“I don’t know if it was the most fun days of my life,” says guitarist Charlie Ryder, reminiscing on his time in Bang! Bang! Eche!, “but it was when I was the most naïve. When we were all the most naïve.”

Formed in Christchurch, Bang! Bang! Eche! played energetic, fierce, dance-punk. From 2007 to 2013 they released three EPs and recorded and mixed one unreleased full length album. They toured New Zealand, Australia, America and Europe extensively and became renowned for their high-octane, physical performances, following in the footsteps of like­minded punksters The Mint Chicks, So So Modern and Die! Die! Die! At the earliest their ages ranged from 16 to 20, and in the space of six years guitarist Charlie Ryder, drummer James Sullivan, bassist T’Nealle Worsley and vocalist Zach Doney would achieve cult status as a “ruckus party band”.
