PULLED APART BY HORSES
Pulled Apart By Horses are excited to announce that they are once again ready to charge from the starting stalls with the release of a brand new single, ‘V.E.N.O.M’ on the 16th of January 2012 through Transgressive Records. This will be the first opportunity to hear the results of the band’s work with legendary producer Gill Norton (Pixies, Foo Fighters etc), ahead of the album’s release in 2012.
The band’s self-titled 2010 debut was a sonic maelstrom of screamo and hard disco riffage; here was heavy music that you could shake a tail feather to, pop music at its most corrupted. Dance music played by wiry punk weirdo's.
Essentially, the band’s much-talked about live show captured on plastic, early singles such as ‘Back To The Fuck Yeah’ and ‘High Five, Swan Dive, Nose Dive’ somehow ended up being played repeatedly by Radio 1, on whose playlists they gleefully sat like the mad tramp that’s gate-crashed the toff’s tea party.
But things move fast. Pulled Apart By Horses have already moved way beyond those early days. TheLeeds quartet have put meat on the brittle musical bones of their debut and with their second album have created a monster. It’s a much more muscular creature than its kid brother, one that could go toe-to-toe with titans like AC/DC, Nirvana or Queens Of The Stone Age and still come out looking pretty after twelve rounds.
The Computers are doing their upmost to inject excitement into rock n roll again. Recorded in four short days in the Californian home of John ‘Speedo’ Reis, ‘This Is The Computers’ was recorded live, to tape. That means no overdubs. No computers were involved (irony). There were no tweaks, corrections or auto-tuning – this is the real deal, baby. Warts and all, as Lemmy would say.
