BEARDS  (leeds, uk)
at first beardsí sound might point to freethinking post punks such as the minutemen, units or delta 5 but the songs wrestle it out through the full gamut of noisy punk-disco, progressive time signatures, moments of majestic aor, post-hardcore angles and chaotic beefheart-esque stomps, successively waylaying any ideas of progness or punkness along the way.

beards formed in leeds in 2007 and have toured the uk & europe several times. their first album brick by boulder is out on ouse.
