Built with Indexhibit
Kill Yourself formed in 2001 comprising of Giles Bailey playing guitar and singing, James Islip playing drums and me (Andy Abbott) playing fretless bass. We had a 90's Chicago Am Rep/Touch and Go 'Big Noise' sound with dirty amp-frying bass, pounded drums, scratchy guitar and yelped vocals that were in later days sung through a gas-mask mounted with a conference mic. Live we were theatrical and to some a little disturbing, often playing in nowt but our underwear, wearing animal masks and climbing around on things. We were also fucking loud.
Between 2002 and 2005 Kill Yourself toured the UK a handful of times with J*R, The Wow, This Aint Vegas and The Chinese Stars, and Europe three times with The Wow, This Aint Vegas and Isambard Kingston Brunel. In 2005 Kill Yourself stopped playing live due to logistical difficulties posed by the geographical spread of its members. We have one as yet un-released album that will appear here shortly.
You can now find Andy and James playing in That Fucking Tank whilst Giles sang for a while in Danananaykroyd and fronted Triple School.
