Barse was a 77 style punk rock band from Co. Durham, England. They were formed by Andy and Gash in 1997 and the story ended targically last December (2006) when Gash, the main lyricist and song writer and the only original member left in the band, was found dead in his apartment. In their existence Barse put out two albums, two singles and most recently a split single with The Heartburns and played shows mainly in Newcastle area and oddly enough, due to label connections, in Finland. The production of Barse's third and possibly their best album had luckily been taken to its final stages before Gash's death, so it will be released posthumously in 2007 on Hell's Tone Records.
