King Biscuit Time

It’s no secret that I’m an obsessive Stephen Mason fan. Obsessive. Mason’s first project, the now defunct Beta Band combined acoustic guitars, electric guitars, unwieldy synth lines, electronic sounds, a strange hybrid of drum machines and acoustic percussion, and surreal, often unintelligible, lyrics into beautiful rock music madness.

One of my favourite live experiences to this day is seeing them perform “Inner Meet Me” at the Phoenix – where I was convinced (partly due to intoxication) that the (literally) ground shaking bass line would cause my ribcage to implode.

The Beta Band, sadly, very sadly, dissolved. Most of the guys reformed to become The Aliens (awesome, but not Beta Band awesome). Mason reverted to his solo project, King Biscuit Time. An EP and LP later, Mason promises more new material in 2009. As a teaser, you can (and should) buy his newest track, “I Let Her In” via TenTracks – where you grab it on a 10-track compilation disc for 1 pound (that’s about a buck seventy five Canadian). The video above, “I Walk the Earth,” is off the No Style EP.
