The 40 Watt Band

Kapellen, Belgium

#1 Jun 24, 2008
Hi, we are The 40 Watt Band & this is what we do. We play early R.E.M. songs & some more recent staff favourites. We are surely not the world's greatest R.E.M.-fans/connaisseurs but we really do like the music of Athens' finest & when we play together this strange thing happens: tingling Rickenbacker sounds, a tight & adventurous rhythm section & this "voice of Harold" melting together in a capturing Chronic/Murmur/Fables/Pageant style. No keyboards or strings. No T-Rex moves (sorry). We just recorded 3 songs on a sunny sunday afternoon: "Wolves, Lower", "Radio Free Europe" & "Sitting Still". Our good producer Rob mixed & edited them on a cloudy saturday evening. This is a demo. Hope you like it and if so please let us know (especially if you're a concert/festival organiser looking for some rockin' alternative garage-college rockband!). Our catalogue now consists of 20 plus songs & is constantly growing & evolving. Have a good one!
