Mouthus+Axolotl @ No Fun Fest - The Hook - Brooklyn, May 18th, 2007


One of the best bands of a stellar second night at the No Fun Fest, Mouthus+Axolotl is actually a collaboration of two talented noise heads. Before going on, they all passed around the peace pipe just off stage, so that you knew it was going to be one of those kinds of noise sets. They started off pretty quiet and ambient, but really built up their noise in layers so that there was this huge wall of sound by the end, which was great. If electronic drums, circuit bent keyboards, guitars that sound like basses, and noise-effected violins are your thing, you might like this band... actually, you'll probably like them regardless, if you are stoned.
