Thomas Truax

Plus Support

WEDNESDAY 23RD OCTOBER 2019

Doors 7pm


Merging a fevered imagination and solid songwriting with a mad scientist's brain for weird gadgets, American singer Thomas Truax is a true one-off.

UNCUT magazine says "Truax is shaping up nicely as one of the great rock eccentrics" while Splendid magazine called him "one of the five or ten best singer/songwriters in the world that you've never heard of...an exceptional talent."

His evolving "band" of self-made sound sculptures include a motorized drum machine made of bike wheels called 'Mother Superior' and a souped up Gramophone called 'The Hornicator', but he never leaves his trusty guitar out of the equation too long.

Thomas crafts rich, poetically evocative songs about insects, trees, technology, and a lifelong obsession with things lunar, including various reasons 'Why Dogs Howl at The Moon'. His nine studio LPs include highly-rated covers album 'Songs From The Films Of David Lynch'. Notable supporters and collaborators include Jarvis Cocker, Duke Special, Richard Hawley, The Dresden Dolls, Gemma Ray, Peter Murphy, Bob Log III and the late author Terry Pratchett.

His latest album ‘All that Heaven Allows’ has been garnering national airplay on BBC6 and extremely positive reviews.

"His gigs are extraordinary, fizzing with showmanship." -Q

"When he performs, it is a spectacle - the originality and seeming impossibility of what he does is much of the appeal." -The Guardian

"Enthralling, mind-blowingly original and totally bonkers... a creative circus of the wonderfully surreal." - Brighton Noise
