Monday Morning You Look So Fine: Bed On Bricks.

Having been aptly named by Rebecca Kahn as the "tallest band in the land", Bed On Bricks back up their stature with more than just sheer size... they have an uncanny ability to look like a bunch of guys from Cape Town with little interest in posturing, that can take a stage and practically burn it down, no matter the time-slot or location.

This year's Oppikoppi was no exception; a mellow exchange backstage, and then the guys had the crowd in the palm of their hands. It's grand to see a band like this just deliver... with all the hype and chutzpah that surround bands new and old, it is a pleasure to meet a bunch of okes who let their music do the talking.

"Seems like just the other day,
I was inspired with what we had to say,
All the flavours came together as one...

They don't say "fuck" on the radio." - Bed On Bricks

That, and my daughter always insists on playing "Oom Mike" on my iPod when in the car... namely, the song "Funny". Check it out on their MySpace, and check here for my updates.
