BALD EAGLE is a band from Columbia, Mo, they started in 2003. They played their last show in July of 2009. Sometime in the summer of 2012 they decided to start playing together again. Ex- members of Amputee Set, Subscribe, The One Inch Punch, Souls, Carry On Killaway, Quatermast Wind, The Foundry Field Recordings etc. etc. Currently members play in Coward and New Tongues. BALD EAGLE are a strange and mysterious brew who's brand of rock madness is practically unmatched by any bands hailing from the big city. They play fast, guitar driven, musical equivalents of muscle spasms or brain aneurysms, one might equate to the groundbreaking sounds of Swing Kids or Nation of Ulysses. Some might call this, just not givin' a f*ck. Still others might see this as a dizzying assault of technicality and full frontal nudity. BALD EAGLE are fans of, and draw influences from, indie-punk stars Drive Like Jehu and Hoover, and 70's psychedelic legends Deep Purple and Yes. Most songs coalesce with mixtures of improvisational jazz and European hardcore (see the Refused / JR Ewing) and whose subject matter include things like cobras, eating pizza, fear of sharks, The Princess Bride, transvestites, and shady, creepy people. What's more, BALD EAGLE seriously like ripping-it live.

Richard the Lionhearted
This band hails from the heartland of America but much of their music has shadings of the west coast or the desert southwest,” writes Kevin Wierzbicki of AntiMusic.com. “They're not exactly cowboys on acid but a generous amount of psychedelia informs their music with an eerie aura, like it's floating in from a distant radio station that you're lucky enough to catch for a few miles as you ramble down some forlorn highway. It doesn't take too much scrutiny to realize there's something special going on here… which results in music that is both full of warmth and intellectually stimulating.
