Biography

We create at night in a decaying unit of breeze blocks. We drink tea out of dirty mugs and wish that our hands were warmer. We have to fight daily with potted plants and lawnmowers to get to our instruments. Sometimes they attack us. We have scars. We have a sledgehammer - we smash up old washing machines. The skip is not our friend. We record in bedrooms. We like to travel to far away lands to play shows for decent, handsome people, if you would like us to seranade you please get in contact.

We are a 4-piece band from the hotbed of musical talent *cough* that is Peterborough. Since 2005 we have 100's of gigs under our belt having played relentlessly across the UK and Ireland. Our music is a self-styled cross breed of Post Rock, Hardcore and Electro Glitchery. We have been compared (lazily) to bands such as 65 days of Static, Mogwai, GSYBE.

Our live shows tend to set us apart from other bands of our genre. Every show is a half hour (or more) of non-stop energy and enthusiasm. If we haven't lost half our body weight in sweat and our fingers aren't bleeding then we haven't done our job properly.

We have received airplay in the UK and Ireland through BBC Introducing as well as several local BBC stations and independent radio shows. We have also been played on shows in Spain, France, Belgium, Italy and Russia amongst others.
