THROATMOTOR / About
Electrothrash/Alterna-synthpunk/moog-drenched cerealbox noize. The band's origin is relatively unknown, though the following was found scribbled on a napkin at an IHOP in Bangor:
THROATMOTOR live in Ottawa, ON Canada...though their roots lie in New Brunswick. Band-founder Trev grew up there studying to become a wrestler. He failed, and due to his scrawny nature, went for musician bum instead. Soonafter he met Jamie, who had found a bass lying under a heap of used diapers, discarded tampons and razorblades. they moved to ottawa and met Tom behind the dumpster he'd set fire to, and was subsequently arrested for. a short while later, and after burning a fatty, they decided to watch cartoons with the volume down and jam overtop. Out of the rain came Jon, the new guy across the street who had just caught a guitar that had fallen from the sky. Soaking wet and blinking, he plugged in and supplied the glue for a band otherwise held together with gum.
This 4 member band‘s manifesto is simple: synchronic-four-chord space rock layered with electronic undertones, hyperactive rhythms and a yardsale-army of whizzy old analog synths. Industrial? Naw, not really. Punk? Maybe a little. “Electro-alterna-synthpunk” was a recent description of the band’
