THOMAS TRUAX

CAMBRIDGE: Green Mind @ The Portland Arms

FRI 12TH SEP, 2014 7.30pm

"it's a surprise to hear that many of Truax's drone and rhythm machines are increasingly producing post-industrial squall that wouldn't sound out of place on Liars' 2006 lo-fi weird rock masterpiece Drum's Not Dead. He also shares with Angus Andrew a penchant for singing songs of murder and terror. On 'The Cannibals Have Captured Our Nicole Kidman' he smears the music with threatening drone, creaking loops and half chanted vocals that recall DnD's 'It Fit When I Was A Kid'. Truax ups the Texas Chainsaw Massacre vibe even higher with a cut up and mangled hillbilly banjo break half way through. He certainly wears his agitated, restless spirit on his sleeve throughout these off-kilter noise pieces, and it's no surprise to hear him question his own sanity, "maybe I need more therapy but that would cost more money, and if I had more money would I really need more therapy" (from 'What's The Matter With My Grey Matter').

When dazzled by the lunacy of a Thomas Truax live show it's easy to overlook the innate musical skill that he has developed over years spent gigging the length and breadth of the British Isles. Aside from the noise collages Truax can write a ballad that hits you right in the heart. 'It Always Rains On Sundays' is an acoustic hymn for a girlfriend temporarily departed. Deft acoustic guitar lines intertwine with beautifully arranged cellos and a lyric that sweetly captures rainy Sunday melancholy." The Quietus
