Wafts of Voodoo Techno, stabs of electro blues, inner space sci-fi effects and thick synth melodies coming on like tar flavoured honey. The twisted
noir-pop of the Guessmen confounds expectations.
Their recent album "Back From The Bins" has been hailed as a masterpiece by some and un-listenable by those of a delicate disposition. Whilst shifting
from gnarly hobo disco to jazz infused electro, the songs manage to hang together with enough identifiable cohesion to keep things from being on the wrong side of random, maintaining the all important GROOVE as the centre of their world.
With extremely physical shows, Guessmen are an outfit to thoroughly involve
yourself with in a live setting. They're "absolutely wild!… passionate,
energetic, gifted, committed, dangerous and full of life." Tom Robinson, BBC 6Music.
They have even reportedly induced labour at one show.
"If you like your music odd, you will appreciate this recordŠ Like a homicidal Hot Chip, The Guessmen will f**k you up! On the dancefloor!
