"No. 6 Review"

Sublime and completely bonkers in equal measure. If Acoustic Ladyland were travelling gypsies and friends with Gogel Bordello this is exactly what they would sound like. Demented trumpets parp their way into an early grave whilst ungodly drums make you dance around like a mad Sicilian and link arms with the nearest stranger. Accordians gate-crash their way into the proceedings and the vocals below out some jovialities in an eastern European language of some sort. Now this is exactly what we need.

Lee Puddefoot - Artrocker

I'm Gonna Kick You In The Ass (itunes)



Deathray Trebuchay, a machine, an engine of war and a downright nasty piece of work. Born of metal and flesh in the long, hot summer of 2006, Llewelyn Ap Myrddin spewed from his twisted brain a series of pieces to challenge and delight. This bastard child, dreamt in part by a visit to Guca trumpet festival in Serbia was an attempt to break free of the shackles of traditional jazz and rock and was engineered from the outset to be unfeasibly raucous. Musical inspiration is a veritable palette of tasteful pastels, from Mike Pattons Mr Bungle and Fantomas projects, Bosnian brass band, Fanfare Ciocarlia and Japanese noise-mongers Melt Banana. Compositional style is also reflected by western classical heritage in the form of Shostakovich. Players in Deathray Trebuchay have been drawn from a similarly rich and fruity background including Bat For Lashes, Alice Russell, Simon Bookish and Helsinki and have studied at various conservatoires in London, such as Guildhall School of Music and the Royal College of Music.
