Biography

Coming out of the post punk movement of the late 70’s Beat Rhythm Fashion created melodic moody intelligent songs of open chords and hypnotic drums.
The band were the brainchild of Brothers Dan and Nino Birch who as teenagers found themselves resident in the creatively inspiring environment of Wellington New Zealand in the late 70’s and early eighties.

There was a strong post punk arts scene there called the terrace scene so named because it revolved around a few houses on the street ‘the terrace’ up behind the main business district of wellington.

The band released three striking 7 inch singles on the Wellington Bunk Records label, (featuring the bands mutated anarchy symbol logo boldly in red and black on the cover) as well as having 2 tracks on the legendary **** (fourstars) compilation album (also featuring Lord of the Rings producer Fran Walsh in the Wall Sockets and life in the fridge exists), and 3 live tracks on the Wellington Zone compilation.
By the End of 1982 the band were ready to do the next stage of their upward career and decided to make the move to Melbourne Australia, but some how they got lost and phase 2 never happened as it should have for them.
In August 2007 Failsafe Records in New Zealand released a collection of the bands 3 singles and 10 unreleased tracks culled from live recordings.
This album is available from the label website (http://www.failsaferecords.com)
