A collaborative project between John Grant and Wrangler (Stephen Mallinder / Phil Winter / Benge), Creep Show blend experimental pop, surreal funk and dark analogue electro.
The group’s debut album Mr Dynamite (2018) was recorded in Cornwall with a lifetime’s collection of drum machines and synthesisers assembled by Benge and explored by every member (including one-time Cabaret Voltaire frontman Stephen Mallinder). Voted 2018 Album Of The Year by Electronic Sound Magazine, the record’s shackles-off grooves channel the early pioneering spirit of the Sugarhill Gang through wires and random electric noise.
Creep Show’s Manchester show was originally meant for Band on the Wall, before overwhelming demand saw the venue change to YES. Don’t sleep on this one, as it’s expected to be a sell-out.
