I’m working on a video teaser for the new album by Melody’s Echo Chamber.
What I’ve heard so far is awesss.
Kurt Vile at Interstellar Rodeo. Edmonton, 2013.
Peter Bibby grew up around Midland, Western Australia. At 19, he quit his job of 3 years and went busking around Perth and Fremantle, immersing himself in a world of drunken trashbaggery and mad public balladeering. He learned to play songs on the sidewalk, screaming at the world like a wild eyed street-urchin-Necromancer - Grabbing pedestrians by the throat to SQUEEZE until they were incanting the words to a song they never knew they knew…or something like that. During that time he and his buddy Mackay, collectively known as Frozen Ocean, realised they could play at pubs in exchange for beer, so they started doing that as often as possible.
After a while, Bibby found himself with a collection of self indulgent songs about girls, chairs, and all the other emotional crash-bangs of a twenty-something year old australian tramp. Mackay thought, maybe rightly, that it was bollocks, so Peter enlisted the help of Adam and Anetta and formed Fucking Teeth. Not long after releasing their debut album ’That is You When You are a Gutter’, Bibby moved to Melbourne, where he formed the Bottles of Confidence with Sirs Nicholas Allballs and Johnny Stiff.
Ever since, the Bottles have played a bunch of gigs, made the proletariate boogie down like your favorite christmas drunkle and recorded an album, which is set to be released mid-late 2014 on Spinning Top.
Bibby has been described as ‘a naughty bastard with a heart of gold and a voice of rotting grapes’ aswell as ‘a sweet cup of sauce’ and ‘an absolute cunt’. His ability to perform under the influence of enough alcohol to kill a rhino is admirable, yet terrifying. Somebody get this man a doctor, or a fishing rod.
