about

A little less than 10 yrs ago, the two founding members of ANTIQUES released a critically acclaimed yet impossible to find E.P. under the name "Sparrowhawk". Soon thereafter, they added two more members and began a near decade-long collaboration that would yield four LP's, countless videos/wordpoems/fiction, several fake interviews, and (allegedly) one dead and/or maimed fan. The shows were as rare as they were chaotic: dysfunctional-smoke-machine-blinking-xmas-light-booze-addled-affairs that quickly derailed but featured, at their very heart, really great pop songs. Then, on 28 June 2011, they emerged with the apparently unpronounceable JWNS, easily their best and rumored to be their final recording. They intended to remake Kid A but ended up with Bee Thousand. Either way it's fantastic and I pray that someone will recognize it now rather than in 50 years. Though it's doubtful.

about

ANTIQUES

ANTIQUES started out as a different band. Steven and Tim started recording Steve’s songs together. Then Tim decided he could write songs too so they decided to change the band name. In 2006, they recorded their first LP Forgotten People Tread Water in Steve’s basement. A few people liked it so they decided to make more LPs: Floodlight in 2007, No Fortune in 2009, and JWNS in 2011. ... more
