Creep Show brings together John Grant with the dark analogue electro of Wrangler (Stephen Mallinder/Phil Winter/Benge). According to Mallinder the band “sprang fully formed a couple of years ago but in truth had been bubbling away for decades in a petri dish containing spores of seventies sci-fi, post–punk electronic music, bad taste, broken synthesizers, luscious film soundtracks, and dubious band t-shirts.”
Debut album “Mr Dynamite” was voted 2018 Album Of The Year by Electronic Sound Magazine, and was recorded in Cornwall with a lifetime’s collection of drum machines and synthesisers assembled by Benge and explored by every member of Creep Show. There’s a real sense of freedom in the shackles-off grooves, channeling the early pioneering spirit of the Sugarhill Gang through wires and random electric noise.
‘Dazzling . . . Mr Dynamite combines something genuinely sinister with a sense of fun, and far from being a whimsical side project for its members, it can be regarded as a landmark release for all of them.’ The Quietus
‘A full-blown, fun and fearless blast of analogue synthesis.' Album Of The Week, The i Paper
