The Full E.P "The Cause... The Defect" Is On Reverbnation

Yeah. . Like it says above..

Its May Already.....Jebus!!

Sorry about the lame non blogging as of late, things have been so hectic it really makes hit hard just to sit down and get things done.. :(

Last month we played the uber good The Music Box, Salisbury, which was our first headline show ever and our first home away from home gig as we have adopted Salisbury since the closure of Andover's only Venue The George Inn (The George Venue).

It was a great show with an amazing crowd. It was great to see so many familiar faces and it was all that more special that we were being supported by Echotape which seems a little fucked up as these guys are all over the place right now and still took the time to support us. We love you. We should also say we love all our new followers from Salisbury and our previous show in Basingstoke - still a little raw that we cant play in the town in which we live, maybe oneday we will have a venue that will have us.

As you can see from the previous post we have had another fair review of the E.P from Hit The Floor Magazine 3/5 was the score on the door and some very generous words. We have been really lucky that all the great reviewers have seemed to have gotten where we are coming from.

They seem to understand we are not trying to be anything we aint. We don't have anything more than a want to play our music our way and not throw money away on the fashionable pretense that a lot of bands seem to fall into., which is a good thinh yerr??!!??.

We are still looking to record another EP and maybe try and get TCTD and the new one released digitally as a double E.P. Not to sure yet, We still like the fact we have given away all of our music so far for free and hopefully have given listeners a bit of faith that we aint here to make a quick quid and rinse the public. I wont say the word "Fans" as that makes us sound like cocks but....

Next gig is a little Solo Acoustic blitz by Richie on Friday 16th May in Andover for the Enham Trust charity. follow him on Twitter @kurbdmusic or @richietowerton.

Hopefully will be updating this a bit more frequently. See ya later :) K

E.P Review by Hit The Floor Magazine - 3 and a bit / 5.

We are loving Hit The Floor Magazine for this fingerblastingly good review of The Cause... The Defect E.P.... Here It Is!

KURBd‘s way of thinking is that stripping everything down is key to producing no nonsense music that can really strike the person that’s listening to it. So, with the release of their EP The Cause… The Defect, they had the perfect opportunity to showcase just how they felt – and the end result was impressive to say the least.
The production and recording of the free, 3-song EP isn’t top notch obviously, but you have to give the Hampshire based band some merit for the fact that they did it all themselves, with no label and no strings attached to any ‘scenes’. The record kicks off with ‘Beware The Silence‘ which has a fairly haunting introduction, but then transforms in to something that sounds wonderfully nostalgic; a taste of the 90′s with 2014 technology. The vocals and guitar riffs are incredibly Kurt Cobain-esque and have the listener transfixed with the simplicity of it all.
‘Wreck’ is a slightly slower song but still hits the spot with an epic bassline and intriguing lyrics that highlight the band’s strengths with how much impact it creates, while the final track ‘Kerosene’ is the complete opposite; an offering of pure, driving punk rock that will have you headbanging along in no time. This is an EP that sticks, so you may find yourself, days later, with one of the songs stuck in your head even from just one listen.
KURBd may only have a relatively small following at the moment, but with the ability they exhibited throughout this EP it’s clear that they have the potential to go far by continuing to dazzle audiences with their straightforward techniques and tunes. For what it is, The Cause… The Defect is the product of sheer diligence and raw talent that deserves a listen. You can download the EP for free right here.
