Bang! Bang! Eche! is a dance punk band from Christchurch, New Zealand.
Bang! Bang! Eche! is the musical brain child of T'Nealle Worsley, aided by a revolving cast of session musicians. The band first started playing shows in early 2007.
Towards the end of 2007, Worlsey wrote and recorded a self titled demo EP.
The debut EP was a success, especially in America, after placing in the Top 5 Most Added Albums on US College Radio. It was boosted by rotation on US radio station KEXP, mostly with single "4 To The Floor". The EP also received medium/heavy rotation on Australian network Triple J, and two number one songs ('4 To The Floor' and 'Nikee') on the alternative New Zealand b.net radio network.
The songs "4 To The Floor" and "Time Mismanagement" were also in the NZ Industry Radioscope chart for 21 weeks in 2008, peaking at #3 and #2 respectively.
In late 2008, the band toured the USA and Europe. While in the US, the band played the CMJ festival in New York City, including a live-to-air in-studio on KEXP. This performance became Podcast of the Day, and was included in KEXP's top 5 performances of CMJ (along with Fujiya & Miyagi, Lykke Li, Vivian Girls and Broken Social Scene). It then became Video of the Week. Prior to this performance, "4 To The Floor" was rated as Song of the Day on the 17th of October, 2008.
The video for "4 To The Floor" was released at the start of 2009.
In early 2009 the band performed at the Rhythm and Vines, Big Day Out, Vodafone Homegrown and South By Southwest festivals.
