Biography

Atlanta, United States

Mugu Guymen are a noise-rock duo from Atlanta / ‘Nigeria’, they are named after Nigerian internet scammers who collect email addresses from website guestbooks.

Using contact-miked drums and drum-triggered sounds run through effects supplemented by guitar and hollered vocals, Mugu Guymen create a psychedelic, high-energy, chaotic punk soundscape, with drums either pounding out loud rock beats or building up to that point, layered with largely harsh, swirling, analog noises, with laser sounds well-represented. In technique, they are similar to Mindflayer, but they manage to create a much more varied sound. And since it’s improvised using literally experimental techniques, you get moments that are just as much a surprise to the band as to the listener, but which still sound perfect.

Mugu Guymen have toured with or opened for: Child Pornography, Rahdunes, A Pink Cloud, Indian Jewelry, La Otracina, Google Earth, Arthur Doyle, magicicada, Pony Bones, Dave Matthews Band, Kawabata Makoto, Divided Like a Saints, Social Junk, Temple of Bon Matin, Jarboe, Newton, The Beastie Boys, CJ Boyd, The Darkness, The USA Is a Monster, Lakes, Always, Cash Slave Clique, NO-fi, Watersports, It’s A Trap, Yellow Crystal Star, Hubcap City (from belgium), Suffering bastard, Laundry Room Squelchers, Black Meat, The Flaming Lips, Whiskey Priest, Carbon Leaf, Garbage Island, and more.
