Ten Mouth Electron’s krautrockabilly psycho-pop has prompted parallels with musical forces that don’t usually appear together in the same sentence: Fuzzy spacerock workouts, angular post-punk and soaring psychgaze have earned comparisons to PiL, Hawkwind, Talking Heads (TalkWind?) and more.
The sound is the glorious coming-together of members from several disparate Manchester bands, (Locean, Ill, Salford Media City, Rapid Pig). You might say it’s the closest the city has to a super group.
But all comparisons to the Travelling Wilburys end there.
GetIntoThis described TME’s set at the Liverpool International Music Festival as ‘a froth of urban disobedience,’ and the band’s appearance alongside four exciting British artists on The Quietus magazine’s Minor Characters EP release revealed a broad and playful sonic palette.
Look out for three further raucous releases in early 2015…
Ten Mouth Electron are:
Vox/guitar: Bob Clowrey
Guitar: Phil ‘Santa ‘ Lewis
Bass: Sadie Noble
Drums: Jay Tea
Taking Sophoclean tunnel uncle to their scope,
you who listen name Ten were sweats to/from
Mouth being feedback
and the Electron sermon delivered
and the boat, no-description
which regard rigors for the playing of Donald Crowhurts
(personal one) enacted krautrockabilly
Boredom, bodyspace, you an afro-goth, onanism
But find noise of deception and inauthenticity
really for that other vaguely sinister wind, overbearing you
and yourself would nonsense the music
If void is inside by here tragedy
