Few bands have the bravery, determination and self-belief to survive times as tough as Phobophobes have endured, pretty much intact. And even fewer have the talent to rebuild themselves with such creative voracity, making some of the most alluring, unsettling, inventive and cutting-edge music of the age – the sound of The Velvets, Wire, The Cramps, The Monks, Leonard Cohen and Country Teasers fed through the foul filters of South London. No matter what fate throws at them, knocks that would destroy less hardy bands, Phobophobes are too strange and special to be beaten. http://soundcloud.com/phobophobes
GURU: At times delivering a profound staccato bark, others a full-on yell over a mighty ensemble of guitars and drums; vocalist Tommy Cherrill is on fiery form. As his bandmates amalgamate influences from barbed post-punk to crushing psychedelic riffs, Cherrill’s fury and disdain is both invigorating and imposing in equal measure.
