Drinking Boys and Girls Choir
Formed in 2013 when two drummers MJ and Meena shared a rehearsal space anddecided to form a band,Meena switched to Bass and guitarist Bondu (who had just finished his military service) answered their ad. They bonded over a shared love of drinking, skating and punk. Inspired by Daegu's 90s-00s hardcore punk/indie-rock scene before it moved to Seoul, a topic band are very passionate about. They won’t move to the capital, preferring to nurture a sustainable local scene. in 2017, MJ suffered a serious motorbike accident, so the band took a hiatus while awaiting her recovery. When she was fit again, they DIY produced their 18 track debut album “Keep Drinking” released on Damnably/Electric Muse in 2019, followed by show stealing appearences at SXSW, TGE, LSC, Pentaport, Busan International Rock Festival, Zandari & MU:CON.
They also toured the UK tour supporting labemates Otoboke Beaver & Say Sue Me on the GOLDENWEEK19 Tour.
Bondu retired from the band following their UK tour, with Myorori Kang taking up the mantle of guitarist for the band.
The band have further European/Asian tours planned in 2020.
