Q. Why "mym8sb&"?

A. "my m8s b&" = "my mate's band"

Q. Why "my mate's band"?

A. We're mate's with EVERYONE who likes our songs & helps us promote unity, human rights, animal rights & a sustainable future. Our mates like the name.


Do YOU like the name? Good! We hoped you would.

Q. Who are "mym8sb&"?

A. "my m8s b&" = "my mate's band"

Q. Who are "my mate's band"?

A. "my mate's band" are an ad hoc group of Joe Champion's friends and acquaintances who get together to perform original songs with either 7 or 5 beats to the bar

Q. Why songs with either 7 or 5 beats to the bar?

A. Because songs with either 7 or 5 beats to the bar are in time signatures which are often called abnormal, complex, odd & weird.

Q. Why do it, though?

Q. Because it's a challenge & no-one else was up for it*, so why not?

* notable & popular exceptions

Three rare examples of popular music written in prime time signatures are Mars (Bringer of War), a classical piece written by Gustav Holst before 1916, Take Five, a jazz piece composed by Paul Desmond and performed by The Dave Brubeck Quartet on their 1959 album Time Out and Lalo Schifrin's theme music for the long-running TV series Mission: Impossible.

Living in the Past by Jethro Tull, Money by Pink Floyd & Peter Gabriel's Solsbury Hill are three rare examples of songs written in prime time signatures which have been played on the radio and received chart success.


Do YOU want to hear some original songs with unique rhythms that are often called abnormal, complex, odd & weird?
Good!
We hoped you would.
