Career

Kubichek! are currently signed to 30:30 Recordings but have previously released two singles - "Taxi" and their debut "Nightjoy" on Fantastic Plastic Records, a split single "Opening Shot" on Kitchenware Records as well as having their music featured on several compilation CDs.

They have released four singles from their debut album "Not Enough Night", Outwards, Nightjoy, Stutter (a vinyl release limited to 500 copies) and Method Acting..

On 23 October 2007, Kubichek! announced on their Myspace that Alan McDonald had left the band. McDonald will continue to make music and upload it on his Myspace page, Here Yee, on which he states he is not likely to ever perform live again. With Michael 'Frog' Coburn taking on vocal duties, the band added Graham Thompson to the line-up to take over on bass but he stepped down in early 2008. They are continuing to work on their second album as a three piece, due for release in spring 2008. Recent gigs have featured Bob from Ever Since The Lake Caught Fire on bass.

On 4 July 2008, Kubichek! announced on their Myspace that the band had decided to split up saying that "After Alan left we did a few shows, but to be honest it just didn't feel as though it was what we wanted.".

The remaining members have since formed a new band called the 'Black Flashes'.
