Biography

‘Good evening, ladies and gentlemen. We are Monster Movie and this is how it all happened:

It started out as a joke and it still is. We were The Geeks and we still are. In 1989 we (Christian Savill and Sean Hewson) were a couple of hairy sixth formers with unlikely body shapes and unlovely faces. We had no plans other than to avoid hard labour, grown-up emotions and deep thought. We formed a band called The Geeks that consisted of us on guitars and anyone else that could bear to stand near to us. We played anything that was in E. The Geeks became Eternal (not literally, we are still mortal, much to our chagrin) and we had a steady line-up and some OK songs. We put out a record on Sarah Records but Sean wasn’t on it so it didn’t go Top Ten. We performed one gig which was 90% guitar tuning, 10% confusion. Christian, very sensibly, cried until Slowdive let him join them and they went on to invent Jazz-Funk.

After Slowdive broke up, Christian was anxious to play with someone uglier than him again and so we were back together. Though not romantically. We wrote some songs about sex toys and no one liked us. It was just like the old days. But it didn’t last. There were too many ideas and none of them were any good.

It is 1999. We work in an office - we hate it. We try to listen to modern music - we hate it. So, we try to make the music we want to hear. We hate that too but decide to call ourselves Monster Movie and carry on with it anyway.

    I just listened "Don't Know Why" from "To The Moon". It's so beautiful

    That said -- I am crazy excited about Neil Halstead's new collaboration with the guys from SeeFeel. They've put together a group called Black Hearted Brother, with their first album due Oct. 21, and the cuts that I've heard from it so far are completely awesome. After Monster Movie, it's the most exciting post-Slowdive material I've heard to date (and for what its worth, their sound is closer to Souvlaki -- more droney, in a good way -- than most of Monster Movie's stuff). Check out their FB page here: https://www.facebook.com/blackheartedbrother

    Very very very underrated. Probably the best post-Slowdive project out there.

    I'm pretty sure that Last Night Something Happened is one of the best albums I'll ever hear.
