WAX CHATTELS 'Wax Chattels' LP
Guitarless guitar music. This is the self-imposed one-line description chosen by Auckland, New Zealand's Wax Chattels. The keyboard, bass and drums trio don't have a guitar player, but their overwhelming sound and energy create an atmosphere akin to a traditional power trio - though their music is anything but traditional. They create darkly hypnotic and frenetic music that's rhythmically complex and sinister; there's heavily treated keyboards, unrestrained basslines and punishingly simple drums and it is loud!
