Biography

San Francisco, California, USA (1995 – present)

Tarentel is a band based in San Francisco, California, USA which formed in 1995. Initially, the band consisted of Danny Paul Grody and Jefre Cantu-Ledesma. The line-up shifted over the years and has included John Hughes, Trevor Montgomery, Patricia Kavanaugh, Kenseth Thibideau, Jeffrey Rosenberg, Jim Redd, Tony Cross, Steve Dye and others.

The band’s current lineup is Jefre Cantu-Ledesma, Danny Grody, Jim Redd, Tony Cross and Paul Clipson.

Tarentel began as a post-rock band, making extended, LP-side length instrumental pieces similar to those of Godspeed You! Black Emperor and Mogwai. Over the course three full-length albums and a number of singles and EPs, Tarentel has gradually shifted their style to a looser, more improvisational form that incorporates genres such as noise and drone as well as having a strong psychedelic element.

Tarentel’s fifth member, Paul Clipson, projects original Super-8 film compositions that accompany each live performance by the band.

    Man oh man do I wish these guys would put out some new material. Sadly I think they're on a permanent "hiatus".

    Try as I might, I just can't get into their more recent material. I'm just too much in love with their output from 98-02, especially From Bone to Satellite, Order of Things, and the Travels in Constants EP.

    They're probably not done yet. JCL is just establishing more work as a solo artist.

    Last thing I heard Jefre Cantu-Ledesma moved to Germany this year. I doubt they'll break up though, they'll probably just be one more band on an eternal hiatus.

    I think they broke up. No word from them at all since 2009.
