Shanghai Pilots have one of the most interesting bios I’ve read in a while:
Band members Knut and Lee met at the central Wellington police station after being arrested for brawling outside The Welsh Dragon. According to Lee, Knut had jumped on stage during an Esqweena Drips gig and repeatedly attempted to crowd surf, eventually causing significant injury to several patrons…
“It was funny at first” recalls Lee, “but when he grabbed the bass, I just had to sort him out”.
Bevo was recruited by Knut after the pair met goat hunting, and Green is a complete mystery…a drummer for hire via the internet…we don’t know a hell of a lot about him other than he’s based in Oxford, England.
