The Bookhouse Boys

The Bookhouse Boys' Catherine Turner

The Bookhouse Boys

Catch them at a calm moment and brace yourself for a storm. These boys toy effortlessly enough with melody and drama to shelve themselves firmly in the London Calling hall of fame. We love 'em...

If Muse and Lloyd Cole were to collaborate on the next Tarantino soundtrack, it might not sound a million miles from this. The Bookhouse Boys' single and London Calling chosen track, Dead, is an epic and no mistaking.

Nine members, two drum kits, a brass section and one commanding presence by way of Paul Van Oestren's vocals make these boys an orchestral force to be reckoned with.

Together two years, the band are now releasing through independent label Black Label Records.

They describe cutting their first record, Tonight, as their best moment so far, but we rather suspect that the imminent success of the single could top that.

Currently playing dates around the capital, The Bookhouse Boys have been entertaining London venues with their collective love of David Lynch and Scott Walker-influenced ballads.

Catch them while they're hot and you might just witness the darkest version of Kylie's Confide In Me you're ever likely to hear.

Keep up to speed on all the band's gigs and releases by following their MySpace link in the right-hand column of this page.
