Biography

The Story
Music is a funny thing, it can make you laugh, cry, rejoice and recline. It can force anger, despair and enthusiasm, yet not a soul on this earth will ever understand how? It can be as simple as a couplet, riff, or rhyme, but for the life we have we won’t understand why? A chord might strike E, connotations of blues, a chord might strike D, connotation of sprite, but when all is well, bad, grave or good music will still live. It is easy to create an over enthusiastic view of what an artist thinks their music is, but honesty has been swept under the carpet of bravado and the inability to stand honest in the light of perception. ‘The Velcro Teddybears’ were formed in strife of these emotions. Emotions imperative to the salvation of a world in which ‘squeaky clean’ has become a fault line waiting to be jumped upon by those who understand that life is not necessarily that way. To tell the tale of ‘The Velcro Teddybears’, we must first go back to the times of the ‘un-‘noughties’’, that were the schooldays, a time in which the ‘Spice Girls’, ‘East 17’ and ‘Take That’ were rife, two lads were making a route through ‘Penistone Grammar School’ independent of this. They were not aware of their childhood history of fire engines, and slides as they mixed in different circles, but fortune works in funny ways; ‘Rhythm always finds Blues’. ‘Red Sky’ in most circles can be accepted as an agreeable ending to events. The term, most associated as a warning to farmers, was in this case a catalyst for the re-introduction of two old friends. This band inspired by the greats of ‘Led Zeppelin’, ‘Deep Purple’ and ‘Black Sabbath’ would see an episode of education occur, throughout which gigging in drinking holes, and funny times in the Yorkshire area took precedent.
