– How turned this stupid name Mountain Bike out? I’m especially curious about the circumstances of the name giving. It was during a crazy night, or was it a hangover in a café, or a lazy afternoon? How did it happen?

– Well you know, we had no ideas, picking a name is always a pain in the ass. This band wasn’t supposed to last, It was just a joke. Running out of proposals, we chose “Mountain Bike” because we saw someone wearing a Mountain Bike T-shirt. How stupid is that?! And you? How did you end up with such an original name? R’n’R 666…

– It was a beautiful May afternoon. I was walking along the boulevard Nagykörút in Budapest when my phone rang. Lavór called me and asked

– Hey, want to do a biweekly rock and roll radio show with me and Pali?

– Why not?

– Ok. Then find its name out!

I went in Csiga Pub on the Rákóczi tér and ordered a beer. I was sitting at the table, the sun was shining, the beer was cold, and my brain played the song Killed by Death by Motörhead, and RNR666 was born. Anyway, what is the story of Mountain Bike? How did it start?

– It all started as a fun side project, we all had other bands as Thee Marvin Gays or  Warm Toy Machine, but we wanted something a bit different with no pressure. We soon had a couple of songs that we recorded with only two mics as equipment. Our friends really liked it so we put out a 7″ and started to play shows. Then we recorded a whole album at a friend studio, and we found the Humpty Dumpty label, that helped us to promote our record. That’s about it. Belgian and French medias seemed to like our debut album and we got to play a lot of shows in several countries as Belgium, France, Netherlands, Germany, Italy, Switzerland, UK, et cetera. We got very lucky and now Mountain Bike is our main band.

And it’s a very funny and playful garage rock band. Sometimes so pop like the Blur. If you have pushed the play now you are listening to their first album, but the second album out now on HUMPTY DUMPTY (Belg) and TEENAGE  MENOPAUSE RECORDS (Fra).
