BANG BANG ECHE are a Dance punk band from Christchurch, New Zealand.


BANG BANG ECHE formed at a LARP (or Live Action Role Playing) convention in Minsk, Belarus. Centred around a mutual love for dinosaurs and cartoons, the original trio of Sullivan, Ryder, and Burgess began practicing across the road from a homeless shelter in early 2007.

After playing a a 10 date residency at local venue PartyCentral, the band recruited the duo of Worsley and Doney as security. Worsley was chosen due to her notoriety in underground fighting circles and Zach was always close to the band as he was the only person with a driver's license.

Over the next few months BBE began incorporating the two into their live performances, and thus the band grew to a five piece - with T'Nealle taking up bass parts, and Zach becoming "lead sermonizer".

Towards the end of 2007, Worlsey wrote the 5 songs which make up the band's self titled EP.The band has described the EP as "a five-track foray into the 'Land Before Time', but in this case the dinosaurs play synths and sixteenth beats while the T-Rexes bust rhymes."


T'Nealle Worsley - (Bass / Guitar / Synth)
Charlie Ryder - (Guitar / Synth)
James Sullivan - (Drums)
Josh Burgess - (Synth / Guitar / Bass)
Zach Doney - (Vocals)


BBE have had national rotation on the alternative New Zealand radio network, featuring two number one songs - 4 To The Floor (July 2008) and Nikee, (September 2007).
The band won the rdu98.5 Round Up competition in 2007.
