in late 2012/early 2013 Neil was in two bands, but the songs/ideas he was writing didn’t really fit either band, so he decided to start his own band. One of these bands also featured Graeme, who was also writing a lot of material that didn’t fit his current band. These ‘ideas’ became the first batch of BoDC songs, a lot of which ended up on their debut EP ‘Together We Fall’ (released Nov 2013). Neil and Antoinette met through work a few years prior to all this, but Neil didn’t know she was a singer until he mentioned that he was starting a band. The three then set out to find a drummer, and eventually found Andrew via an online ad in October 2013. Andrew emigrated to Australia in 2016 to be replaced by Craig Conkie. Andrew returned in 2017 and rejoined the band.
The Band recorded their debut album ‘Of The Night’ at the Parlour Recording Studio (Evil Scarecrow, Napalm Death, Evile) in Kettering, and it was released by us in 2015. The album was preceded by their debut (double A-side) Single ‘Don’t Panic / Just A Little More’. The band released a series of singles following the album. Following Andrew’s return the band embarked on new recordings resulting in the single “Bunched Up Bradley”, and the second album “Motus Octo”.
