Biography

Leeds-based indie rock super-group featuring members of Hookworms, Sky Larkin, Komakino and You Animals.

Menace Beach were formed by core members Ryan Needham (formerly the lead singer of Derby band Komakino) and Liza Violet (currently of Department M) in 2012.[1] Although the band have a revolving cast of musicians, it has invariably included Nestor Matthews of Sky Larkin, Matt Spalding of You Animals and MJ of Hookworms. They have also played with Robert Lee of Pulled Apart By Horses and Paul Draper of Mansun, who provided backing vocals and guitar on their BBC Radio 6 Music Marc Riley session. [2] As a consequence of their notable members, the band have been called a supergroup.[3] Menace Beach have released on Too Pure and French label Desire, but are currently signed to Memphis Industries; they are set to release a debut album with them in 2014. They are currently produced by MJ of Hookworms at his Suburban Home Studio, and their video for Drop Outs was animated by Tom Hudson of Pulled Apart By Horses. Despite having never released an album, the band have had coverage from NME,[4] Drowned In Sound,[5] This Is Fake DIY,[6] Rough Trade[7] and The Guardian.[8]
