‘Bible Camp’ was inspired by a story Ray’s Mum told him about her uni days in Manila. He explains; “two of the blokes used the camp as a retreat to meet up, as their extremely Catholic families wouldn’t ever accept them being with each other. Apparently one of their Dads wasn’t too happy when he was made aware and had come down there after finding out… My Mum, Dora saw the Dad kicking in the head of his son’s lover” This tune imagines an alternative outcome; one where the lovers fall in love on camp, then spend the ensuing years dreaming of, and drawing enlightenment from their brief, sweet time together…
Domestic La La is a brand new label spearheaded by Violent Soho’s James Tidswell, in partnership with Unified Music Group. Says Tidswell of the band, “West Thebarton are honest, real, and full of heart, the spirit and energy in their music literally jumps through the speakers and connects with me, giving me an emotion I didn’t know I was feeling and that’s about as good as it gets. I fucking LOVE them!“
Following some seriously raucous appearances at BIGSOUND (which, we might add, kicked off more than a little industry scuffling), the band have been added to the Byron Bay FALLS FESTIVAL line-up. They are equally psyched to tread the boards with party rock duo POLISH CLUB on their Chrissy time tour.
Get it through your skulls folks: this rabble is on the up and up.
