MUFT Münchner Union zur Förderung von Talenten e.V.:
Mehr muß man nach den beiden von MUFT präsentierten München-Shows wohl nicht schreiben:
Spawned from the womb, brought up on rage picked up some instrument’s and started jamminn and a year later they played their first gig in 2005 at their school they all attended and been making a racket ever since! Sharing the stage with The Buzzcocks, The Vibrators, Vice Squad, Viv Albertine, The Adolescents, The Casualties and many other sick bands over the years!
After three very successful tours through Europe (one as a support for Bishops Green, two headliner tours) Maid Of Ace are coming back in Spring 2017. These Four Girls will kick your asses!
“A lot of assumptions are made about us, like that we’ve been masterminded by some manager bloke, but that couldn’t be more wrong!” Let us introduce you to IDestroy – a group of feisty females from Bristol, ready to take on the world. Fiercely passionate and determined to prove themselves in the music industry, IDestroy have already revelled hard on tour and released a raw and powerful EP. But who exactly are these punk dynamos? We catch up with members of the band to talk all things party, punk and pretty much everything in-between!
You only have to be introduced to these ladies, to appreciate their vibe. Bec excitedly elucidates their timetables: “Becky is on her way to Paris to do an interview for a documentary about Rickenacker Basses. I’m off to ATP Festival in Prestatyn, and Jenn is lecturing at a music college!” This clearly isn’t a lethargic bunch – exceptionally dedicated to their music, IDestroy are a powerhouse of energy and enthusiasm, which will only benefit their careers. It would be a delight to see them go far; they deserve success.
But how did these Bristol beauties meet? They explain, “Bec had been writing a collection of rock songs and needed a band to work with, she saw Becky and Jenn at a party and formed the band then and there over a few drinks!” And we all know that only the best ideas are formed whilst revelling…
As for their sound, IDestroy are original and interesting. With their EP, Vanity Loves Me clocking in at just over eleven minutes, it’s a short little number, but don’t let that fool you – it packs a punch. Reminiscent of punk legends The Slits, the perfectly formed melodies and bass lines drive the sound forward allowing the band to concentrate on showcasing their personalities and that vital punk edge. Bec proudly asserts the band’s feelings surrounding their creation, “It was recently described as ‘Party Punk’ – we think this sums it up pretty well.” Indeed, their simple yet perfectly formed concepts are archetypal Punk; loud, lucid and assured.
IDestroy are a honeyed mix of their idols: The Gossip, Beth Ditto and Motorhead. Delightfully chatty, full of energy and obsessed with music, it would seem that now their fame in Bristol has reached a high, that they’re ready to take over the world. Bec giggles, “Getting extra attention for the band is always great! It’s amazing to see people at our shows all over the UK wearing our T Shirts and wanting photos with us.” She continues, determinedly, “We want the to push the band as far as it will go, so it’s cool that the fans are getting excited about us already.”
Whilst Vanity Loves Me is a fusion of angst and raw emotions, IDestroy’s personalities appear to be in stark contrast and the trio seem to be thriving amongst the alternative music scene. Elucidating their tour antics comes all too easy: “We were up until around 6am, drinking with a local riot grrl band,” The band giggles, “We gate-crashed and open mic night and ended up playing a full band set whilst smashed!” Yet, make no mistake, whilst these girls like to party, there’s no doubt in their minds that there’s a job to be done. Bec looks astute, “We think it’s so important to get involved in all aspects of the music industry and to show others that we belong here”. And belong they do – with festivals this summer and some song-writing plans underway, IDestroy are all set to rock this summer.
If being in one of Bristol’s best up and coming bands wasn’t enough, when the girls aren’t in IDestroy, Bec plays guitar and song writes for art rockers, The Blue Aeroplanes and Becky plays bass for metal band, Triaxis. 100% dedicated to their craft, IDestroy are definitely a band to keep your eye on. Put Vanity Loves Me on at your next party, you won’t be disappointed…
Powerful west-coast style Punk Rock underlined with melodic vocals - hoffentlich haben die Münchner dann vielleicht doch schon ihr erstes Album mit im Gepäck. Zeit wirds... :-)
