About the album

The admiration was mutual when Tommy Moustache and Sheep Got Waxed crossed paths at a festival in Denmark. Shortly after that, these eccentric and unpredictable bands decided to join forces on stage, resulting in an explosive and inflammable combination of two drummers, two guitarists, two sax players, a bassist and a huge stack of electronics.

The music of Rotterdam-based Tommy Moustache has been described by critics as propulsive, mildly schizophrenic and heavily confusing alternative zap jazz. Sheep Got Waxed from Lithuania conjured similar unique descriptions, including “a mix of techno, footwork, Death Grips kind of trap and George Michael played by early Beatles”. But the music also contains free jazz and metal influences, according to the band members, who do not eschew complexity, but who avoid unnecessary display of virtuosity.
Die Bewunderung war beiderseitig, als sich die Wege von Tommy Moustache und Sheep Got Waxed bei einem dänischen Festival kreuzten. Kurz darauf entschlossen sich diese exzentrischen und unberechenbaren Bands dazu, sich auf der Bühne zusammenzutun. Das Ergebnis ist eine explosive und hoch entflammbare Kombination von zwei Drummern, zwei Gitarristen, zwei Saxophonisten, einem Bassisten und einem riesigen Stoß Electronics.

Kritiker beschrieben die Musik der Rotterdamer band Tommy Moustache als treibender, leicht schizophrener und äußerst verwirrender Alternative Zap Jazz. Die Letten von Sheep Got Waxed riefen ähnlich einzigartige Beschreibungen hervor, einschließlich „ein Mix aus Techno, Geschick, Death Grips-ähnlichem Trap und von den frühen Beatles gespieltem George Michael“. Doch die Musik weist auch Einflüsse von Free Jazz und Metal auf, so die Bandmitglieder, die keine Komplexität scheuen, aber unnötiges Zurschaustellen von Virtuosität vermeiden.
