Here’s a couple of new Bisons demos for you to listen to in the morning to help ease your Black Friday hangovers!

They were recorded live in the Westgarth SC by Matthew “Milkbones” Brown onto a Fostex M80 1/4” 8 track reel to reel, with a cheap Behringer desk and a couple of SM57s. Sound alright like. Cheers Matt!

We recorded a couple of live demos to tape with Matt “Milkbones” Brown upstairs at The Westgarth Social Club yesterday. We’ll put ‘em on Soundcloud for your ears later this week!
Isn’t it lovely when people say nice things? Thanks Ross!Be sure to check out his new rock outfit RIVALS who are really rather splendid:

MERRY CHRISTMAS FROM THE BORO BISONS TRIO X
We completed our 2012 World Tour last night at The Central in Gateshead, England, UK.  Thanks to Crazy Arm, Rivals and Lessons for sharing a Tuesday evening with us.
It’s been an emotional 12 months that’s seen us visit all corners of the globe - from Wakefield to Newcastle, via Hartlepool. See you all in 2013!
Bob Fischer kindly played Not Lucid on his BBC Introducing show on BBC on Saturday night. You can listen back online if you like that sort of thing. We’re about 1hr24 in:

Amazing Radio

Hiya.

We were played on Amazing Radio on Monday as part of Charlie Ashcroft’s Audition Show. Thanks Charlie!

He played Not Lucid and you can listen back to it again here:

Mr Ashcroft has also written some very kind words about us in his Artrocker column:

"Bisons are a trio from Middlesbrough who’ve got a rhythmic take on noisy, mathy, punk rock. Repeated listens to ‘Not Lucid’ suggest that they’re successfully channelling the energy of Strike Anywhere and the aggression of Hot Water Music and yet still sounding fresh. They’ve been in the studio with Chris McManus at Blank Studios in Newcastle and I’m hoping for more gems from them next year."

That’s definitely the most accurate thing anybody has said about us so far - it’s nice when somebody “gets it”, isn’t it!? Cheers Charlie!

We’re being played on Amazing Radio again this Tuesday mid-morning on Chris Martin’s show. You’ll be able to download our track for free from his website as of 10am on Monday morning:

Once again, big thanks to Charlie Ashcroft! Hopefully we can deliver some more gems next year…

This is our next gig. See you there!

Fog on the Tyne

HOLA. The Cut Ups have sadly cancelled their Northern dates in December, so our gig in Newcastle with them on the 1st is no longer happening. However, we’re now playing with Crazy Arm, Rivals and Lessons at The Central on Tuesday 11th December. See you there!

Grafting.

We had a class laugh in Newcastle t’other week with Pure Graft, Farman and Wade in Graft’s practice room in the Offquay Buildings in Newcastle. Hope you had a good time at The Fest, lads!

We’ll be back in Newcastle on Saturday 1st December, this time at The Northumberland Arms with The Cut Ups. Should be good. See you there.

In other news, we’re hopefully going to demo a few new songs later this month… keep your ears peeled.

Up the Boro.

1-0.

Here’s a choice clip from today’s Evening Gazette… really starting to regret the in-joke of telling everybody we sound like Foo Fighters. We don’t.
