Tupper Werewolf

Flavour Country EP (TW)

By • Mar 6th, 2020 • Category: Single review

Glasgow-based Gordon Barr is behind this bizarre moniker, and this is his new EP.

It starts with ‘Mouths’, which sounds like a cross between Aidan Moffat and M83, actually no bad thing, with a high bpm and chittering synths while Tupper recalls some memories of past madnesses.

‘All Sorts’ continues the spoken word with a meditation on love, with references to “the basement at Nice ‘n’ Sleazy’s” and the stirrings of passion on an ordinary Glasgow day… The tracks mutates into some extreme techno and shouting – great!

‘Pianohammer’ has minimal techno beats, somewhat out of tune piano, quite painful in fact…then it doubles the speed – not for the faint-hearted.

And then there is ‘You Can Do It’ which again takes a riff, speeds it up and sounds this time more like Blanck Mass in the synth wash, but also reminds BM of some mid-noughties guys like Kid Carpet and Kid Spatula (if memory serves…).

A very interesting and varied release, if not for some, and BM will seek Mr Werewolf out if he ever comes out of his lair to play live…
