    1Well, You're Not Invited [2009]


    They play "SEXY GARAGE DANCE", according to their own description. Freesonica put it this way: "See it as an exhilarating combination of the raw energy of 60s Garage Rock, the recalcitrant attitude of the Dutch Indie scene and Electro dance grooves". So why is it Sexy? ",well we are sexy, aren't we??"

    Both the sound of Daily Bread and the live shows can justifiably be called innovative and unique. All three band members take their place at the front of the stage, so that not a single ounce of the band's energy is lost on the audience. They play around with homemade effects pedals, sing through telephones, the drums are hit with sticks and maracas and from start to finish the three young dynamos exhibit immense joy in their playing.

    Barely 2 years ago, Stefan Stoer (drums) and Chris Mulder (bass) decided to pursue a radically new course after the demise of the Britpop band they had been playing in. They were aware that Kimberly (who is from the same village and frequents the same watering-hole) wrote a lot of poetry, and they concluded that it would be interesting to make music together. Once they started writing it became clear that the combination of bass and drums was too minimal, and the sound of the Philicorda turned out to be the perfect solution. Daily Bread was born!

    In 2008 the band was selected to take part in the "Kleine Prijs van Friesland" competition, which they duly won last May. From that moment on, things started to move very quickly. They recorded a new demo, and were invited to join both the Popronde and the Freesonica project. As crowning glory, they were chosen for the Grote Prijs van Nederland (Grand Prix of the Netherlands). This turned out to be a brief involvement, as the band decided not to take part in the competition. A report posted on the music site www.musicfrom.nl explains why:

    'Frisians exit the Grand Prix'
    'The Friesian band Daily Bread, the winners of the 'Kleine Prijs van Fryslân' have announced that they dropping out of the competition. The reasons are explained on their MySpace: "We weren't allowed to use our usual live set-up (drums at the front of the stage, old, nostalgic amplifiers and us huddled up close together!) at the showcase in the Wilhelmina Pakhuis in Amsterdam. Without our own amps, our own sixties drum kit, without Stefan, out front for once, with a big grin on his face... That's just
    got Daily Bread. That's why.'

    BLOG.nl: " you WILL dance dam nit, to these 12 lovely rough chunks of energy on the First album of Daily Bread"
    Initially, a number of people criticise this as not being a very wise decision, yet the band members continue to insist that they will only perform if they are allowed to do it in their own unique way. It becomes quickly apparent that this is exactly the right strategy. Record labels are queuing up to sign them, and eventually the band signs with the celebrated label Excelsior Recordings in early January 2009.
    The band plays a week later at the prestigious Noorderslag and Eurosonic festival and they raise the proverbial roof. The reviews are full of praise and the band is launched as an act with great promise for the future. Big festivals are showing serious interest, while shows follow at events such as Motel Mozaique, Oerol and Metropolis as well as on the highly popular TV programme "De Wereld Draait Door". By now, people in other countries have also fallen under their spell. The band plays during June 2009 at both the GoNorth festival and Rockness in Scotland, PLAY festival in Belgium and the biggest indyrock magazine of China promotes the band through an item of 2 full pages in their July-issue. In that same month even the Paleo festival in Nyon Switzerland has reserved an evening billing for the band where the band proves they have grown strong and know how to deal with big stages.
    In August 2009 the band finishes the last details of their debut album "Well, you're not invited" which is released in the Amsterdam Paradiso in October 2009. The critics for the young trio are great, encouraging the band to continue as it seems they are on the right track. The well known music magazine OOR says: "Concert audiences already knew that Daily Bread is the best thing what the Netherlands have to offer when it comes to live bands, hopefully the rest of the country will know it soon too!!!!"

    In January 2010 the band is again selected for showcases at the Eurosonic AND the Noorderslag festival and a record deal in Germany, Austria and Switzerland has been set up through the Haldern Pop label. After that weekend 6 agents through Europe did commit to the band after seeing the showcases. On May 12 2010 the band has been voted as "best band" by the listeners of Radio 3 in Spain. Therefore the band has been invited to showcase at the big Music2Day festival in Madrid on June 20. On July 3 even better news: from September 2010 the band will be booked through one of the biggest agencies in the world called THE AGENCY GROUP. www.theagencygroup.com The Los Angeles department will take care of the bookings in North America. Shortly after that the band is added to the line up of the prestigious Lowlands festival.
