SAY HULLO TO:
WHO ARE: Lamby (guitar/vocals), Brown Scotch (guitar/E-bow), Tron (sound manipulation), David St James (bass) and Session (drums)
PEDDLING: Goat-voiced kook-rock
FROM THEIR BASE IN: Plymouth
THEY SAY: “We came out in a city with about as much culture as a toilet, because of this any band who’s a bit different are either called ‘pretentious’ or sound like bands with obvious similarities. No-one reads between the lines or takes things for what they are. If you can’t pin it down, it’s nonsense.”
WE SAY: With nods to Mars Volta, 36 Crazyfists, SOAD and Mr Bungle, Doxa
just about manage to temper their self-consciously wacky lyrics with some fantastic choons.
RANDOM LYRIC: “If I could kill my father, then I’m sure I would. If I could fuck my mother, then I’m sure I would. If I can kill Regina Spektor, we’ll be safe.”
NEED TO KNOW: They list their influences as altered contexts, energy, experience, expression, community, casualties and quotations. Oh, and their MySpace site features lotsa pictures of them with their tops off. Steady, girls!
