A fetish for screenprinted wares, cryptic lyrics and obsessions with fifth dimensional time travel helps garner sense of their erratic sensibilities.
Original members Joseph Prendergast (guitar/vocals) and David Catmur (drums/vocals) being joined by Tom Coulson Smith (bass) and James Elliot Field (keys), Tubelord are reincarnate. Beginning 2011 with a mammoth 40-date headline tour of Europe, developing on from a Glastonbury 2010 slot, touring alongside And So I Watch You From Afar and Oceansize, a devonshire cabin is where they have chosen to record the follow up to debut ‘Our First American Friends’ (Hassle/Vagrant) and the subsequent EP ‘Tezcatlipoca’. The band have left their roots of London for Bristol, their reasoning, according to drummer David Catmur, being “”there’s a better internet connection here”, “and if the theme we’re tackling is the internet, we’d best nest up here” adds ivory-banger James.
For now, Tubelord are broken projectors, patiently awaiting someone to plug them in to a power supply (preferably with wi-fi to stream their imaginations into your screens) and a helping hand to focus their lens. In the meantime, the new video for ‘Bazel’ will have to do.
On 21/11/2012 the band announced their break-up via their Facebook page, posting a new video titled ‘This is it’ along with comment stating ‘We couldn’t leave without one last song could we?’
