This is the story behind the band swingset champion. A young hobbit by the name of Lucas was travelling around middle earth to find the wizard Paul who also knew how to write music. They joined forces to write a few songs and it became evident they needed an elf to help them write. They found Pauls long lost brother John. He also joined in to write songs that would help take over middle earth. Finally they knew they had to go into the lonely mountain and find the one lone dwarf named Matt who could provide beats for their songs. They battled many orcs but made it and are now together winning over middle earth, one at a time.
The fellowship was once called 'Kid Blink' but they changed the name to 'Swingset Champion.' Why you ask? Because it fit better for the musical styles they were playing. After completing a 4 song demo cd and playing on battle feilds with other fellowships such as Venere, Stabilo Boss, Project Wyze, Sound Curfew and Thirsty, they have gained much experience. In the year 2003 Swingset Champion will be releasing their first full length album entitled 'Half Full.' It has 10 songs with all you've come to love of their style, and has full piano and percussion parts. It is a cd to watch out for. Soon middle earth will all know the power of Half Full and the power of the fellowship of Swingset Champion. Hope we can see YOU at some shows!
