Bone Idol

When did you form?

In 2004

How did you get together?

We were all friends, and we decided to form a band.

How would you describe your music?

  • Drums pound with a hard, fast punk-beat, with Keith Moon-esque improv.
  • Basslines are a fusion of Clash/Muse/Rage, with a sprinkle of the almighty Flea
  • Guitars wail punk-ska-rock riffs til your ears bleed
  • Vocals must be heard to be believed

This combines to make an awesome fun, bouncy, ska punk-style.
