Biography

Alloy Mental are stamping their size 12 boots all over torpid dance music and stale rock music and taking no prisoners. After their first single, the eponymous ‘Alloy Mental” got Andrew Weatherall, Laurent Garnier, X-Press2, Adam Beyer, Zane Lowe, Pete Tong, Fergie, and Annie Mac all hot under the collar, the Belfast trio are about to release a dynamic album, uniting techno with alternative rock in a curling sneer of energetic mayhem.

Sounding like Nitzer Ebb on a collision course with Iggy & The Stooges as tough techno bangs and rolls along in the background, it’s the product of three years of writing and recording. “I wanted to make something that would last, an album that I could play to my kids in years to come and I knew I had to work with a singer in a song structure,” explains Phil Kieran, one-third of Alloy Mental and Northern Ireland’s most respected electro and techno producer and remixer. A softly-spoken studio maverick who has put out music on Skint, Kingsize and Bugged Out and who numbers Agoria, T.Raumschmiere and Nitzer Ebb among his remix clients. “The only problem was that most male singers I heard were like a poppy version of Dave Gahan and all the female vocalists sounded like they were singing in a tampon ad,” he laughs.

Martin Corrigan had tasted success as the frontman of the band Corrigan with their 2003 debut album.
