The Libertines’ Gary Powell Starts New Band, The Invasion Of…

July 28, 2010 by  

Libertines and Dirty Pretty Things drummer Gary Powell has announced details of a new band he is working on called The Invasion Of…

The 5 piece are comprised if members Andre Bayuni, Julian Bayuni, Neil Montier and vocalist Robin Coombes of acclaimed British hip hop group Taskforce.

Gary had this to say about the band;

“Starting The Invasion Of… was a real leap of faith not only in myself, but the soon to be members of the band. It would have been easier for me to set it up with other musicians from other bands and follow their lead, but instead I decided to get things going with friends, regardless of their musical background. It has worked out better than I could have ever imagined as the musicians I play and work with have surpassed my wildest expectations.

It has been a big ask to expect the guys to take their own leap of faith in me, but they’ve done it and brought along their own ideas, emotions and overall dynamic determination into the mix which has really helped shape the mad ideas we have into something cohesive Imagine if Chuck Berry in his youth had started making music in today’s day and age, he would be making music like us.”

The band are set to release their debut mini-album ‘373’ through 25 Hour Convenience Records on October 4th.
