Adventures in sounds and spaces.
“Like a sexier Human League, like New Order on viagra, like OMD at their most wilfully obscure.” The Devil has The Best Tuna
“Filthy electro-rock… like some kind of beautiful crime.” Niall O’Keeffe, NME
“Slick spiky electronic rock that screams darkness beneath a seemingly delicate exterior.” Natasha Scharf, Metal Hammer.
The latest and strangest from The Mekano Set collects noises new and old along with a seemingly unlikely cover-version: demonstrating that – if and when they choose – the “wilfully obscure” Liverpool Post-Punk collective can deliver “proper songs”; complete with key-changes, moments of clarity and rocking riffage alongside their usual mangled guitar drones and pounding beats.
Darkly psychedelic guitars, Post-Punk beats, noisy sci-fi synth sirens and grinding bass hooks abound. Guaranteed to alienate as much as entertain.
Initially devised as a tribute to their love of all things Hawkwind / Moorcock / Ballard (including a Cornelius tribute sleeve-note rant that has suitably transmogrified into a novel of sorts) Time Fix is out now via Bandcamp and a short-run of cassettes via Stray Recordings / Vampire Car-Chase Records.
“Now it’s dark.”
