Cymbals eating Guitars? Outrageous!

Paul and I caught these guys last year at the Brixton Windmill after becoming enamoured with last year's album Why There Are Mountains and whilst they still had some issues to iron out (the constant tuning of instruments between songs destroyed any atmosphere their admittedly good set could have generated), their incessant touring (coming over to the UK 3 times last year no less) marks them as an exciting band to watch. Cymbals Eat Guitars, a 4-piece from Staten Island U.S., are about to release an E.P., Wind Phoenix, and this track is featured on it. Eat it, and enjoy the feast!

Cymbals Eat Guitars - Ballad of Big Nothing


  1. This a Elliot Smith cover! Is the rest of the album ES covers?

  2. Whoops - actually its a 7" vinyl release for the single Wind Phoenix - the cover is the B-side! My bad!
