Bunnies

Bunnies

BandRockAlternative

We are a heavy psychedelic science fiction rock band from western Mass. We're currently working on our futuristic concept album "Future Shock", to be produced by Frank Black. We try to make music that distracts us (and hopefully the listener) from everyday life and takes us (them?) into outer space.

Biography

Bunnies are a science fiction rock band from Northampton, Massachusetts. We started as The Bennies (in 1998), and under that name we toured with the likes of Frank Black and the Catholics and the Pixies. Then in 2005 we had a vision of the future. And the future is big. The future is weird. The future is far out! So we decided we needed to sound like that. And we also decided that we were no longer Bennies. We are Bunnies. We have many influences... Melvins, Devo, Roxy Music, Brian Eno, David Bowie, T. Rex, Beatles, Flower Travelling Band, Deerhoof, Tiny Tim, too many to list. Our music is hopefully an amalgamation of all of these and more. Other bands we've played shows with include T.V. on the Radio, Mission of Burma, the Datsuns, Rye Coalition, Mobius Band, and We are the Seahorses.

Discography

We recorded some albums under the name The Bennies, but we are still working on our very first Bunnies record, which will be called "Future Shock." The recording will begin later this year, with Frank Black as producer. In addition, we just recorded a cover song of the Pixies' "Alec Eiffel" for the upcoming American Laundromat Records release "Dig for Fire: A Tribute to the Pixies". Roger Miller from Mission of Burma produced the track, and plays mellotron and guitar on it as well. We also did a cover of Oingo Boingo's "Weird Science" for the same label's release called "High School Reunion: A Tribute to those great '80's Films".
