Bushido - ‘Romeo’
With no blogs from me in quite a while, I’ve got a backlog of artists to write about. But since I couldn’t decide who to blog on, I just picked up the first CD in the pile. And that’s how we’ve all arrived at Melbourne three piece Bushido.
*Edit – so previously I had written that Bushido’s account had kept being deleted by the MySpace hierarchy, which it had. But I’m happy to say that’s it been reinstated and all the issues have been cleared up. Check out Bushido’s MySpace page at http://www.myspace.com/bushidomusic and you can read about the whole situation. Anyway, back to your normal blog reading…
But Bushido have been kicking around for a few years, playing some major Aussie festivals including the inaugural Pyramid Rock Festival and supporting the likes of Cog and Karnivool. And it’s no surprise really – these guys are riff masters and pull the shit off live as well with precision. I’ve only managed to catch them live once and they definitely got the room moving with the grooving tunes.
Their debut EP Last Breath is completely sold out, but their brand new EP Mercina is available from Rare Records. They’re not creating earth-shattering original music, but it’s groovy as hell and if you’re a fan of heavy music like I am, Bushido are following the right path.
