Fuck Buttons + Zun Zun Egui + Theo

...

Fuck Buttons was conceived by Andrew Hung & Benjamin John Power in the winter of 2004. Initially the group was born as an outlet for their nihilistic-noise tendencies but quickly, the two Fuck Buttons realised they could harness the use of noise as a tool to immerse and evoke. No longer afraid of melody or rhythm, the group started fusing all these elements to the point when drone becomes melody becomes rhythm…

Zun Zun Egui conjure up bona fide rebel music that is full of body, raw in spirit
and totally free of precedent. A heavy, heavy dance band, they fire up mighty,
eternal grooves worthy of some dust-caked Lagos street jam, but don’t just
settle for that: tropical melodies, thrilling stop-start time switches, scorching
psychedelics and robust underground rock flourishes are gathered up as the
momentum swells towards frenzied, ecstatic finales. East African guitar
practice is inflamed by multi-lingual incantations (in French, English, Creole,
Japanese…), sinuous prog gets a big bass undertow. It’s roll and roll, a
rainbow blaze of rhythm and sound that pulls both the rockers and the
writhers into its heart.

Theo
The work of one Sam Knight, is one for the math rock fans. Taut, chugging guitar loops layer up with frenetic tapping patterns that interweave in spiralling complexity before near sub-atomically precise, powerhouse drumming clatters and builds each song into juggernaut of riffs and rhythms. To achieve something like this recorded is one thing, but to see Theo perform live is quite another as each song blurs into the next and the dazzling guitar and drum acrobatics leave jaws sagging on the faces of all who bear witness to the talent on offer.
