Big Society
BIMM Institute Brighton
  • Somewhere between a Sunday night and Monday morning in 2012, Jack met Matt, and Matt met Jack. They stood on the collapsing stairwell of a building that sits somewhere in the mind between New York’s Brill building and Palahniuk’s Paper Street.

    Neo-Soul records blast out of the main room while the new found duo make plans to hang out all the time, write songs and form a band that sounds nothing like the noise behind them.
    One out of the 3 occur…

    Working through 12 musicians that year, they eventually accept some laptop software as a long-term band member. They name it ‘Steve Jobs’ and ‘he’ plays with them for a further 14 months. Jack & Matt write the songs, play guitar and sing. ‘Jobs’ fills the rhythm section.
    Fast forward two years and things are looking up…

    Drummer Rob completes the line-up and various guitar-playing friends fill the void of ‘Bassist’ for Big Society’s live show, thankfully Steve Jobs is nowhere to be seen. It’s Bends-era Radiohead, Queens of the stone Age, The Cure and Brand New all crashing their tour busses into each other on a Brighton one-way.

    The mutated child crawling from the wreckage sounds a bit like the three and a half piece band that is Big Society.

    Spread the news, but speak quietly.
