This is how Miaow Miaow describe theirselves:
With members who played or are still playing in local bands like Mutiny on the bounty, Actarus, Eyston, Hal flavin, Pandha, Treasure chest at the end of the rainbow, d.a.d.o.e.s?... The whole story started in June 2006, as some of us decided to form a band, actually a side-project or like we call it a 'Sunday project'. We wanted to have a band just for fun, without stress and all the bad sides you can actually find in a regular band.
