The band on stage at the Marr's Bar
And What Will Be Left Of Them?
Darkworld Fanzine called them "the best proto-post-neo-punk-electro-poptart band ever." See what you think.
Blasting out of the Midlands with whisky in their bellies and songs in their hearts, And What Will Be Left Of Them? are “the best proto-post-neo-punk-electro-poptart band ever” (Darkworld Fanzine).
Not only have they successfully toured Germany, Holland and the UK on more than one occasion, they also supported one release with a tour of motorway service stations. That this was done in the month of November shows honest DIY grit that is refreshing to witness.
Careful with that chainsaw
However, it is not all work with this six-piece, with a history of drink related stories that would make even the most die hard booze-Britain candidate blush, including falling asleep on stage, punching yourself unconscious and unwittingly causing your body to develop Alcohol-Induced-Acute-Pancreatitis, AWWBLOT certainly know when to have a good time. Stopping is the problem.
With radio support from Andrew Marston, Steve Lamacq, Huw Stephens, Jon Kennedy, Marsha Shandur and countless other stations and internet shows, the band's name now carries a lot of weight and not just because of its length.
Support slots with such acts as; ˇForward Russia!, Art Brut, We Start Fires, Misty's Big Adventure, Untitled Musical Project, Lupen Crook, The Pigeon Detectives, Get Cape Wear Cape Fly, Kate Nash and even a couple of Smiths, have all gone to enhance AWWBLOT's reputation as Worcester’s finest and England's art-pop darlings.
