Thomas Truax

THURSDAY 24TH OCTOBER 2019

Doors 7.30pm - 11.00pm

£9.00

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
“He still knows how to pull together albums of real beauty...his duet
with Gemma Ray is worth the admission price alone.” -Buzz
Magazine
"Enthralling, mind-blowingly original and totally bonkers... a creative
circus of the wonderfully surreal."
- Brighton Noise
