Bits Of The Best Party Ever





Beneath the sweet coating of Bits Of The Best Party Ever lie the woven undertones of fear, death, disappointment and love as presented by Pete Hobbs (composer/multi-instrumentalist) and Jof Owen (lyricist/singer) of The Boy Least Likely To. The duo’s full-length version, which has seen a solid release in the UK via Too Young To Die Records, has yet to be distributed in the US. Hobbs and Owen, schoolmates from Wendover in Buckinghamshire (40 miles outside of London) who established the group just a few years earlier, dodges pretentious seriousness for irony in approaching dark topic. The EP’s opening “Be Gentle With Me” trots with the blithe shield for emotions such as “I’m happy because I’m stupid/Scared of spiders, scared of flying/If I wasn’t so happy I wouldn’t be so scared of dying”, while “Fur Soft As Fur” reaches for the disappointment (“dreams don’t always come true”) of unfulfilled ambition and life quandary. The five-song cd also includes “I See Spiders When I Close My Eyes”, “Warm Panda Cola” and the hop-scotch of “Rock Upon A Porch With You”. Where humor is more polite than sarcasm, Bits Of The Best Party Ever creates the soft fall for emotions too dark to cushion themselves amid their own angst.
