Beats For Beginners are Manchesters LCD Sound System or Beck. Kinda retro classic stoner pop like Ziggy meets Krafwerk - with electro and 70's/80's trashy synths. Although live the band are a tight 3 man machine, BFB is essentially one man singer songwriter Mike TV, spotted & signed by Mint Royale via a demo to their Faith & Hope (2004), releasing the debut album DON'T FLY INTO THE SUN with singles: Kill All DJs, TECHNOLOGY and WHEN ROBOTS ATTACK. Mike also collaborates with REBELSKI (Doves) STICKERS ON KEYS (2005) and spins discs with DOVES DJS (2007-2009).
April 2009 see's Beats For Beginners return with a brilliant darker rockier 2nd album HOW I LEARNED TO LOVE MACHINES with singles LASER BEAMS FOR EYES and GREATEST SOUL as singles. Beats For Beginners live are Crosby (bass), Jay Kellet (drums) and Mike TV (voice/guitar/keys). All Beats for beginners songs are available on itunes.
