What's on Next...
New rock trio featuring ex-members of Sextodecimon, SC4T and Bersicker.
Sebastian Melmoth stumbled from out of the desert sometime in 2010. They were tired, hungry and in need of a good drink. It seems that the barren wasteland from which they emerged, provided this group of vagabonds with copious unfathomable treasures. Jan-Carl Raspe, evidently the wisest stooge, was seen sporting a bass guitar as he trudged wearily into the nearest saloon. The regulars have since been known to recount stories of Raspe’s prodigious skills behind the computing machine – drum loops and soft synths galore – a myriad of sounds beyond the reaches of the imagination. Ulrike Meinhof, fresh from her resurrection, amazed the locals with her custom-made threads, fabulous haircut and beating rhythms so infectious, they set the stray dogs into a rabid frenzy… not to mention the male population of the town. Andreas Baader, arguably the most handsome of the three, immediately made for the brothel. Within minutes, soothing guitar melodies began emanating from the open French windows on the second floor. In accompaniment, he sung poetry so profound, it melted the hearts of all the loose girls in the place. After a sleepless night of demonic revelry, this band of misfits once again reunited under the misguided pretence of making music together. It may not be the most fervent career choice and it seldom pays, but they say it is good for the soul.
GTI often opens with a relaxed bit of acoustic music from a solo artist. Well, that’s half right this time, as one man noise PATROL Halber Mensch supplies “loop-pedal screamo punk with strings”. If you like the sound of violin, bass and drums fed relentlessly into a black goth cement mixer whilst a tortured vocal belches up the sound of hell being hOovered, you’ll be in for a treat...and if you don’t, you’re no friend of ours.
