PRESENTING "We Raided Scott Norman's Computer Pt.1" (JASP002), the long awaited second EP by brummie crime men The Man At The Lamp Post! The Man himself is actually four people, Scott Norman on vocals, Brent Wesley on keyboard and guitar, Amir Hussein on drums, cornet and bath salts and lastly Alan (DJ Cum) Bond, on homemade synth, Audacity, spraycan jazz and "a gully".
Formed in 2009, The Man At The Lamp Post struggled with direction for a long time. Initially dabbling in stoner rock and fidget house, The Man found direction in 2013 after a fateful trip to Thailand that resulted in Alan Bond becoming soaked in elephant cum. This event was seen by the band as vision sent by Christ, and they knew that their future lay in experimental noise music.
Their first EP, "Sleeping Under The Magic Screwdriver" (2014) was a harrowing and emotional experience that invoked images of addiction, poverty and stomach problems. "We Raided" continues to push the envelope in dark sound design, but injects a playful twist, with some tracks really bringing together the feeling of friendship felt between the four members. The sonic landscapes within "We Raided" are as rich as they have ever been, and the complex, progressive song writing techniques used make this one an instant classic.
