about

The Year Of Birds discography will set anyone’s head spinning, which is why right thinking folk everywhere should thank US label Third Uncle for putting out Slack Handfuls Of Nothing, a vinyl compilation of all Year Of Birds’ non-vinyl releases so far, three years’ worth of insane productivity.
Because lean and punchy, full throttle lo-fi punk fucking rock always sounds better on vinyl.

The album includes all of Year Of Birds’ singles, compilation tracks, out of print tape releases and some unreleased tracks – 31 tracks in total, all written by Oli Heffernan except a cover of Swell Maps’ classic "Let’s Buy A Bridge" (vinyl only).

The Year Of Birds line-up:
1 x Broken Mic.
2 x Guitars.
1 x Bass
1 x Drums

The Year Of Birds Approach:
Add 4 people.
Write some songs with 2 parts. (The shorter the better, it makes learning them easier)
Rehearse a few times (No more than 2 hours a time)
Record via yr mate with a 4 track.
Put out stuff on various formats.
It's easy.
It's cheap.
All you need is a tape to tape deck, access to a photocopier and basic photoshop skills.
Less.
