Ten Past Seven are Matt on Bass, Ger on Drums and Rory on Guitar. Having witnessed the live monstrosity of local Cork bands such as Weevil (RIP) and Rest , they were inspired to create their own blend of instrumental madness. There followed a few weeks of intense writing, in which instrumentals were loudly and violently excreted from the artistic parts of their brains. After they had a small set together they started playing with bands such as Charlottefield, Mono, Brood, Noxagt, Berkeley, Giddy Motors, Redneck Manifesto and a shit load of other fantastic bands. There's too many to mention.

Originally from Kerry, they started the band in the month of September '02, when they moved to Cork to attend the Music, Management and Sound course in Colaiste Stiofain Naofa. They had been playing with another band called Rift for about 3 years and had enjoyed a little bit of success & did a couple of recordings, including a Dave Fanning Session for 2FM in Studio 8.

In April '03 they decided to record the music that they had so lovingly crafted during the year. So time in the college studio was booked and the instrumentals were put to tape using only 8 tracks. Five tunes were recorded live and mixed by themselves in about 3 hours. This whole episode turned into the debut release "onehundredandfiftydegrees" . They burned each CD and cut & glued each cover by hand. To date they've sold over 400 exclusively at gigs.

Ten Past Seven's debut album "Shut Up Your Face" was released on Out on a Limb records in early January 2006. All proceeds from sales go to the "SAVE THE BOG-WALRUS" campaign. The album can be purchased in all good record stores and most bad too.
