It is NO secret that tinybluechildren are the antithesis
of todays painting by numbers pop. This five
piece guitar band play storming live sets, winning over
the hearts and minds of their faithful following.
The line-up - Gareth Jones (vocals) 'Gaz kicks up a storm
that falls midway between Eddie Vedder and Adam Duritz' (Logo
Magazine), Ben Alexander (guitar), Rob Houghton (guitar),
Dean Cook (drums) and bassist Nick Smith - provide a
fusion of rock that has been likened to Pearl Jam having
a streetfight with Coldplay while delivering with the
sheer hard assed emotion of Hundred Reasons & Rage
Against The Machine (phew....try qouting that after 10
pints of lager !)
To define tinybluechildren would rob them of their clever
rock fusion 'Definitely a sound with huge potential, I
have seen much less accomplished bands on MTV2' (Andy
Quirk - DrownedinSound.com).
In the last couple of years tinybluechildren have
delivered numerous demos, released an internet only album
& ep (The Blue Room & Smells Like TV), put out a
very highly press rated 6 trk ep titled 'Wide Eyed Ideas'
on Birmingham indie imprint Shotgun Charlie (shotguncharlie.co.uk)
and have now released their latest 'kick ass' single
titled 'Authority' for another 'top' up-and coming indie
label Incubator Records (incubator-records.com).
The vibe is out there and interest is building in
tinybluechildren thanks to a bunch of London performances
at Sound, The Garage &
'Dublin Castle', 'Sometimes you hear a band that you can
imagine playing the main stage at the likes of
Glastonbury they make that big a sound....tinybluechildren
are one of these bands' (Manilla magazine).
'Their songs explode again and again, fans of Hundred
Reasons, Pearl Jam, Stereophonics and REM will be
intoxicated by this performance' (UK Rocknet).
With their distinctive sound and ever-so-slightly unusual
name its fair to say that questions are usually asked
about the music first and the name tinybluechildren
second ! The music speaks for itself but the name is the
result of drunken musings as to what the shortform tbc
truly meant. According to these guys it means tinybluechildren
so now you know, make everything tbc!
