Biography

There is more than one artist with this name:

1) The Spectacle was a band from Bodø, Norway. They had a truly unique sound, combining elements from many of the most powerful and passionate subgenres of hardcore and other types of music, from heavy to emotional hardcore to long Godspeed You! Black Emperor-style passages. A strong anti-capitalist message could be found in their lyrics, and the band released albums through the CrimethInc. Ex-Workers’ Collective. The band took their name from the book «La Société du spectacle» by theorist, Guy Debord.

The band consisted of Endre Njøs (guitar), Torbjørn Hafnor (guitar/vocals), Jørgen Larsen (guitar/percussion), Andreas Bakkemo (vocals), Martin Bowitz (bass/vocals), Kjetil Jensen (drums). They existed from 2000 to 2006. During their existance they toured Europe three times and the United States once. Connected to strong DIY-ideals they put out the records themselves on their own label Smart Patrol Records.

In April 2007, Phil Elverum (of Mt Eerie) re-released The Spectacle's album "Rope or Guillotine" on vinyl with hand silk-screened covers. More information about the release is available at http://www.pwelverumandsun.com/store/
