Members: Marc & Sam
We like to describe our music as duelling basses, one of whom is playing the ukulele. Our music is rhythm driven, experimental turbo folk with heavy classic prog rock influence. Marc rocks the ukulele and Sam picks on the acoustic bass. All of our recordings are made by balancing our respective teletouchtronic devices on our knees, recording a tune, and splicing the recordings each to a channel. We are not tech wizards. We can barely get our phones to work most of the time.
We are currently writing our first album that will be called The Human Threat. It will eventually be arranged into two 20-25min continuous segments, similar to many LPs of yore; a concept we find both immensely enjoyable and inspiring. While we are committed to having no singer or lyrics, each song remains deeply meaningful and has a story behind it. They all have something to do with mollusks and the consequences humanity has inflicted upon them as a phylum. Every mollusk has its story, those who speak up are the ones that are heard.
For instance, Gaseous Gastropod is about an unidentified mollusk that has gone extinct and exists only as a sad cloud of gas. Cephalopod Shuffle is about an octopus seemingly dancing on the seafloor interacting with a diver. 3 Slimy Snails and a Serpent is about three shelled creatures hitching a ride before hill folk dine on rattlesnake and escargot for dinner. Etc.
