For more than 20 years now they have been making their own unique way far from the beaten mainstream track and conformity. Influences from hardcore, classic, breakbeat, jazz, techno and folk create an hypnotic soundtrack to the famous “in-mind movie”.
Both musicians remain true to their punk roots, even meticulous passages never come over as sterile, and the sound still has that somewhat rough charm of a garage band. It’s clear that here the depths of established listening habits are plumbed and put to the test. A band that has broken out of the musical norm to create something completely new, their own thing.
