Biography

Cross your heart: we’ve seen quite a few reunions which weren’t really necessary and tend to jeopardise the myth of a formerly great band rather than rekindle it. In the case of It Bites, however, the situation is entirely different. In their comeback album, The Tall Ships, the British prog rock act surrounding drummer Bob Dalton and keyboardist John Beck, who released three ... Read more in Amazon's It Bites Store

5.0 out of 5 stars Everything You Need To Know.......!!! 27 Mar 2005
Format:Audio CD
I became an It Bites fan after seeing them perform live on "The Old Grey Whistle Test" in the early 80`s.
I learned that they were from a small town called Egremont on the West coast of Cumbria,I live in the Lake District too, & as the list of "Famous Cumbrians" was, (& continues to be) very small!,I was keen to see these local lads do well,& was also blown away by their set on TV that night.I have been a big fan ever since & their lack of success, was & still is, a real mystery to me.
It Bites should have been a massive band,their songwriting talent & excellent individual musicianship is obvious, both on this album & on all the rest of their releases.
As a review in "Sounds" music mag said of their debut album at the time, "It Bites absolutely p*ss all over the opposition"!!
"Calling all the hero`s" was a big hit single & they seemed destined to be around for a long time.
Unfortunately,their subsequent single releases did`nt really chart, & to many people they are reguarded as a classic "One Hit Wonder band"
"Eat me in St Louis" was to be their last studio album.
Why the anthemic, "Still to young to remember" was not a hit I dont know!other stand out tracks are "Underneath your pillow,Sister Sarah, & The haunting "Ice melts into water"
It Bites were real musicians that had more in common with bands like Rush & Yes, at a time when the music buying public wanted less complicated pop artists & we saw the birth of manufactured bands that invariably mimed, with every TV Soap Star releasing a single!
Come to think of it,they should be proud to have risen above those in the charts at the time, by not appearing there,& can at least claim,rather ironicaly, that they were too good, as musicians to be sucessfull!!!!!!!!
Buy this album & you`ll see exactly what I mean.

This is a Great CD.
The moment "Positively Animal" kicks in, you get an instant feel that there is a difference in how It Bites applied themselves to their songwriting. Francis Dunnery (Lead Vocals) is a very talented musician, as are all of this under-rated band. From the anthem-like "Still Too Young To Remember" and the energetic "Sister Sarah" to the haunting "The Ice Melts Into Water", this CD has all the attributes you need to tune in to the band. I saw It Bites live and, as a musician myself, miss the great Bass and Drum interaction. They were a one-off and if you like good musicians, coupled with interesting but melodic tracks, you should check them out. Listen out for the nursery rhyme like guitar solo in "Underneath Your Pillow". Musically almost taking the ****. That sums up It Bites.
"Thankyou and Goodnight" is available and a way to experience them live. Francis Dunnery has now left the band to pursue a solo career. It's a shame because It Bites were special.

4.0 out of 5 stars Almost There.... 9 July 2002
Format:Audio CD
It Bites third, and final, studio album, Eat Me In St Louis was the bands real rock opus.
Including the anthemic nearly hit Still Too Young To Remember, this album is Bites on full rock out mode.
If the their previous album (Once Around the World) was eclectic and progressive, EMISL is far more direct.
Full of hits and the occasional miss (Sister Sarah urgh), EMISL showed that IB could rock with the best of them, and that Francis Dunnery perhaps the finest rock guitarist since Dave Gilmour.
Easier to digest than the more complex OATW, and therefore slightly less rewarding, but still packed with incredible tunes.
