BIOGRAPHY


Olympians are a band from Norwich. Tey own one drum set, one bass guitar, two normal guitars, two keyboards, a glockenspiel and a trumpet. Using these, and their four tattered throats, they create music for pop kids to fall over to. Te sound of “a train falling down some stairs” some say, Olympians would hasten to add that the staircase was undoubtedly carved from fine mahogany, and that the buffet car of said train would be comfortable and well stocked with reputable wines and spirits. Tis year they have released their first EP, toured, broken their festival virginity


at Playfest, been booked for Cardiff- based Swn Festival in October, and begun recording their next set of noise-treats with magic fringe beast David Pye. Take that, Sebastian Coe.
