Biography

drummer ed lush and bass player matt chilton formed spork after discovering they were both in fact closet guitarists with a liking for atmospheric space rock.

neither of them sing but there’s nothing missing here amongst the venus-bound guitars, glacial rhythms and echoes of early ‘70’s tangerine dream. what’s more the music was recorded without the help of loops or computer editing - for the listener this means all the invisible threads are still intact. spork have effectively created their own kind of man-made machine music.

live the line-up is extended to a five-piece band with projected visuals playing a key role. recently they performed a rousing live soundtrack to new russian film ‘a sister’s kiss’ as part of the east end film festival - as a result they have been asked to repeat the performance at the big chill later this summer.

spork release their debut album ‘many of them seriously’ on scratchy records on august 4th 2008.

spork was also a punk/hardcore band from kalamazoo, mi that existed between ‘1991-93. most notable for playing seminal hardcore band rorschach’s last show in kent ohio in 1993. members would go on to form jihad.


Review of ‘Many of them seriously’ from subba-cultcha.com:

From a slow burning, intensifying, building crescendo of noise that is opening track DUST BOWL through to the following 13 tracks, this is an album of imagination, brilliant invention and noise landscapes designed to intrigue and titillate.
