REPO-MAN | VIDE0
September 12 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm£5
Bristol-based Repo-Man are touring in support of their new album for Stolen Body Records, ‘I Can Live With It If You Can, Son’ and are coming to Wharf Chambers!
Another new edition to the Stolen Body roster…
Repo Man are Bristol based noiseniks comprising of Bojak (vocals/sax/violin), Ant Brown (bass), Liam McConaghy (guitar) and Jesse Webb (drums). ‘I Can Live With It If You Can, Son’ is their third album, following 2015’s Minesweeping and the first recording to feature new recruit Webb (also of GNOD/ The Final Age/ Anthroproph/ Dame Area).
The album was recorded with Thomas J Bryan at Jute Box Studio, mixed with Matt Sampson at Bink Bonk Studio and mastered by Seattle-based engineer Jack Endino (Nirvana, Soundgarden, Mudhoney). It represents the band both at their rawest and most expansive. From the clanging fuzzed out sonic whirl of ‘Low Pursuit’ dissolving into the death waltz jig of ‘May I Interject’, to the lyrical puzzles and bubbling synth rotor of ‘Asexual and Spineless’ and the languid menace of the title track, ‘I can live with it if you can, son’ shows Repo Man hurtling further into respective streams of noise and compositional acuity. This culminates in ‘Moaty’ – free-form ambient jazz smashed open by the band at their heaviest.
Building on their fierce live reputation – from supporting, among others, Lydia Lunch, Enablers, USA Nails, DUDS, Lice and GNOD – ‘I Can Live With It If You Can, Son’ displays an uncompromising clarity.
Support comes from:
