Tip of the Week: Ocean Bottom Nightmare - What Would Judas Do?

This week, our tip comes from Ocean Bottom Nightmare, an eyebrow-raising rock trio hailing from Nottingham. Our chosen track is the band's debut single, What Would Judas Do? Over to Huw to introduce the tune:

The website they've put together to promote the single reminds us of last year's Challenge Swound! You get to ask what the band's drummer - the titular Judas - would do when faced with a situation of your choosing. So far, Judas has been asked what he'd do if Godzilla attacked, or if faced to choose between stilts for arms or beachballs for legs. Excellent questions, both.


As you might have guessed, when they're not screaming their tonsils red raw, OBN can often be found with their tongues in their cheeks. The band consists of Tom (vocals, bass), Jonny (vocals, guitar) and the aforementioned Judas (vocals, drums), and they make a remarkably ear-busting sound for a trio.

To date they've supported an impressive array of fine like-minded bands like Future of the Left, BaddiesThe Eighties Matchbox B-Line Disaster and Pulled Apart By Horses. If you're in Birmingham, you can see OBN live on the 19th at the Roadhouse. Londoners, head to the Stag's Head in Dalston on the 29th.
