Who: 5 DIY psych/noise
rockers from London.
Debut album: METAPHYSICAL
“Part crystal healing ceremony, part self-help seminar, part
just-taken-thebrown-acid; we’re never quite sure of where
we might end up.”
Order info here.
TUTV: Chum play around with post-prog-synth-rock (Casual Body / Social Animal),
they blow your mind with pounding bangers (Beefcake Doctrine / Nu Age / Gold Star)
and schizo strokes (Music Providence / Humanities) and they finish with a sonically deformed and bizzaro helter-skelter called Annul.
Want references? The unpredictable kookiness of The Residents, the psychedelic
post-punk turbulence of Killing Joke, and yes, the symphonic bombast of Emerson
Lake & Palmer all mixed up and cranked up in a far-out 8-track debut album with
Video/clip for TUTV’s favourite track,
the stunning sledgehammer Beefcake Doctrine.
Buy/stream album here.
Also st(r)eaming on Spotify.
