Our very first official release will be Dec 2014 and the work has already begun. We have just uploaded a sample of what direction we are aiming for...and just know that 1min30sec was about 4 hours worth of work. I am understanding why bands hate the studio vibe now...plus beer makes you forget how to play your OWN tunes in a big way too. Enjoy and please give us your thoughts on the sample track.
Odd title for a blog yes I know...
When naming this band little did we realize just how apt it would be. The members literally get it on like bunnies...guitarist Filthy Fil and his lady became proud parents 24/10 CONGRATS GUYS! And bassist Jeremy Awesome is nearing being a married man AND new dad...see what I mean!? Building the metal militia numbers rather nicely. Rabbit will be laying low for a while obviously but has so much up its sleeve nearly ready to go in the final phases of near release. In the meantime keep it real, spread the viurs and keep it Rabbid...\m/
Greetings fair sirs and maidens...
So I am Don founding member of Rabbid Rabbit and ex-Taim Sods bassist. Till now our little project went from a way to kill time between myself and current bassist Jeremy Awesome. To a fully grown monster that gained so much steam and momentum...that it was put on hold. Finance issues, kids on the way, Doctorates to be studied for and new marriages frowning upon too much time spent creating music.
That said we are very much around and plotting where to next. Seeing as we managed to combine metal with virtually every single other genre out there to good effect. The question now is...what else hasnt been done that wont come across as poser, fake or forced.
Well the answer is...shit we dont know we are still pondering it. In the meanwhile more singles will be coming your way and please check out my pet project I am assisting in getting off the ground LUNA[SIK].
So till the next time make love like bunnies, eat your carrots...or play with it to if that is your thing.
Need I say more? Well hell yes of course I do right! We have videos waiting to be made in the wings, a band practise of note coming up AND to top it all off we have a sister band called Luna(sik) and man they are SICK! Best you like and check them out and stuff...or we throw voodoo muti on your totti to shrink your junk...I know ppl bro dont make me do it. If your a chick disregard the potion cant do shit to you or shrivel anything.
Right so crank it loud and stay awesome
Bunny ciao for now
Regards Don and RR Crew.
Bunny greetings one and all…
Wow when we got started with Rabbid Rabbit we kind of picked up on it may work product wise. What we didn’t take into account was the fantastic feedback and love and support everyone has shown. So let me (Don) start by explaining the name change thing that happened recently.
Back in 1999 my cousin and some friends formed Taim Sods which enjoyed moderate success in Cape Town South Africa. Alas the wheels fell of due to the usual suspects, drugs, alcohol and woman in 2001. Myself the vocalist and eventually the guitarist moved up to Gaunteng in 2004 and forgot the band thing completely. Only last year at a long overdue meet and greet did the vocalist and myself voice our interest in getting going again.Members were recruited and instruments rearing to go…we didn’t take personality compatibility into account though. So slowly but surely personalities clashed, people walked away and I was left making big promises about our “big nasty brutal” non-existing bands skills and talents.
The left over members and myself were keen to go but for various reasons nothing really happened. In that period of time while waiting I came up with the concept of Rabbid Rabbit. Was meant to be more a punk like entity but when I recruited bassist Jeremy Awesome to the mix. He added an entirely unique take on the music we were creating and before we knew it…we had genreless music! Being a metalhead myself the emotions I felt when hearing what we were doing and tapping into the most odd styles really excited me…essentially the rule book was thrown out the window and creativity encouraged on all levels. Not too many bands I know that are willing to go that route…
So before you could say monkeys knob, we realized “Hey! We are onto something…” we already had a near entire live band assimilated. The thing is now with our experienced colleges is for them to understand…its ok to be an oddball and to raise you’re a hand and have a say. No generic formula here in camp RR, so its been a great learning curve as well as a great way to release the creativity without restrictions.
Taim Sods is on hold indefinitely, I think it’s a great concept band. I just don’t think its time is now…or if it never happens that is ok too.
I found my love and passion and the masses seem to concur…its not sh*t we wont stone you guys.
Live large, be good to your fellow earth inhabitants and be yourself no matter how weird you think you are.
Peace, love and respect…bunny ciao for now.
So technically we are not operating under the Taim Sods banner anymore for a while. We are now under the Rabbid Rabbit alias till our live band issues get sorted out. The latest tracks we have put up for you are DOWNLOADABLE FOR FREE/GRATIS...please help yourself. They are rough cuts of the instrumental tracks that still need the vocal trax laid down.
Please send hate/love mail or just general feedback if your up to it.
Apologies for the lack of communication to all our friends...alas we all have day jobs and families so its not always possible. But thank you all for the love and support and contact you have made.
Well the another dooms day has come and gone (like all of them have done so far), this is really good news for us artists!
It literally means we have more time to annoy and thrust our packages (of music) in people’s faces…hallelujah hell yeah amen to that.
I cannot stress enough how amped I am to have more time on our beloved mother earth and that I can spend it with my family and friends…(read you guys!). I was so not done causing a scene and conquering the world in my own way. Thank you all for the major show of love this past year, may you all have some very well paying festive gigs, time off, good times and memories of the seasons end with friends and family. Live large, make noise and most of all have a good time and forget the stress.
Stay awesome and keep cranking the good stuff.
Greetings world… As I type this lonely lost in cyber space blog, it is 09h49 on a Friday morning in Sandton Gauteng South Africa. Despite all the negative publicity our country gets in the tabloids nothing grinds me more than the following. Call centers phoning about cell phone contracts-even though you have one and we are in one of the greatest recessions since the first fall of Wall Street.-please leave me alone and note you phoned me on my already contracted cell phone you dumb sh*t. Collections for poor communities who have “nothing”-but refuse to work, won’t stop f***ing and have 7 kids in a one bedroom house, all of whom have better clothes than I do and smoke!!! Please rather send me money, you w*nkers!! Having a president lay claim to not “know or be informed” of his populations ills and struggles…so what…….if Botswana invaded and kicked his door in that would be normal too as nobody advised him our neighbors invaded us 3 months ago??? Just an example internationals…and if you have never heard of those names before Google it, our countries politics suck but our nations are GREAT!! Finally the worst of the bunch, the music industries unflappable refusal to adjust and conform to the changing business dynamic it now finds itself in. CD’s don’t sell f***ers and being signed these days means voluntary financial suicide for most bands. And in my country if it’s not African themed it’s not even considered, regardless that only the ENTIRE world knows and buys ENGLISH f***ing music you thick f***s!! Yes I am over caffeinated and yes brain dead too…but not as much as people who have the power to make decisions. I am sure I could fix the world’s problems in a heartbeat, the environment too…*please forward job offers to my inbox*!!! Unlike all our friends around the world that only show good will and consideration, our so called leaders trample our dreams and wish to just be left alone to our own devices. Keep us and our families safe and ensure we can eat and have clean water to drink. All the things promised during the electoral process-only never to materialize once power is gained. Mandela, Obama, Putin, *insert pompus a**-hole name here of some other weiner* you have not just failed us but lied to us all in the name of profit. What has this got to do with music? Simple-music is an international language and should be used for change as it speaks to the young and old alike…use it don’t use it. Ok that was the last burst of brain fart power I had left. Have a rocking/techno/ska weekend peeps Regards Don Raven.
Greetings world.... Its Friday, the weather now sucks while all week it had been Miami envious. So what to do other than drink oneself to a standstill?? Easy!! Remember we are after all rock stars....with kids....enough said right!? When I was young admiring the Tom Arayas and James Hetfields of the world..not once did I take into account that these legends too had kids and a naggy but I am sure supportive wife. Kids are fundamental in keeping knobs like us grounded and sane. Yes we can rock...but we can change a nappy too and tolerate snot and other bodily discharges with much fearlessness and stuff...we are METAL...or some bullshit like that. My point...have fun, enjoy life no matter what it throws your way and drink beer to wash it down. You rock...we will one day rock the socks off you...but in the meantime we need to put in some work and be parents just like the rest of you. Have a great weekend and stay fucking awesome! Regards Don Ravensview and his merry Sods.!!
November month our crew gears up for the total onslaught that shall be our camapaign to shock and amaze the world with our vision and vuglar display of power *copyright infringement acknowledged!!* This band will be ready showcase its instability in 2013-you know you cant wait right!! Epic excellent...stay awesome while we prep!
