out of stock

a primal, tribal stew of horns & drums & unhinged vocals, tearing up dancefloors whilst channelling punk energy, ethio jazz exoticism & a no-wave spirit - brain meltingly awesome!.

melt yourself down is pete wareham (acoustic ladyland, polar bear) + a distinguished crew of brilliant musicians, including kushal gaya (zun zun egui), shabaka hutchings (heliocentrics), tom skinner (owiny sigoma band, mulatu astatke) & more. together they create a sound of untamable energy, fusing huge percussion with filthy horn lines, urgent psychedelic vocals & a healthy dose of funk groove. if you've heard the horns blaring, beats blazing, synth squealing desert fried avant-rock of 'fix my life' or electro-riot of bass throbs & clarion calls, manic horns & pulse beats that is 'release!' you'll know why this band are so hotly tipped. if not, then join the party now!

natasha recommends : "All the intensity & complexity of pete wareham's main musical outlet, acoustic ladyland, but with insane energy levels (a la goat), insistent calls to dance & urgent tunes that get stuck in your brain".

derry recommends : "
does for punk funk what pete wareham’s acoustic ladyland does for punk".
