We'll keep it simple! It's late 2006. We are bored of listening to our mates rambling on about how there are "no real bands around". What they mean by "real" is rock'n'roll played at a high tempo with punk attitude, simple! A few of us within that circle of people decided to form a band. After a few months of jamming/writing, we had a set of songs and a consistent band line up, we named ourselves the HEAVY DRAPES. Our influences are all from the school of Rock’n’Roll, Chuck Berry, Sex Pistols, Turbonegro and a smattering of 1970s Glam Rock! Our plans for 2007 are to secure some tasty support slots and record our debut album which is almost written. What follows are quotes by the people out there who dig the HEAVY DRAPES: -“I believe that I have witnessed something special tonight” – “That was your first gig, fuck sake, awesome?” – “If I was in the other band who played tonight, I would have packed up and went home after the sound check” – “Inspirational, yes, iconic, definitely” – “The best gig since the Sex Pistols at Crystal Palace” – “The only other band who have a dressing room with all that going on are Motley Crue” – “You guys will be huge” – “That song about suicide was wonderful” – “Brothers and Sisters, it’s time to testify” and we digress……… The Heavy Drapes are, De liberate, Vocals, Rikki Stiv, guitar, Billy Drape, drums, Jerry Dangerous, bass giutar.
