I just discovered this band. I first heard about them from HighFidelity?
with the song Dry the Rain
. I decided i was interested and began to explore. I found a bunch of mp3's and found that I liked everything I heard. I looked to see which album contained most of the songs I liked, and they were spread evenly through all three of their albums (The Beta Band
, The Three E.P.'s
and Hot Shots II
). I decided to order all three and I love them all. TheBetaBand
originated in London, with their first live performance in '97. The kind of music is... well... RadioHead
aparently listened to a bunch of TheBetaBand
when they were making Kid A
. For more info, try http://www.astralwerks.com/
. They also toured with RadioHead
this past ('01) summer. Some of their singles include:
If you're interested in listening, both Kurt and I have the cd's on our computers. My computer is Sludge Puppy, in the folder mp3, and the sub-folder The Beta Band. Kurt's computer is Tigris, and it would be in his Full Cd's folder.
