BILGE PUMP (leeds, uk)
bilge pump have a disturbing ability to be better than any band they play with. imagine a boiling-over bastard concoction of all the best bits of the jesus lizard, led zeppelin, the fall, blue cheer, funkadelic and king crimson. a thick broth of art-punk fractured progressive noise, condensed into atonal pop songs free of power chords. nitro-fuelled avant-jazz rhythms create enough structural form amongst the twisted guitar and off-the-cuff witticisms to provide an uncanny ability to incite dancing! It doesn't matter how wired or weird bilge pump get; behind the progressive noise there are clear, distinctive, memorable songs: a rare and winning combination!
