"FUSE MAGAZINE Single review"

The debut single from one the 'most likely' bands around at the moment is probably the most exciting debut single of the year so far. The London based electro indie rockers have unleashed an absolute gem. A throbbing, pulsating, adrenaline rush that raises the social fallout from the 7/7 attacks on the city.

'London Town Is Falling Down' is a thoroughly exhilarating three minutes. Baying synths, growling bass, buzzing guitars and vocals with attitude add up to electro-indie that forces the fledgling genre to grow up and take a closer look at itself.

Take the most thrilling moments from early Boy Kill Boy singles, add Klaxons adrenaline and the zeitgeist currently ridden by Does It Offend You, Yeah? and others, throw in a big dollop of London punk delivery and watch as one of the year's most breathless debuts comes to life.


Debut single released September 2008 - London Town Is Falling Down. Being played on many regional stations in the UK..including 2XS in Sheffield, Wythenshawe in Manchester, BCBFM in Bradford and so on.



When trying to break up a fight that had erupted in a local pub where “O” used to promote gigs, he wondered for a moment whether there was an easier way to make a living - the response was a resounding NO. Music was the only living that he wanted to make.

Even a band trip to New York organised by an obsessed fan who turned out to be a schizophrenic wasn't enough to quell his passion for music. It's just all part and parcel of being in a band!

After a few false starts with a powerpop, thrash punk band "O" decided he wanted to deliver something more than a 2-chord cynical rant on speed. He met Darren at a local rehearsal studio and they played in various different bands together for the next few years. When their old singer left and other band members drifted off “O” decided to try his luck at singing and they became the duo, Black Bikini Alpha.

The band morphed into an electro-punk rock outfit, brought together over a love of gritty, hard hitting but uplifting music. For them, it’s about the songs and making that important connection with people – on record and live.

The songs are inspired by growing up, living and working in London. The themes are wide ranging from, describing post-7/7 tension in ‘London Town is Falling Down’ through to the importance of hope in times of adversity on ‘Reason To Believe’, and down to the late night underworld sleaze of ‘Dance Like A…’. Their song ‘Swag’ was released on a US compilation last month and is now on rotation on Californian Radio. Their anthemic song about sexual experimentation ‘Kicking and Screaming’ was included in the ‘BEST OF’ selection on the BBC6 Music Tom Robinson show and has also been picked up by
DC Shoes for an online advertising campaign. They’ve been touring UK extensively in support of their debut single release and have been interviewed by Kerrang!, BBC Bristol and BBC Cambridge amongst many others, along the way.

Black Bikini Alpha’s energetic and evocative live show has earned them main support slots with Fun Lovin’Criminals, Reef and Feeder. They also spent a few weeks gigging in New York which was organised by an obsessed fan who turned out to be a schizophrenic. All part and parcel of being in a band!

Catch them now before they explode and say you were there at the beginning….
