Piano Wire
Sym and Andy came back from the funeral of their old band 80s Matchbox B-Line Disaster with an idea. They set out to make a massive, chaotic and psychedelic punk rock record with skyscraper tunes…

Harnessing a twisted pop sensibility, alongside the swagger of prime QOTSA, it gets catchier and weirder with each listen KERRANG KKKK

suckerpunch hooks and left handed pop, venomous weirdness MOJO ****

album is exhilarating, rib-cracking, brutal fare CLASH

no denying the strength of these tunes or the bands dark energy UNCUT

cinematic post-punk with a QOTSA twist LOUDER THAN WAR

“a raucous, thrilling listen” ROCKSOUND


Tenebrous Liar
Eclectic psychedelic noise trio led by acclaimed photographer Steve Gullick…

“Heart-wringing, ear-splitting guitar wrangling for those who imagine Nick Lowe writing vocals for Neil Youngs Dead Man instrumentals.” MOJO ****

“Solid release from Tenebrous Liar that cements their position in the current crop of experimental bands.” LOUDER THAN WAR 8/10

“Builds adroitly from Birthday Party blues into a thing of thunderous ferocity” UNCUT

“Like the Sex Pistols trapped in a swamp.” ARTROCKER *****

“A document of the cursed, wretched souls, condemned to rock ‘n’ roll under pure white heat.” ROCK A ROLLA

“Ballsy and brooding, primordial industrial rhythms and swelling psychedelic feedback” NME

“Shellac, Liars and Nirvana at their most bloody-minded and musical” THE QUIETUS

4 Portsmouth gentlemen swinging between a punk rock dance party and a paranoia filled late night horror soundtrack listening session. Think: Fugazi, Future Of The Left, Coliseum, Self Defense Family, Creative Adult, Eagulls, Hookworms, Joy Division
