The Trumpets of Death


Formerly Benjamin Wetherill & The Trumpets of Death, The Trumpets of Death are Now playing on Saturday afternoon filling in for Stuart Warwick. This three piece play extremely eerie noise akin to Suicide or Wolf Eyes that reels in your ears and brings you into a droney trance, absolutely incredible musicianship played with an equal amount of vigour and confidence.

A welcome return for one of Leeds' and (BW's) favourite three piece grunge trios. The Uprights havn't performed in Leeds for quite a while since Craig moved to Glasgow so this is a real treat! Alongside the Bolognians and That Fucking Tank, The Thursday line up couldn't be any better! Above is one of three videos produced by Aurora Fearnley, I recommend you dig out the other two.

Drum Eyes

Myspace | Facebook | | Label

Drum Eyes are DJ Scotch Egg's drum thunder worship gang. Experts at whipping up a hypnotic maelstrom of tribal drumming trip-outs infused with sludgy doom and weird electronics. It makes a lot of sense that Eda - originally from the Boredoms - is a member of Drum Eyes, as the songs can twist 180 degrees and sound equally as beamed-in from some alien kingdom, taking the weirdest parts of Krautrock and hurling punk-synth, crushing walls of ambience and 8-bit frazzle into the mix with relish.
DJ Scotch Egg began forcing Game Boys to make the most unholy music for a variety of labels like Adaadat and Wrong Music, then with last year's transition album entitled 'Drumized' for Load Records - home of Lightning Bolt, Sightings, Brainbombs etc. - Shige began experimenting with live instrumentation. With Drum Eyes as a five-piece band, he has finally realised the full extent of his intent.
