Biography

8-Bit Ninjas are chipclash band from the West Midlands in the UK. They combine 8-bit and chip sounds with crunchy guitars to write bouncy pop music.

8-Bit Ninjas happened by accident. The result of Andy Cowley, up until this point a rock, indie and folk drummer, happening across Alice in Videoland’s ‘Outrageous!’ on his Creative Zen. Where this album came from, no-one is sure, but sparked an interest deep inside his twisted mind. Through AiV, he happened across Thermostatic and from then into the wonderful world of . Once he’d got his ears around a few more such artists, the vision was clear in his mind… He must contribute to the this new world of recycled electronica.

Armed with years of teeth-cutting on rock, indie and other alternative guitar-based music, and a fair bit of experience with home recording, electronics and vintage consoles and computers, weird and wonderful experiments were performed in his flat and the result was 8-Bit Ninjas.

The live line-up will also include at least Sam Busher on Bass guitar and spray-on trousers and Andy’s brother Leigh Cowley on various keyboards, percussion and synths and of course, hats.
