other places, such as ...Red Monkey...God
Is My Co Pilot...Spraydog...Lois...
July 1998 is arranged for BOWLING BOY first single - the 7" 'Fantastic
True Bowling Stories' will be out on TEN PIN PRODUCTIONS, and
is a comic & vinyl combination.
