This Bike Is A Pipe Bomb

Acoustic punk band This Bike Is a Pipe Bomb formed in Pensacola, FL, in the mid-'90s, fusing influences from the 1960s folk protest movement (most notably the unflinching political themes of artists like Phil Ochs and Joan Baez) and the D.I.Y. aesthetic of punk. The core of the group is singer, guitarist, and primary songwriter Rymodee and bassist Terry Johnson. A variety of drummers, including folk-punk stalwart David Dondero and Aaron Elliott, publisher of the noted punk zine Cometbus, have completed the trio both on-stage and in the studio, though Ted Helmick has been the most consistent presence on the drum throne. This Bike Is a Pipe Bomb debuted with a self-titled 7" EP in 1997, followed by the 10" Of Chivalry and Romance in a Dumpster in 1999. A single, "Black Panther Party," and the full-length Dance Party with This Bike Is a Pipe Bomb followed in 2001. Released in 2002, Front Seat Solidarity was followed by a pair of split EPs with the Carrie Nations and the Devil Is Electric, with the band's third album, Three Way Tie for a Fifth, coming out in 2004. Following a brief period of band inactivity, during which Rymodee maintained his concurrent solo acoustic career, This Bike Is a Pipe Bomb released their fourth full-length effort, Convertible, in 2008. In 2006, This Bike Is a Pipe Bomb inadvertently made national news when a campus police officer at Ohio University in Athens, OH, alerted the city bomb disposal unit after seeing a This Bike Is a Pipe Bomb sticker on a bicycle chained to a campus bike rack. The unnamed graduate student whose bicycle was blown up in a controlled explosion was later awarded damages and an official apology. ~ Stewart Mason, Rovi

It was an airport in Florida about a week ago. A guy was there to see off a friend, and when he came back to his bike, he got taken into custody even though the bomb squad had already detemined that the bike was, infact, not a pipe bomb. Made front page on Fark.com.

He sounds like Tom Gable a little bit for sure, that fun.
Yes, that story is true. Happened in Athens, Ohio at the Ohio University.
i heard this story about a guy who had a 'this bike is a pipe bomb' sticker on his bike that was locked up in front of some building and a lady called the police and they shut down the street. the bomb squad came and took apart his bike. i don't know if it's true or not but that's how i heard of these guys.
i dont think balzac relates with this band at all.
So good. Part of the same Florida "folk punk" milieu as Against Me!
