Trash or Treasure
Welcome to the newest page on this site. Here you can get a glimpse of the band's past with old video, music, and photos unearthed from the Bove catacombs. Maybe some of this stuff shouldn't see the light of day? Maybe it's a little too self-indulgent? Nonetheless, here's a brief history into the band's humbled beginnings...awful fashion choices...and slow maturation into what they've become today. Enjoy...laugh...and count your Blessings the 80's are over! Is it trash or treasure? you decide.
BOVE - "Goin' Naked" 1993
Way before there was Koncrete Kite, the Bove brothers were in a band called, well...BOVE (I know, I know...such originality...but then again, if Van Halen and Dokken could do it...) Recorded and produced IN TWO DAYS back in 1993, this long forgotten gem contained the core three members of the band - Rich, Joe, Chris - along with future video director Jeff Kennedy on vocals. Although the songs were mixed professionally, most are truly dated and will never see the light of day. The cover featured future band members PJ and Greg enjoying a spirited bath together.
Koncrete Kite - "Stayed in Bed" live 1997
First live radio performance. 101one WJRR. Orlando's premier rock station. What a thrill. Joe on acoustic. Rich on bongos. Chris on electric bass and backing vocals. Two friends were there too. One was called Snooty. He played the shaker. Another track from "Can of Bliss".
Koncrete Kite - No respect for Chris 1995
Oh, Christopher. During the initial phase of the revamped lineup and name change, Chris (also lovingly known as "Smokey Butts") was an intricate part of the band and came up with a ton of ideas that would make the first album. But as the youngest brother in the group during this time, he was often teased and ridiculed because....well, because that's what big brothers do! Here is a brief snippet of Chris coming up with a song while Joe and Rich shoot pool and some damn parakeet chirps in the background. No respect! This idea would eventually become "Hang Your Halo" and sung by Rich on their third CD, "The Joy of Bee Stings".
