Here Come The Waves
Avant-garage clang and clatter from a UK/Italian duo operating
at the margins of the DIY guitar underground. Heavy tape
manipulation and random noises rub up against primitive song
structures and repetitive melodies.
“Don’t look now, but this Midnight Mines lp, ‘Since My Baby Left
Me’ deftly constructs a ghoulish, aural hellscape as dazzling as it
is devilish. Flickers of Richard Earl’s ‘The Egg Store Ilk’ and
Esplendor Geometrico’s ‘Eg1’ ferociously stalk the parameters,
pushing a crescendo that ultimately detonates like a chain fight
between ‘Parable Of Arable Land’ vs ‘Metal Machine Music’.
Hear what it means to open up & bleed.”
Tim Bucktoo, The Fiddletown Penny-Saver Gazette
"Dark mod thump, fuzz wallop and heavy kraut rumble, with
the makeup of the surrounding material recalling other UK
brainiacs like THE REBEL and the most industrial aspects of THE
FALL. Highly recommended."
Mitch Cardwell, Maximum Rock & Roll
