Amazing Baby @ MHOW

FADER: What's going on right now with you guys?
Simon Amazing Baby: Recording and playing and recording. We're releasing a single in the UK hopefully in October, album dropping in 2009. Label stuff is on the DL for now.

How long have the two of you been playing together?
Simon: Since January 1st 2008.

How many bands were you in before you knew you had found one that might stick?
Simon: In Brooklyn, only two. In New York City I have been in about 20. I can't wait for one to stick.

Amazing Baby's next NYC show is free. Last night (Sept 15) they opened for A Place to Bury Strangers and Sian Alice Group at Music Hall of Williamsburg. More pictures from that, below...

I was going to write what I thought about the show, but it looks like someone beat me to it.

SUCKED. another band gets hyped up, theyll be forgotten soon...

:(

I want to beat up this whole band! They look like typical brooklyn hipster jerks. How many of these bands must we go through? \
Flakes leading the flakes...it makes me sad.

"oh lord god. what are these guys, hair stylists?"

haha! This is possibly the worst band in the states. None of their songs are good. All hair, no talent.

artanker convoy who opened the night were really good in a arty stoner dub psychedelia kind of way.

Posted by bill p | September 16, 2008 1:54 PM

they were awesome and are fucking sick musicians

Posted by Anonymous | September 16, 2008 2:02 PM

also why would you judge a band by the way they look? lame

Posted by Anonymous | September 16, 2008 2:19 PM

"also why would you judge a band by the way they look? lame"

bc they hang out at union pool where everyone judges everyone else based on how they look.

Posted by Anonymous | September 16, 2008 2:34 PM

apparently you hang out at union pool too if you've seen them there? but i'm sure you look totally original!

seriously? this band SUCKS, i saw them open for bloc party in august and the crowd was pretty much laughing. basically you put every "rock band" clique, throw in a lack of talent and you've got Amazing Baby.

Posted by Anonymous | September 16, 2008 5:46 PM

They were awesome! Don't listen to the envious and the talent free.

Posted by Anonymous | September 16, 2008 7:39 PM

yeah, this much hate, they have to be good

srsly tho, what's with the hate.

hate is bad

love is good

Posted by Todd | September 17, 2008 12:06 AM

Listen to the music people... how could anyone resist? It's brilliant, live and recorded. Listen and listen and you'll see...

true true...but this will pass VERY soon. It's inevitable with these kinds of bands. Theyre not the real deal, and that singers not ready for primetime, he looks like an out of shape damon albarn and he sings with that generic brooklyn bullshit voice. This crap will be forgotten quick.

I caught the show the other night. I ask the question again- Why does this band suck live??? I really like the demos. But its not the same band! Theres some MilliVanilli bullshit happening right here!

Posted by Anonymous | September 17, 2008 12:29 PM

This band totally sucks. I hope they're robbed on tour.

Posted by Anonymous | September 17, 2008 12:32 PM

12:32, only good bands seem to get robbed these days.

Posted by Frank | September 17, 2008 12:38 PM

WHO CARES ABOUT THIS STUPID UNORIGINAL BAND! ENOUGH.

Posted by Anonymous | September 17, 2008 12:39 PM

amazing junkies. rich, lazy, educated, bitches who form fake bands to be photographed with.

Posted by dude who knows | November 1, 2008 7:16 PM

They're truly amazing! Why do the haters in here waste their time writing dumb comments? They're great musicians despite the way they look or dress.

Keep up the good tunes AB!
