Biography

Foodshelter&clothing started out as a side project of Bong and James, founding members of “the bottles” (1988-1993), an avant-pop outfit (they started out as an experimental band, writing stuff in the vein of seminal artists like Can, Neu, the Doors, the Velvets, Roxy Music, David Bowie, the Who et.al.), then mutated into a power-pop 7 man army specializing in genre-bending opuses, not unlike what they still do in the present Inspired by disparate musical genres, only showcased their eclectic influences. From early 80s synthpop (e.g. Heaven 17, Human League, blancmange, Yazoo) to late 80s Manc-Rock (e.g. Happy Mondays, Stone Roses, Inspiral Carpets) to 90s dance music (and all its ever-increasing sub-genres), not to mention their love of heavy metal (they recently did a live tribute to Napalm Death!) and old skool punk and hardcore, as well as traditional jazz and r & b, hip-hop, and even film scores. And no, they cant be tagged as music elitists, coz these blokes also clink their glasses to Kylie Minogue and watch all the pop videos they can handle on TV. After all they were once chosen as one of the bands handpicked on MTV Asias “OUT-OF-THE-BOX”segment(1997). They also had their share of the media with tracks played over NU107, plus countless of fanzine articles, as well as the occasional write up on the national dailies. And oh yeh, you might be wondering how they got their name, well it was inspired by the Alison Anders movie, “gas, food, and lodging”.
