Walk On Music on Noughts and Exes and Shelves

with 2 comments

Subject title’s a bit hard to follow, I know. Patrick wrote another blog entry about us, about our upcoming slot for Noughts and Exes. You can read the whole thing here.

Below is an excerpt, which came from a revised band bio that Brian wrote. I thought he wrote quite well, then I remembered, of course, he’s from PR. Those guys…

Shelves (pic above) are the support act for Hong Kong band Noughts And Exes’ gig at Home club on Thursday 18 August 2011.

Singapore band Shelves is a come-back of sorts. With close to 20 years of experience in Singapore’s indie music scene between the members playing in their previous bands (Silverspy, Suchness, Livonia and Leeson), that itself seems to mean little in today’s fast-changing society of instant food, services and music tastes. For Noel Yeo (Vox, Guitars), Ritchie Melvin Ho (Guitars, Vox), Brian Leery (Bass) and Robin Chua (Drums), they were boys struggling to be men in the 90’s. Fast forward to 2011, they are men struggling to be boys again, finding solace in the cathartic arms of playing heartfelt power pop songs that promise the aching melodies reminiscent of Teenage Fanclub, delivered with the urgency of Weezer and insouciance of Pavement.

  1. Just for the record, Noel wrote the first and last lines. And they are the only lines that matter.. everything else is just filler material 😀
