Riding in on a wave of unrelenting drums and fuzzed-up bass, An Experiment On A Bird In The Air Pump are every bit as intriguing and disturbing as the eighteenth century painting they take their name from. Sparse post-punk soundscapes are the order of the day, all topped off with strong vocals offered in turn by each of the band’s three members, who go by the enigmatic names of C-Bird, D-Bird and X-Bird. They released their debut EP, ‘These Sins’, in December last year, and recorded the follow-up last month with Charlatans frontman Tim Burgess producing. While you’re waiting for that, ensure that you go and see them live at the earliest possible opportunity and check out their MySpace profile (possibly not in that order).
