Title: Billy Boyd & Beecake
Post by: Culpie on December 09, 2006, 12:56:16 am

Hi, All ~

1st question: Have any of you heard any of the music by Beecake? This is the band that Billy Boyd plays in. They have a very distinctive sound. If so, what do you think? If not, you should be able to hear something here:

http://myf.info/Beecake/index.html

2nd question: is DVD only available in the UK? I don't have access to this website without joining...and ideas of how I can order one of these?

Thanks, everyone! ;)

hi :)

yes billy has a band, the first name was angel's share, after dominic went to spain with evangeline and saw a cake 'bee', so he imagined 'beecake' and told about this name to billy, so now they are 'beecake'.

in their blog space there are three songs : friends and lovers, kick the door, rip it up, written by billy.

link of site of billy, there is a x, click on for the site of beecake:

http://www.billyboyd.net/update/Update.asp?UpdateID=45


they are working for their cd, but it is not availaible now, they do concert in glasgow, but you looking for the cd in your music shop, maybe it is arrived, for all information about them you can see the site that I have posted with the link.

Thanks so much, Leti! I tried to find it on Amazon and a few other places with no success. Now I understand. ;D I will just have to be patient. I do really like their sound and am a bit too far away to get attend any concerts. :'(

The name is kinda cute. Did you see those limited edition t-shirts they were selling. The little bee and the cupcake was too cute! ;D

I would love to go and see these guys at one of their concerts...but over the sea is a bit of a trip for me. :P Maybe some day! Or maybe I will win the lottery...hee hee. Or MAYBE they will come to the USA...oooo...now that would be cool. I think a lot of folks over here would enjoy their unique sound...most of my friends do.

Post by: Misz_Mii on January 02, 2007, 12:42:07 pm

Oh no no no no !!

They can't come to Holland!! Because if they come:

I won't be able to go, because I've got nobody to go with me!! No No No No!! It would be a great big disaster if I knew they would be here in Holland, tickets available, But I can't go!!

(Happened with Fall Out Boy and Panic! At The Disco... and I've been down for... wel at least a few hours!!)

So No no no no no they can't come!!!

Title: Re:Billy Boyd & Beecake

Billy has a great voice. He really can sing. And Beecake seems like a fun name. :D

Title: Re:Billy Boyd & Beecake
Post by: Misz_Mii on January 11, 2007, 06:25:51 am

Yeah! Why is their name Beecake? :P

Title: Re:Billy Boyd & Beecake
Post by: Culpie on January 12, 2007, 10:31:23 pm

Ya know, I am not really sure ???

but it seems to mean literally what it says, Bee cake. Did any of you see the limited editional t-shirts they were selling on their MySpace account? They were a really cute picture of a bee and a cupcake. :D Isn't that cute?

I think there group used to be called Angel something or other. So maybe someone else know why they changed names and if there was a deeper reason behind the switch. At least, I hope so!

Title: Re:Billy Boyd & Beecake
Post by: samis on January 13, 2007, 08:54:56 am

They changed the name probably because they realised there was already another band by that name. Beecake should be original enough!

The name actually came from Dom, according to this (from some Billy interview):

"'The name came from Dom, who played my Hobbit pal Merry. He was on holiday in Spain and he was sending photos on the internet of where he was and what he was up to. One he sent me was in a bakery and there was this big cake covered in bees. He said that people were going in and buying a slice of cake and just scraping the bees off. The bees were alive and going mad. So he sent me a picture and he called it 'Beecake.' I immediately thought it was a cool name for the band. The only problem is that people get confused and call us Beefcake." ;D

Haha yes I've actually heard people call them Beefcake on Myspace before, that's what confusion is all about though. :P ::)

Thanks so much for the info, Samis! I am glad to finally know what the origin of the name was. ;D

Title: Re:Billy Boyd & Beecake
Post by: samis on January 14, 2007, 05:18:46 am

Awww, so cute that the guys are still such good friends. According to the Scottish Sun, there's a chance Lijah might turn up for the gig (if he's not too busy / filming obviously):

Come On Down For Hobbit Of Hot Rock!

Movie hobbit Billy Boyd has invited Hollywood pals Jude Law, Orlando Bloom and Elijah Wood to Scotland to watch his band's first gig. The LOTR star is the latest actor to have a stab at becoming a rocker. His band Beecake make their debut at Glasgow's Barfly on Jan 26. And Billy, who played Pippin in the trilogy, is making sure the audience is star studded.

The dad of one regularly has hunky Law, Bloom and Wood up for boozy pub crawls in Glasgow. He said, "I've asked Jude, Orlando and Elijah up again. They've all heard the music already and they like it. They've got Beecake t-shirts already. I've been so busy on the film Glenn in Belgium that I've hardly had time to tell people that we're doing our first gig. I'll be sending out an invite to all my pals but the guestlist is filling up fast."

Post by: Culpie on January 14, 2007, 11:35:58 pm

That is so neat! I would love to be able to attend...and not because of all the stars who I invited. I really like there music...and there is nothing like hearing music live.

Hee hee....you are sooo right, Veronica! Dream Big! ;D

Have you ever heard that song? It is called Dream Big by Ryan Shupe and the Rubberband. Ok...stop laughing at that name....I know I chuckled away about it too. The words are great...and I like the sound. You can hear part of it hear http://downloads.walmart.com/swap/
and the chorus here http://www.gohastings.com/Catalog/Item/Item.asp?prodid=189829993

You are probably laughing at my lack of technical skills...but that is the only way I can find the song all together. ;) See...that is what happens when you get a little older...hee hee!

For those of you interested, they just announced over at Creation that Billy's band 'Beecake' will be playing at this years ORC!

Also, Billy is an official guest along with David Wenham and Andy Serkis. No Elijah, but not a bad line-up!

Quick question, folks. Can you order their CD's online anywhere? I live in the States...and haven't had too much luck. I know they have a Myspace Account...but as I don't have an account I couldn't research too far in it. Am I missing something?

It must be admitted that I am not too technology advanced...so any help would be appreciated. ;)

Thanks! ;D

Post by: Culpie on March 20, 2007, 12:20:52 am

Sigh...I missed their concert in California. :'( I would have loved to have heard them live...but $$$$ is just not there. Did anyone here go?

So has anyone heard if there are any plans to make their CD available in the States anytime soon?

Title: Re:Billy Boyd & Beecake
Post by: sorceress1986 on March 20, 2007, 12:58:42 am

I know how you feel about the $$$$. I was so mad when I found out they were playing in CA and I can't afford to go. My om was also trying to get tickets to see Stevie Nicks in Las Vegas, but that didn't work out either.

Title: Re:Billy Boyd & Beecake
Post by: Culpie on March 20, 2007, 11:35:34 pm

It was such a shame because I am only a few states over...but far enough that it would be a bit of an undertaking. Sigh. Maybe they will be able to get enough fan interest in the states that they will come for another concert or so. ;D

Stevie Nicks in Las Vegas? How fun that would be! Guess we all aren't lucky enough at the moment. ;)
