Yerba Mansa

“Edwin Stevens (Irma Vep, Sex Hands, Klaus Kinski etc) and Andrew Cheetham (ABC trio, Birchall/Cheetham duo etc) are two of Manchester’s most prolific purveyors of raging, outer-limits rock-ism. Both members of free-rock army Desmadrados Soldados de Ventura as well as countless other projects, they take a similar blueprint for their head-to-head skyscraping duo, only with a singularity of heavy chord chug that aligns them with Gown or even Michael Flower & Chris Corsano. Truly mind blowing.” – Nick Mitchell, Golden Lab Records, 2015

Crashing into action with a flurry of distorted guitars and schizophrenic drums comes Manchester noisy outfit, Yerba Mansa. The band’s eminating sense of freeness sees high energy met with jolting, angular sounds, their latest LP Untitled on Deep Distance label, a wonderful, anarchic expedition.

Sizzling, stifling and ever so slightly ear-scraping, Yerba Mansa is a must for any lover of untamed guitars.
