Bow Mods are PCS (vocals) and Ne'er-Do-Well (everything else). A skewed alliance of theatrical tart and synth boffin, the duo was rudely birthed amid the clanging of East London's Bow bells...
Employing a relentlessly strict Bauhaus aesthetic* and a potty-mouthed schoolboy humour, their angular, outre pop is tough, utilitarian and soaked in brittle, British wit...
Effortlessly distilling arch diatribe into thrilling three minute nuggets on love, loss, suffering, shagging, death and dancing, BM are defining a darkly comic oeuvre all of their own...
Propelled by NDW’s twisted, left-field musical proclivities and brought to incandescent life by PCS's slick performance chops and velvet filthy vocals, the results are Kraftwerk groping Grace Jones via Neil Tennant and Dave Gahan fighting over broken biscuits on a Charles and Di commemorative plate...
*this demands the group use only monochrome and primary colours in all aspects of their work. Collaborators advocating changes to this strict palette are politely shown to the door.
RUPERT HOWE, Q MAGAZINE re. Eidetic: "London duo's florid electro-cabaret debut …there's a hint of the Dave Gahans about Smith's baritone and penchant for the seamy side of life; The Beats Still Have It evoking the mother of all comedowns"
TOM ROBINSON, BBC 6 MUSIC: “ ‘Country Girls’ from Bow Mods. What a great record!” (Jagged Little Pill : Single Of The Week)
JOHN KENNEDY, XFM X-POSURE: “An intriguing sound and more plays to come.”
RICHARD FOSTER, INCENDIARY MAGAZINE: “Bow Mods! I can’t help loving this band. A pointed wit and a restraint rarely seen on a debut.”
CAMILLE JEAN PIERRE, REMOTEGOAT: "PCS himself is a camp starburst of a man; a showman; a giver and receiver… He plays with such gay erotica bravado that homo-boys and hetro-girls alike will happily form an orderly queue outside to see their hero."
