Way back in the day Justin and Sean Braam conjured up a few tasty spells combining their styles and influences and from that beautiful spark of Chunk meets punk they refined the tastiness that is the NCBD style the world knows and cherishes today.
Childhood friends, brothers and heroes have come together and formed the punk rock game changer, No Chocolate before Dinner.
Once Sean Braam and Brogan had wined and party pumped their way through 3 “Pop Chunk” tracks they approached the Chocolate Drummer/Human metronome/Leisure man Rob Storm.
With Rob taking the hot drummer slot, they set off to begin Pre-Production! After many nights and months spent in Rob’s Incredible Inter-Dimension Studio pre-producing the instrumentals and growing closer as Band mates/Lovers. Justin was let out of his barred enclosure and bestowed his dangerous vocal trickery all over the cheeky faces and behinds of the tracks with Brogans caring guidance at NCBD’s writing chamber and within seconds, the songs were born.
in December 2012 the brethren of NCBD spent a fairy-tale 2 and half weeks at the dreamlike Alight Studios recording and engineering their own Debut EP. Things got very f*cking chunky as the songs came to life in their final arrangements.
No Chocolate Before Dinner is a band that has spent its short but glorious lifetime focused on loving fun (hard) and the never-ending pursuit of being the monarchs of Chunk, the music has grown and become a rollercoaster of energy with a splash and delish-lash of exhilaration.
NCBD is without a doubt a band that is doing everything differently and intends to carry on changing the way music is played and delivered to the Galaxy.
Getting to know the Band:
Justin’s favourite food is Pizza and Sean Braam loves Prawns. Rob used to hang out with the wrong crowd of Pizza’s. Do not ask Brogan about that. Ever. Please don’t under estimate the power of Garlic Rolls.
If the band were a colour it would be: “Rouge-chúnk”
NCBD started the charity “Teens suffering with No-Chunk in East Germany” for the children who are not fortunate enough to have chunk on their faces and around their bodies. One day the band hope to be delivering Chunk to teenage girls and a few boys all over the world.
The same artist who designed Avril Lavigne’s Merchandise designed No Chocolate before Dinner’s beautiful logo. Benjamin Lande, the illustration and design God. The band love him and so do you.
