BullyBones are a punchy rock n roll band who have a ferocious sour sweat soaked garage-rock single coming out on Nov 17th.
‘Deadflower Girl’, is a wild, psychobilly track, deliciously evil, and perfect to exclusively premiere on Halloween!
Bullybones are named after a The Birthday Party song. They make decidedly catchy melodies to complement their evident-enough energy, a little sweetness to offset the sour sweat that soaks so compellingly through their tracks to date.
Having first come together as school friends before realising their band ambitions, the members of BullyBones – today comprising Charlie Pullinger on vocals and guitar; Aaron Lee on guitar; Illy Webster on bass; and Elliot Little on drums – “got serious” in 2012, and haven’t looked back since.
In their own words, the band’s influences span “60 years and several continents”, but there’s an unmistakable British resonance to the tracks that make up their initial missive to the wider world. It’s not exactly small-town boys fighting out into the bigger picture, more the declaration of immediate, easy opportunities extinguished, a local circuit already won – and now’s the time to carry their fervour across to that next, giant step.
You know when you hear a band for the first time and they sound like they mean it – and that’s what’s here. Vitriol, certainly, but tempered by an already established pop sensibility, where messages aren’t carried on affronts but by accessibility.
You might catch traces of garage-rockers past in the shadows dancing about the snarls, or sniff out the scent of The Stones when they could move without risking hip replacement surgery. You might, because these bands carried comparable qualities: allies in alignment, aiming at something more than what’s previously been afforded them. Birthday, Christmas, piss-up for no particular reason: whatever the occasion, BullyBones have come to party, and only a bleedin’ idiot would doubt their potential.
