Pit Stories: The Room Clearing Indoor Motorcycle Burnout

All right moshers, its time to return to the pit once more for heavy metal tales of mayhem, misery, and all out mania!

For this week's Pit Story we got in touch with the Miami noisemakers Cave Of Swimmers, who shared a tale of a rather unexpected entrance to the pit.

If anyone has a video clip of the event in question please let us know so we can get it added!

The Florida-base band recalls this crazy tale of a vehicle circling where it doesn't belong from the International Noise Conference:

For the craziest thing we've seen in the pit, we didn't have to go far from our home base: Miami. We were asked to play the International Noise Conference (INC) at Churchill's Pub, and were excited to get to play to a different crowd and to hear some good ass weird music.

It was hot and humid, but more importantly, loud as hell. There was lots of sweat, a few naked people rolling around damp rugs, and unforgiving subwoofer noise blasting all around. We played on the floor, and it was a blast, but nothing could top what happened after our set. Nicky, a familiar face at the venue and all out crazy-dude, was determined to one-up everyone. We had pushed our instruments against the wall to make room for the next act when, out of nowhere, Nicky stormed inside Churchill's and rode right up to the pit, ON HIS MOTORCYCLE.

Everybody stood still, mouths open, waiting to see what he was gonna happen. He proceeded to turn on his bike back on and perform a full on tire burnout in the middle of the floor. Bear in mind, there are no windows or only a few far off doors. The fumes filled the room. Some people ran away, others couldn't get enough and inched closer, dangerously close. Soon he was gone behind the cloud carbon monoxide, and as if his leaving sucked out all the noise from the room, it was actually quiet.

Needless to say, the room had to be cleared and aired out before things could get back up again, but for an act to render INC quiet, we were glad we got to see that in person.

Cave Of Swimmers just dropped new 7" release "The Sun" earlier this month and you can hear a song off that release below, along with a music video off previous album "Reflection." Follow the band over at Facebook here.
