Swiss duo, Klaus Johann Grobe, play a kind of danceable Krautrock informed by early '80's New York punk funk pioneers such as ESG.

Driven by an organic yet metronomic beat aligned with synth, chant-like vocals and a monstrous funky bass, this is seriously bum waggling electro-freak goodness. The music does seem to aim towards a certain kind of hypnosis, particularly as the sleeping pill echo-heavy vocals cycle over the locked grooves the pair throw down.

This band are certainly aiming towards the more dance-orientated arena of Kraut music, aligning the metro pulse of Klaus Dinger and Kraftwerk's calculators to more biological factors - kind of like moss growing on the mainframe.

The duo played selected UK dates in 2013 in support of their vinyl only album release that gained a great Shindig review, Louder than War artist of the day and Norman Records Single of the Week. This included a rapturous late night set at Liverpool International Festival Of Psychedelia

Support comes from Leeds' finest...

Experimental live electronica by Andy Abbott of That Fucking Tank & Nope. Dark, brooding psychedelia for synths and drum machines with nods to Fuck Buttons, Boredoms, Mogwai and Phuture.


Get Machine, Destroy!
Get Machine, Destroy! is Adam Taylor, a Leeds-based industrial party machine who draws influence from all corners of electronic music, particularly early hip-hop, eight bit and wub-wub-wubstep. Depending on your perception, Get Machine, Destroy! is either a one man electronica outfit or a robotic seven-piece orchestra with a human conductor, this show sees him expand that line up further with live drumer and more.

Tickets are £4 Adv and are available from Crash Records, Jumbo Records and We Got Tickets.
