- nude beach (philly) didin’t really care so we stopped making music as NUDE BEACH and continue as COUGH COOL
- nude beach (brooklyn) are trying to make a career out of playing pop punk at death by audio on tuesday nights and take their sound kind of seriously.
- vice interviewed nude beach brooklyn and they spent the entire time talking about us, nude beach (philly). they called us a fake band. see HERE
- kind of embarrassing on a few accounts: chubby dudes in tie dye - and the fact that they said “playing music can fall short of its meaning when you’re not communicating with other people and allowing a space for it to live and breathe”
- Nude Beach (philly) has officially reunited and will be releasing a record late summer 2012 with a tour of brooklyn ONLY to support.
So who was first, the band from Philly who called themselves Nude Beach or you?
Ryan: Well, the Philly Nude beach was a fake band. They had literally two Myspace songs and got on Pitchfork and then we started seeing their name everywhere. They even played Don Pedro the night after us one time. My friends were like “What the fuck?!.” It sucked because we thought we had a cool band name and then they came along and ruined it for a little while. They were definitely dicks. They once posted our tour dates online as a joke, and then more kids showed up at our shows on tour! Joke’s on you, “Nude Beach”!! Also, they named their album Slut Club which obviously sucks. They’re a good example of how Pitchfork manipulates the larger music press.
I read somewhere that they broke up.
Jim (bass): Yeah, they’re a good example of how stupid the internet in general can be for music in 2011. I mean, they’ve gotten more press for their break up then most bands get for actually writing and playing music. They got this piece on NPR because I guess they stopped being a band when all these internet freaks spammed their website with nude beach porno. Anyway, I’m just glad no one is asking us why we named our album Slut Club anymore.
