Yessir! We have a new band signed to Crunchy Frog. We are very excited about it – although some of the people are actually signed already. But we DID manage to sign 1 new person. And his name isn’t even Ollie North.
So who are these people? Are they even boys? Why not let the band speak for themselves. In the below letter to the world population, they try to explain:
We are Oliver North Boy Choir, formerly known as Pierre. A name even the artful dodgers at Crunchy Frog found too provocative! So, we changed identity. Who wouldn’t?
So, why are we called ONBC? Because we thought that the face of one of the ugliest, dirtiest and filthiest affairs in American foreign policy through the years (Oliver North) ought to have a choir to his appraisal, a.k.a. us.
The Iran-Contra scandal involved the US supporting the Iranians (while also supporting the Iraqis) in their mutual war, supporting the Contras in Nicaragua to overthrow the democratically elected government AND financing the whole charade with a deadly mix of guns and drugs. Much like us. We just make an equally deadly cocktail of pop and indie and support both Kylie and Dat Politics.
We’re all three from a petty little town in the South, not worth mentioning.
Ivan and Mikkel knew each other through what in the music business is known as “da groovy and excellent yodel punk”.
Not reeeeeally worth mentioning either. Their top-hit Mr. Rustifil never even made it to the local radio, Radio Mojn. Thank god for that.
Anyway, this rock solid companionship evolved like mammals into stars from the Pierre band including Camilla (the sexy biiiaatch and Mikkel’s wife, so stay away goddammmit!) a bunch of sad songs made on a lousy computer with a dreadful microphone and into this shining example of “how to be” and “youknowwho”. The songs we make now are also made on a lousy computer and a microphone slightly resembling the first one. We’re just so much cooler now; like robots are cooler than mankind and motor oil is cooler than olive oil.
Ok, here’s a neat detail: ONBC has seen the future. Instead of loosing a mega bunch of dollars and cents by releasing our songs in one go on a disc that needs to be shipped and handled and so on, we’ll be releasing songs through iTunes and the likes gradually, like the sugar dew from the aphis ass, like occasional rain in the Mojave, like – you know – once in a while.
A single with a b-side is the deal. You’ll never stop yearning for those Oliver North Boy Choir products!
Also, because we have no stinkin’ time because of them bloody kids we shan’t be coming to a theatre near you. Sorry. Your ears and imagination will have to suffice. Maybe one day. But not now.
Members are in perfect order: Ivan, Camilla and Mikkel.

Base: Copenhagen, Denmark
In case you are wondering: Yes, it is Mikkel and Camilla from epo-555 that make up 2/3 of the ONBC. As Camilla left epo-555 as singer and keyboard-player becasue of her (in order of appearance) pregnancy, childbirth and breastfeeding, she and her two choirboys will now focus on recording their singles and releasing them for downloads only. No albums. No cd’s. No touring. No live gigs. No nothing – apart from sweet sweet music available world wide shortly after it’s conceived and performed.
Their first single “Adrenaline” will be released on sunday March 4th. Meanwhile you can pre-listen and even download an exclusive track “Cobra” from their myspace-page.
