Strap The Button

In a world of contrived oddness, Strap The Button are a collection of genuinely unusual, unique talents…

Strap the Button are a collective centred around Llanfilyn, Powys but now spread across England and Wales (from Scarborough to Bristol).

Strap the Button contain in their ranks a former UK junior chess champion, a number of philosophy students and a postman.

Strap the Button know how to count to seven.

Strap the Button make instrumental guitar music without ever falling into post-rock clich├ęs. They’ve probably never even heard of Mogwai.

Strap the Button’s live show is utterly thrilling, despite the fact that band members never know which other band members will turn up for the show. One day none of them will turn up and they’ll have to do some John Cage covers.

Strap the Button’s members also play/have played under the monikers el heath, Call it a Clunes,Designer Babies, The Good Anna, The Exploits of Elaine, Omatic, Sweet Potato, Port Elizabeth, Robert Redford for Bedford, The Scaly Hand and God knows who else.

Strap the Button have female drummer.

(All the best bands have a female drummer).

Going to Jib Choons (Choons for Going to Jib Like Innit)

As one FBI agent might have it: That’s a damn fine cup of experimental oddness. Labyrinthine minimalism, mind-bending apocalyptic space rock, Lynchian jazz, musique concrete, Wickerman folk and the darkness from the hearts of beasts and machines.

Strap explore the edges, the limits and the outlines in a record that is by turns dreamy noise, deconstructed post-rock, slow-burning kraut, sublime improv pop, frenzied prog and galloping white noise psych.
