The History of Apple Pie – Do It Wrong


Over this weekend I fell in love with this song from a band called The History of Apple Pie, I was introduced to this song by a couple of my best friends who had recently got engaged, introducing me to this song over twitter whilst having a conversation tweeting alternative love songs like True Love Will Find You In The End.

I have been aware of this band for a while, but never really got around to listening to any of their stuff, due to the fact that I don’t really listen to a band until I have seen them live. its like as if waiting to see if the proof is in the proverbial pudding. So I may well be about a million years behind all the typical press hype sort of thing. I went and saw them squeeze onto the top deck at the Thekla and they were great, of course I was bouncing up and down like Tigger on a sugar overdose bouncing and playing air drums. Do It Wrong was probably my favourite song.

From the off it felt like as if there was a tick sheet of alt rock and accidental brit pop bands. with a song like Do It Wrong you can hear notable nods towards the likes of Lush, My Bloody Valentine, Throwing Muses through to Veronica Falls. Do it wrong is a basically an awkward love song that to me brings back some reminiscent of an amped up version of  Lush’s 500 (Shake Baby shake). I can kind of imagine Miki Berenyl co-ing shake baby shake over the top of this along with Kevin Shields on guitar.

I think there is something i kind of relate to in the song lyrics, especially with the chorus hook of don’t be shy which is something I have to tell myself a lot, because of naturally being a quite awkward person.

Do It Wrong is taken from the band’s debut album Out Of View which is available in all record stores and itunes all the usual places!


About bigjeffbristol

I am someone from Bristol in England who is deeply obsessed with live music! its pretty much like an OCD styled obsession that means pretty much every night I am out. I like being down the fron for shows, because then I can feel the music pulsing through me and I am not going to lie to you, I like to dance a lot. Which can make me at times incredibly annoying because of being 6ft4 tall with blonde curly locks so I am the Thoroughly Annoying Blonde!. and I like to preach my geeky musical inertia to people!
