Threepoint Turn

Bio

Threepoint Turn consists of, yes, you guessed, it three Burnside High School students.

"We officially began when Andy and Ben, after playing with several others in 2002, found bass player Mark in 2003, when we were just 14.

"We soon got sick of the school’s classical music regime, so decided to evolve from a ‘school band’ to a ‘garage band’ (applause). This was a great move as it meant we were free of irate flute teachers breathing down our necks and complaining about the plaster falling from the classroom ceilings. Practices usually occur twice a week in our top-secret countryside location, with no fear of noise complaints. This very location gave us the inspiration for one of our personal favourites – 'The Black and White Cow'.

"After two years of jamming together we decided to record a few of our favourite original songs. 'Sleep Down' was one of these, named so because we thought there were already too many songs titled 'Wake Up', and decided to go with the opposite. Mark had taken piano lessons for some time a couple of years ago, and we soon discovered we could use the keyboard for some wicked effects. Mark came to us with the melody you can hear in the Sleep Down chorus, and we took it from there.

"We have always had trouble describing our style, but would probably call it straight up rOcK, with just about anything else thrown into the mix, blended together, and fan baked at about 160°C for 20 minutes in a flat tray. You guys can decide who we sound like."

Threepoint Turn are powered by:

Squier/Fender, Yamaha, Zoom Effects, Laney and Behringer Amplifiers, Lazer Drums, Zildjian Cymbals, plus the trusty fourth member of the band, the Jansen Club Series Amp, and of course scones with raspberry jam before every practice.

Band Members:
Ben 'spank me with a paddle' Spink (guitar, vocals)
Mark 'I love Germany but my last name is' Holland (bass, keyboard, vocals)
Andy 'the adominable snowman' Frost (drums, vocals)
