GAD WHIP formed in 2014 and blend avant-garde sensibilities with a contemporary take on the place where DIY culture meets post-punk. Hints of deconstructed garage rock and interstellar voyaging through sweat drenched waking dreams. Immediate, powerful, confounding and kept in place by wry, sometimes observational, semi-spoken vocals. This is music primed perfect for any 21st century meltdown in a suburban sprawl. Their music has been released by a range of labels, from NYC’s Ever/Never Records, Germany’s X-Mist Records, Canada’s Arachnidiscs Recordings and UK/Poland based Fourth Dimension Records.
THE PHONE CALL feature rogue members of David Cronenburg's Wife and Gloaming Knave. Clicky riffs, synth pizzazz, frothy shuffles of beat and some superior observant commentary abound, arcane and everyday in equal measure. The Phone Call formed in 2019 as a strange brew of Fine Young Cannibals, The Fall and The Bhundu Boys.
