About

“This is a not a band” is a special a cappella project built up around French drummer and composer Baz (P.O.Box, Modaz, President in a Box...). He wanted to offer vocal medleys of punkrock bands and gathered with three friends, Jeez (President in a Box), Rox (Huit de Coeur, ) and Seb (P.O.Box) to start working on it one year ago. From the composition to the recording and video shooting, everything was done with a total “DIY” ethic: we did everything ourselves, helped by a couple of friends here and there, and released 5 vocal medleys that we put online.

The incredible ammount of comments and views on those medleys this past year made us want to go a step further, and we are now willing to record a full album, with a professional audio quality, but still keeping the "DIY" attitude, still working on it ourselves, and releasing it ourselves. Baz will record and mix the whole album, as he did previously, but for that, we need to buy some professional equipment (list below). 

The album "This is not a band - punkrock a cappella medleys" will come out as a totally independent album, cd version (release planned in January 2016) and will consist of 12 medleys: 5 that will be re-recorded (Nofx, No Use For a Name, Sublime, Blink 182, Rancid) and 7 brand new. To make this come true, we need you! Support us the way you can, with the amount you can, be part of this project and receive this album in your mailbox!

The album will neither be sold nor distributed, and we will never make any money out of it: your contributions are a way to help us give those medleys a proper existence and to get them on a physical release. 

Thanks for your support, we will owe you eternally! Baz, Jeez, Rox, Seb
