The Be Be See: brought to you by London Calling

The Be Be See on London Calling

The Be Be See

This lot have a manifesto. They want to make people dance, think, fight, laugh, cry! And a lot more besides. So, for those less familiar with the 'Golf Rave' genre, we dug a little deeper into what The Be Be See are all about...

The Be Be See, despite sounding like an institution in their own right, are in fact relative newbies in the music world.

Formed only last year, through a tangled web of origins (namely Tuffnell Park, Kentish Town and Hackney Road) the foursome decided to get it together and go on tour, having discovered they couldn't be sued. Joy!

Considering themselves more pre-punk than post-punk, the band indulge themselves with the Stooges and the Velvet Underground. 

Choosing linear pop over angular shouting, The Be Be See also aspire to blend early Roy Music / Eno with Pulp and techno … GOOD techno that is.

up their sleeves

As well as releasing singles - their London Calling featured track Disney Eyes is out June 4 - the band like nothing better than a good tour.

Lab testing, 1, 2, 3: The Be Be See live

Live shows have heard covers of both Primal Scream and Julian Cope. But that's not all they've got up their sleeves. Rumour has it St Etienne's Like A Motorway could be next on their hit list.

For more on The Be Be See, visit their website, myspace.com/thebebesee (see links, right).

There you can find up to date gig listings, a host of images, some in glorious Technicolour, plus rare video footage. It's exciting stuff.
