The band's primary songwriter and guitarist Peter "PJ" McFarlane was never born, but was in fact grown in a lab. Nowadays, when he's not syphoning blood out of a stuck pig as part of an ill-defined ritual, the diminutive chap writes songs in a cramped room and does little else.
Matthew Hare, the bassist, was once among the most powerful drug lords of the Siberian narcotics cartel. After the collapse of the USSR, he trained a squadron of snow elves to cobble together a biplane with pine wood and magic and embarked westward.
The band's drummer, Anthony Smith, once accidentally resurrected a witch with a mysterious necronomicon and was subsequently cursed. He now plays the drums as a mechanism for periodically scaring away the ghosts, who get frightened by loud noises, so it would seem.
By glomming together a strangely endearing variety of sounds, from mid 2000’s-style garage rock to lo-fi synth-heavy dream pop, Neaptide brings a unique style to the table. Only time will tell what musical fusion the NeapBoyz™ will conjure up next, hoo boy I can hardly wait.
