When it comes to backstories and inspirations behind band names, it doesn’t get much better than The St. Pierre Snake Invasion.
Inspired by historical events of 1902 in St Pierre, Martinique, it’s said that the small island suffered at the hands of an erupting volcano that sent a fleet of 6ft. long snakes scarpering to the mulatto quarter of St Pierre to avoid the molten lava. These big bastards killed over 50 people before an army of street cats fought them off. To make a brutal story even more raw, a tsunami soon followed, killing everything in its wake (save for two incredibly lucky survivors).
Right barrel of laughs then, eh? Oh aye. Sounding just as brutal as the events that inspired their name, the Bristolian quintet have been caving in skulls for some time now. The tail end of May will see them hook up with our favourite vinyl monthly Too Pure Singles Club to release an exclusive 7″. In even sweeter news, Birthday Cake For Breakfast is super chuffed to present below the flip side to the single’s A-Side ‘Dick E Mozart’!
