Ok so this one is goin to be a weird one as I like. Ben Butler & Mousepad,
crazy duet recently signed on LOAF Records (UK), is the kind of musician
I'm listenning to this days. Between post-synth-punk-funk and pure analog bla bla bla...
Ehehheheh, I don't like that, and you know it !...so please judge by yourself, but just
listenning to that huge Weather Report track in the intro, sampled by O Boogie
for the great track "Paperchaser", I was amazed and ready to hear more crazyness
from that buddies!
Ben Butler & Mousepad is the brain child of Joe Howe (Gay Against You, Germlin, Joemus),
exectuted with friend and co-conspirator, Bastian Hagedorn (GTUK). They work between
Edinburgh and Berlin.
Taking as much inspiration from Progressive Rock's excesses as from the clean, crisp "whoomp"
of the Scandinavian club scene, BB&MP is an electronic mess, teetering on the edge of disaster,
reigned in quickly by a persistent pummelling beat or lightning-fast arpeggio.
When things slow down, there is room for more consideration - analog wobble and warmth,
weird chords and byzantine structures, all shot through with enthuisiasm and clumsy energy.
Like their previous projects, BB&MP is an unpredictable, fun and musically dense project,
both live and on record.
