Self confessed “Nubian party punk” band Melt Yourself Down play The Rainbow this Friday in support of the release of their second studio album “Last Evenings On Earth”.
If you want to know what “Nubian party punk” is, then perhaps you’re best off going to the gig, but for now just imagine funk with the energy and confrontation pushed to thrilling new levels, giving the sound an almost hallucinatory edge. We spoke to saxophonist Pete Wareham to find out more.
The reaction to the music was very intense but I wasn’t particularly surprised because the music is intense too.
The sound you lot have is pretty unique. What acts would recommend for those looking for something with a similar vibe to Melt Yourself Down?
I would love to collaborate with Mahmoud Fadl, Salwa Abou Greisha or Alsarah.
If Melt Yourself Down were in a remote studio together and found out that it literally was their last evening on earth, how would it be spent?
Face timing with our relatives and children! And possibly playing very peacefully and quietly.
