The Butterknives - Hypocrite

The Butterknives - Hypocrite
The band formed over a game of pool between two then acquaintances Jase Ireland (vocals) and Ben Nelson (guitar). With the intention of being a punk band, The two now inseparable Nelson and Ireland, audibly punished their neighbours across the sutherland shire from different members band rooms. Doing so with an oft 5 or 4 stringed guitar, crash heavy drums and out of tune vocals.

As the months went by with the band trying to replicate live demos from their phones recordings, and neighbours knocking on their doors; their musical taste broadened and they began taking a more focused direction. That direction was mono rock and roll. They wrangled The Rizzler (bass) and Brandon Hanslow (drums) and began to practice and write songs consistently.

With Ireland stinging to play a live gig, he brought the chorus of ‘Hypocrite’ to Nelson. Ireland asked of Nelson to frame these lyrics with a classic 60’s sound. With 20 minutes, an acoustic guitar and a tambourine: the song was complete.
