Even though they have a name my brain seems perpetually unable to spell right (my brain may just be obsessed with Kris Akabusi though), this is still yer official tip of the hat towards Wessex, Ireland’s Adebisi Shank, and their tricksy math rock squealing. Some good things about them: wearing a red hood onstage; nods towards Battles, occasional use of a voicebox. Okay, admittedly I’ll go see any band that rips off Battles but this will be dang fine. Especially since it also features Strange News From Another Star in prime support mode: garage-soaked, prison sex rockers from Cardiff don’t get much finer.

Adebisi Shank are an electric, energetic, loud band from Ireland. Taking their cue from acts such as Battles, Oxes and Lite, their debut LP “This is the album of a band called Adebisi Shank” shines through with rays of inventiveness that would teach a few of their contemporaries a thing or two in the art of writing, without ever leaning into the self indulgent persuasions many have fallen ill to when attempting this sort of ‘art noise’.

Creating a record of supreme layers and intricate execution by every means needs a good pair of hands at the helm making sure everything fits into place. And everything fits in perfecty with J.Robbins (ex-Jawbox singer and production mastermind behind records from Mock Orange, Faraquet, Ponytail, Dismemberment Plan, Braid, Texas Is The Reason, Against Me and many more)having headed this trio’s debut. The record was recorded in June at the famous Magpie Cage Studios in Baltimore, MD and mastered at Inner Ear studios by Aloha guitarist, TJ Lipple. With the approval of such highly respected musical individuals it’s already evident that this little three piece from Wexford will be making huge waves in and amongst the ever growingfield of experimental, polyrhytmic, precision based music lovers.

Already picking up plentiful of music fans on ther path they have picked up the interest of film makers and producers alike. Their music has been featured in two films: “Danger High Voltage!” which has just won the Galway Film Fleadh, was shown at Electric Picnic festival and is now going to the American festivals.
