Birthday Cake for Breakfast interviews Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs


They say:

It’s apt that on their second album, Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs – the riff-hungry, ear-piercingly-loud Newcastle based doom outfit – recorded in the presence of actual pigs. Wild boar in fact, that – along with deer – surrounded the converted farmhouse in the Italian countryside where the band spent a week writing, recording and living in fear of being eaten alive by boars.

“Totally spooked Chris…” Chuckles Matt Baty, vocalist and synth player in the five-strong Pigs’, recounting the brush with death experienced by bassist John-Michael Hedley and drummer Chris Morley. “Chris was stood outside, smoking, and he comes charging through – I think he locked Johnny outside in panic. Ran in – ‘There’s a bear, there’s a bear outside!’ Johnny was banging on the door to try and get in…”

Baty tells me this with a laugh from the safety and comfort of the backstage area at BBC Radio 6 Music Festival, many miles away from muddy fields and ‘bears’ on the loose. Whilst outside in the hallway Aussie artist Julia Jacklin peruses the fruit bowl and hip-hop royalty Chali 2na helps himself to a complimentary coffee, we’re sat inside a curtained off area as Baty tells me all about their Italian break putting together ‘King of Cowards’.


“…It’s quite cliché saying we went away, that’s where we wrote our album…” He says. “The Italy thing, we had a few dates get cancelled on a European tour, so we had like a four or five day gap. So it was either cancel the whole tour, which would’ve been a shame, or find something else to do. So that was our something else to do and it was really beneficial.”...

The Mirror say some words about The UtopIa Strong


They say:

Snooker ace Steve Davis gets Glastonbury spot and album release with The Utopia Strong

His DJ career has since gone from strength to strength and now the charts beckon with the release of his debut album in September

Steve Davis is releasing his first ever album after forming a new musical outfit, called The Utopia Strong. 

He swapped the snooker table for turntables… and Steve Davis is now hoping for a Big Break in the charts.

The legend is releasing his first album in September after forming musical outfit The Utopia Strong.

He has already secured a spot at Glastonbury in a few weeks and music website The Quietus has described first single Brainsurgeons 3 as a “storming debut”.

Not bad at the age of 61.


Davis, who started out as a DJ by fronting a weekly show on local radio in 1996, seven years after his sixth world snooker title, formed the group with Kavus Torabi and Coil’s Michael J York...

Russian site Straw makes Gnoomes' MU! their Best album of Spring


The say:

"In the third minute I had to make the music louder so that this immersive effect would eat me up" Best album of spring

May 31 English label Rocket Recordings published record of the Permian group Gnoomes . I already called it the main recording of the spring, which deserves a separate discussion. Getting started. For now, I’ve given two reviews from the Western press about this album, and later we will talk with the guys about music, colleagues, how to share the stage with Wooden Shjips and the Western scene in general, Perm and life.

How do you find out about everything, if you do not tell.

Listen to me.

Gnoomes is a Russian band that plays a rollicking and perky psychedelic rock, created for live performance. And their new album MU ! , by their own admission, his task is to recreate the atmosphere of their concerts. Congratulations, they did an excellent job.


The opening track Utro is riddled with amazing electronic textures, the sound of the instruments is literally glued together, as if Kevin Shields came into their studio and decided to play them on the guitar, and at the same time screwed a couple pedalek. It is, indeed, unexpected to hear a curtsey from Gnoomes toward the early plane of the landscape....

The Quietus say some words about The Utopia Strong


They say:

DJ partners Kavus Torabi and Steve Davis, alongside Michael J. York of Coil, Teleplasmiste and Guapo, have teamed up under the band name The Utopia Strong.

Above, you can listen to their first single 'Brainsurgeons 3', which features on their self-titled debut album, set for release on September 13. The ten-minute ‘Brainsurgeons 3’ stands as a centrepiece for the album and has already been popular with audiences of Torabi and Davis’s DJ sets.

“Some nights the track got the most thumbs up of the set. We broke Shazam with it!” Davis said.

He also said that the name of the band came from the euphoria that came from collaborating with York and Torabi, a sentiment which Torabi echoed.


“The overall sound was pretty accidental,” he said. “I certainly didn't expect the music to sound so ecstatic and positive. Without wanting to puncture the mystery, there really felt like an element of magic at play in making this album.”...

PROG say some words about The Utopia Strong


They say:

Steve Davis and Kavus Torabi release first new music from Utopia Strong
Former World Snooker champion Steve Davis and Gong/Knifeworld's Kavus Torabi's new musical outfit, The Utopia Strong, have released the first new music. You can listen to the ten-minute long Brainsurgeons 3 in full below.

The pair, along with Coil/Guapo member Michael J. York, will release their self-titled debut album through Rocket recordings on September 13.

“The band evolved from having had so much fun together and also sharing similar musical tastes,” former Prog columnist Davis told us. “Mike was living in Glastonbury where Kavus and I DJ’d in 2017. We all hung out together during the festival and the Utopia Strong was born. The name came later and I suppose reflects the fact that - once we’d jammed together and listened back to the improvising - the music felt pretty euphoric and otherworldly. It was very psychedelic but also strangely wonky”...

Echoes & Dust Review Cardiff Psych & Noise Fest (Teeth of the Sea)

Echoes & Dust Review Teeth of the Sea at Cardiff Psych & Noise Fest,

They say:

'It would take a special band to follow them – thankfully Teeth of the Sea are just that. They started with ‘Gladiators Ready’. the most potent military-grade banger from their latest album Wraith, which felt like a statement of intent. A statement that read, “we will not be fucking about”. And fuck about they did not. For all their experimental, more avant-garde leanings, TotS excel in creating eminently danceable slabs of psych-rock tinged, trumpet-laden electronica tailor made for making a full room move – which I think it did. I may have been somewhere at the front, with my eyes closed, lost in glorious, pulsing noise.'

The Press Release Reads:

The overall sound was pretty accidental” reckons Kavus Torabi. “I certainly didn’t expect the music to sound so ecstatic and positive, Without wanting to puncture the mystery, there really felt like an element of magic at play in making this album. For the most part it was incredibly effortless”

“The band evolved from having had so much fun together and also sharing similar musical tastes” continues Steve Davis, “Mike (York) was living in Glastonbury where Kavus and I DJ’d in 2017. We all hung out together during the festival and the Utopia Strong was born. The name came later and I suppose reflects the fact that - once we’d jammed together and listened back to the improvising - the music felt pretty euphoric and otherworldly. It was very psychedelic but also strangely wonky”

It was never any secret that Davis - even at the peak of his household name status in the 1980s - was as happy putting a needle on a vinyl record as anything else involving a cue. Renowned as an aficionado of soul, jazz-funk and progressive rock from the seventies onwards, he famously once single-handedly promoted three nights at the Bloomsbury Theatre for French esoteric leviathans Magma, so frustrated was he by their absence from British shores.

Steve was first introduced to the modular synthesis world by Teeth Of The Sea’s Mike Bourne at a show the latter was playing with Hirvikolari at Cafe Oto in 2016. “Like many others before me, I was intrigued by the wires, knobs and blinking lights of the modular synth and it wasn’t that long after that I felt the need to get my own, even though I didn’t have a clue what I was letting myself in for! The instrument has the ability to create whatever your imagination can deal with”

What’s more - with his tastes having moved into the fringes of experimental electronica as his record collection expanded exponentially, his music obsession took on new bounds after his retirement in 2016, with his DJ partnership with Torabi (Gong/Cardiacs/Knifeworld/Guapo) taking him to festivals and clubs for many a head spinning rampage, in which the wide-eyed assembled would be as likely to hear Autechre as Black Sabbath.

All this aside, few would have expected the artist whose previous recorded output comprised one Top Ten hit in 1986 (The Matchroom Mob featuring Chas & Dave’s ‘Snooker Loopy’) would be a part of the aural epiphanies that are chronicled in The Utopia Strong’s debut album, The combined forces of Davis, Torabi and Michael J. York (Coil/Teleplasmiste/Guapo) have arrived at no less than a modular-driven kosmische colossus of transcendent power enough to drive all talk of green baize firmly into the blue yonder.

An extraordinary marriage between celestial radiance and hallucinatory repetition - in which Davis’ modular geometry and ambient structures weave with Torabi’s keen and skewed sense of melody and York’s various gifts for pipes, drones and fevered abstract - the result is a beguiling tapestry as likely to remind listeners of the countercultural benchmarks of Terry Riley, Cluster and Fripp/Eno as the later vortex-voyages of Emeralds and Seefeel.

Perhaps the centrepiece of the record is the ten-minute ‘Brainsurgeons 3’, in which techno-style exultance, hypnotic foward-motion and the perhaps unlikely but crucial arrival of York’s bagpipes collude to provide a truly formidable endorphin rush. “Kavus and I started programming an unmixed version of Brainsurgeons 3 into our DJ sets and the reaction was amazing!” concurs Steve. “Some nights the track got the most thumbs up of the set. We broke Shazam with it!”

“in twenty years of making records it’s certainly been the easiest and most enjoyable to make” reflects Kavus. “Now, this may have been partly due to us having no preconceptions or expectations but it wasn’t just that. There was absolutely no conflict, and we spent a lot of time together working on it - in my experience that’s a total fucking miracle”

“The personal journey I’ve been on since January 2nd 2018 with Kavus and Mike has been surreal” reflects Steve. “Probably more so than even the path that unfolded for me in snooker. That was pretty far out but this seems otherworldly! Maybe Glastonbury is a mystical place after all”

Get into This reviews Gnoomes live in Liverpool


They say:

...Gnoomes. Yeah! They start off doing their best Good Cop, Bad Cop routine. It’s all quite measured and synthy at first. Quite subtle. Until the manic drums kick in and the guitar gets annoyed.

This will be some ride.

There’s so much reverb on the vocals and echo on the guitar that it’s difficult to tell which band member is making which noise. Not that it matters, because this is a glorious meld of noise and rhythm. They are equally happy playing 4-minute numbers from MU! as they are grinding out 10-minute behemoths from earlier albums.

Maybe the longer numbers are actually where the band shines most. These are the songs given room to breathe and grow. To develop into interesting spaces.

The Good Cop synths are getting angry now, as is pretty much everything else and Gnoomes hit their power boost button. GC leaves the room. And what we get is an ever increasing level of intensity that has this room not quite sure how to respond. It’s mesmerising. It’s special...

Musos' Guide reviews Gnoomes live in London


They say:

...And then it was Gnoomes’ turn. They weren’t wearing denim jackets or hats and they looked dead serious; especially their newest member Masha (synths).

MU! is an adventurous yet spotless album, and they performed it beautifully. Their sound was intricate and deep, enough to make this man next to the stage shake and make praying motions (really intense and creepy).

One of the things that made their sound so detailed and diverse was the ridiculous amount of pedals lined up in front of the guitarist; rampant during songs like 'Ursa Major' and 'Utro', more melodic and Tame Impala-like for 'Glasgow Coma State' and very melancholic '90s sound for my favourites, 'Sword In The Stone' and 'How Do You'.

It was clear that the addition of a new member had made them much MUCH better, giving each of them the opportunity to develop and enhance their sound, and I bet the crowd could tell; it was a perfect gig. They don’t seem to have any more gigs planned in London for now, but do yourself a favour and go see them next time, and check their album out in the meantime!...

Mix it all up reviews Gnoomes live in Portsmouth


They say:

Russia’s Gnoomes headlined the night bringing their psych, kraut rock and self-coined stargaze to the worlds first and currently only crocodile church that is The House of Rapture. The band are close to finishing up their seven date UK tour in support of their latest album release ‘Mu!’ last week. I’d only come across Gnoomes for the first time following the release of their latest single ‘Glasgow Coma State‘ a month or so back but was impressed enough by the experimental side of their music that I knew they were a must to see live.

The lights were dimmed in an attempt to give the space an even more “church” style vibe and Gnoomes took to the stage for a set of experimental goodness. Their live performance was much less frantic but more intense than what I’d expected based upon listening to their music. Hypnotic and mesmerising would be the best way to describe Gnoomes absorbing, mostly fuzz-filled, even sometimes ambient cacophony of sounds and noise live. With expansive layers of cold-wave, psychedelic sounds amongst almost indecipherable vocals, the quartet manage to create something ethereal but also harsh in the best sense of the word. Gnoomes are a band that you’ve got to see live to appreciate their music fully....

Soundblab review Gnoomes MU!

Soundblab review Gnoomes MU!

They say:

Sitting here, listening to a few of my favourite artists of the last few years like Goat, Flowers Must Die, White Manna, Follakzoid, I realise that these bands, apart from the obvious broad church of psychedelia they inhabit, also have an experimental reach going well beyond the folk music of their respective countries. They make me think a lot about the music that laid the foundation for my own musical tastes. They strive to make their music multicultural rather than cultural. They pay no deference to musical fads. They revel in patchworking sounds into something new and vibrant, and even if the results are sometimes perplexing, they’re always fresh, always stimulating.

Gnoomes is another such band. ‘Utro’ is as strong an opener as I’ve heard in a while. A suffusion of fuzzed up guitar and unearthly synthesiser backfilled with monstrous bass and served up as rave music for psych fans. It’s as cool as it sounds. ‘Sword in the Stone’ is a motoric rocker which sounds like something that might have resulted should Alan Vega have written a song for Tears for Fears......

Norwich Music City Review Gnoomes / Wooden Shjips’ Gig

This is what they say:

When Wooden Shjips’ name appeared on the Norwich Arts Centre listings I was quite excited to spot it and immediately marked it on the calendar, I was even more excited when it was recently announced that regular visitors to Norwich, Gnoomes were added to the bill, making it more like a double-header gig for me.....

.....So, having arrived just in time I quickly made my way to the front and was immediately impressed by their huge and impressive sound, so powerful with the expanded line-up and the Norwich Arts Centre acoustics. A full 45 minute set absolutely flew by in a mesmeric storm of what many called shoegaze but Gnoomes afficionados know it to be their own brand of what they call stargaze, which is a much better name, mixed with some strong and insistent krautrock creating a lucid dreaming feel. This waking life. The guitars are loud and exciting, mixed with effects, synths and incredibly precise drumming. The set flowed brilliantly with songs often merging into one another before they closed with a blistering, re-arranged and shortened version of the 16 minute epic Roadhouse, the song that first brought them to my attention. They’ve got a really exciting live edge and the crowd loved it. Established Gnoomes fans and first-timers alike.

NARC say some words about Teeth of the Sea's up-and-coming Newcastle show


They say:

THE KALEIDOSCOPICALLY DIVERSE AND INVENTIVE BAND PLAY IN NEWCASTLE

Back in the nineties, a certain strain of British music journalist seemed to devote their attention to coming up with increasingly unwieldly, implausible and obscure sub-genres and scenes that they could claim to have ‘discovered’: the Camden lurch or Romo, anyone? (I mean, who would ever take a genre called Britpop seriously? It’ll never catch on.)

While the hyperbole and incestuousness of that clique isn’t missed, when writing about a band as kaleidoscopically diverse and inventive as Teeth Of The Sea, it’s hard not to conclude they need a whole new tag all of their own. Anything from intense rave breakdowns, dramatic heavy metal solos, sinister music concrete, melodious Miles Davis horn melodies, glacial ambient pop and much more can be found in the toolkit for their ever-restless and always impressive post-everything work.

Having released their brilliant, audacious fifth album Wraith earlier in the year, the band now bring their stellar live show to Newcastle’s Star & Shadow Cinema on Saturday 8th June for a very welcome Tyneside return. If that’s not enough for you, support on the night comes from local post-rock dons Parastatic. On the back of some sporadic but exhilarating live shows previewing new material last year, expect fireworks. There’s also the matter of new duo Beanotown Secret Police, who open the show with their minimal synth punk.

The New Noise interviews DJINN


They say:

Let's start with the company name. Jinn, or djinn in Arabic, would be roughly translatable as a goblin. A supernatural entity, cited in the Koran and entered into the mythological / folkloristic imagination, halfway between the angelic world of divinities and the diabolical world of human beings. More precisely, they are "spiritual spirits" who infested deserts and inspired poets. Mysterious creatures perhaps portrayed in black and white on the cover artwork. Equally mysterious is the formation of the present duo, composed by members of the Swedish bands Goat and Hills, both not by chance in the catalog of the psychedelic Rocket Recordings, which gives this instrumental debut to the press. Rocket, who has recently released Josefin Öhrn + The Liberation's third album and is about to release the new work by the Russians Gnoomes, even though the British label's 2019 has been branded for now especially by the sensational Wraith of Teeth Of The Sea , between noise, electronics and free-jazz.

The DJINN project moves even more in a free-jazz perspective, so much so that it is considered - according to the press notes - "the first properly jazz record" by Rocket, with the ghosts of Alice and John Coltrane moving in the background. In this sense the first track in the lineup is clear, entitled "Jazz Financed" and gradually more and more cacophonous. The "Algäbbanem" and "My Bankaccount" are in the back, well in line with avant-afro-rock astral trends. The most fascinating and basically peculiar episodes, however, are those in which one turns towards obscure metaphysical dimensions, as in the luxuriant and pacifying first extract “Le Jardin De La Morte”, a step away from the new age, or in the graceful melancholy in point of sheets of "Ghostdance", which with its delicate armory of wood, keys and percussion would not mind Angelo Badalamenti. "Fiskehamn Blues" keeps an ear turned to the East, while "Rertland Bussels" anagrams the name of the philosopher Bertrand Russell paying homage to the words as in a transcendent voodoo rite. Until the closing by the ironic assonances of "Djinn And Djuice". Neo-monks of worship.

Nevolume previews Teeth of the Sea's show in Newcastle this weekend


They say:

Gig Preview: Teeth of the Sea at The Star and Shadow Cinema, 

When London-born band Teeth of the Sea make their way to Newcastle this month expect nothing short of a mystical encounter.

The unique trait of this band is their innate ability to merge sounds of different genres into an entrancing, musical tapestry.

The outfit are contemporary psychedelic alchemists with genre-bending powers. Their latest album, ‘Wraith’, captures this essence as it incorporates the progressive rock styles of Goblin with the dream-inducing, minimalistic techno of Tangerine Dream, finally coated with a smooth, but haunting, layer of jazz.

So head to The Cluny this month and allow Teeth of the Sea to drift you through their magical soundscapes.

Teeth of the Sea will head to The Star and Shadow Cinema, Newcastle on Saturday 8th June. Tickets, priced at £9.35 in advance, are available from seetickets.com
