Bambi, Get Over It
Let me tell you a story. Are you sitting comfortably and all that?
I was an amiable child, never prone to tantrums and was always happy to go along with whatever my two older brothers wanted. At the age of three, my brothers and I were taken to the local cinema to see the latest Disney film, Bambi. It was probably my mum's way of distracting 3 young boys for a Saturday afternoon but as with any cinema trip my ma had to fork out for a whole heap of cinema refreshments. Now, someone in my family - i don't want to point fingers - bought a Terry's Chocolate Orange and then let their 3 year old baby brother munch on it for a while. About halfway through the film, I started throwing up everywhere and my brothers, my mum and I had to leave the cinema.
To this day, I still wary of eating a Chocolate Orange and I still haven't seen the rest of Bambi, in fear of another projectile session, and so I have never seen the reknowned scene wittily referenced by this Norwich 6 piece's band-name.
Luckily Bambi, Get Over It and their lo-fi folkabilly sound don't have the same effect on me. In fact, tracks like the rampant Badman, with its quick-fire strumming and confident wails, are a joy to behold. Having only formed in October '07, its surprising that the band sound so tight and together, even on these low production demos, and that each song seems like a finished product means that they won't stay unsigned for too much longer. The promise of future live shows around the UK and beyond is exciting as they defintiely sound like a band to start an all-night hoe-down and I can't wait to be a part of it.
