You might recognise this lot (or at least one of them).
The Victorian explorers pictured here (and in a full-page poster in NME this week) are Marmaduke Duke, aka Simon Neil (Biffy Clyro hearthrob and tattooed topless scream-monkey) and JP Reid (Sucioperro frontman, largely unknown).
The duo are set to release their second album ‘Duke Pandemonium’ in April, preceded by single ‘Kid Gloves’ on February 9. It’s produced by Mars Volta/Muse man Rich Costey, so expect interesting and noisy results.
While ‘Music Show’ is not as heavy as some of their other tracks it nevertheless has that same jittery, ‘shit-i’m-starting-to-panic’ edginess about it, ditching the screamo for drum’n’bass beats and basslines from the Squarepusher school of slap. Enjoy, and let me know what you think.
