Introducing the debut album by Bonnacons of Doom
Bonnacons Of Doom, a shifting collective based principally in Liverpool, have announced details of their self-titled debut album, out on 18 May 2018 on Rocket Recordings.
Listen to 'Solus' the first track to be revealed from the album above and read what The Quietus says about it here: The Quietus
Recorded at Suburban Home studios by its owner and Hookworms frontman MJ, this recorded incarnation of Bonnacons’ arcane conjury operates stubbornly free of genre, sashaying alongside psychrock, repetitive drone and electronic experimentation whilst consumed by a devotional intensity that’s multiplied by the transcendental echolalia of vocalist Kate. The result is a formidable cosmic continuum that joins the dots in constellations spanning the jam-based magick of Amon Düül II, the wild abandon of ecstatic jazz and the revolutionary spirit of acid house to produce a mighty alchemical charge.
“Bonnacons Of Doom are hard to beat. If GOAT swapped their feral acid-afrobeat for lurid drone and crushing motoric drum-fire, and traded tribal feathers for hooded capes and reflective masks, you might be part way there.” Clash
