Bis: Music For Animations

Leave it to Auntie Beeb to get a Scottish post-punk trio to supply the theme song and a bunch of other songs for an animated children's program called BB3B. That is what happened to Bis in 2005. The band members also appeared on the show as cartoons themselves. The material was rounded up for an album recently and Music For Animations is proof that there is no need to dumb down to appease the kids.

Steven Clark (Sci-fi Steven), John Clark (John Disco), and Amanda MacKinnon (Manda Rin) were having a whale of a time with this. Plenty of fuzzy reverb, wailing guitars and singing their hearts in a way that will never make it past the music department honchos at Disney, are making this an album for all ages. It can be used as a stepping tone to get the offspring to like the B52s, They Might Be Giants, and the Ramones. Play loud.

Music For Animations is released via Last Night From Glasgow (CD, vinyl, digital).
