The Cubical

The Cubical

Powered by Audioscrobbler™The Cubical are based in Liverpool and have spent the last few years building up an amazing reputation as one of Europe's best live bands and have an ever growing cult following. The Cubical sound is one that is essentially based in the blues, but like Captain Beefheart, Zappa and Tom Waits before them they twist it around and shake it up and inevitably end up with something alto...gether a little weirder. A Cubical live show has been likened to a “rock n roll medicine show,” an assault on the senses. Not only are your eyes glued to the chaotic dancing of the 6 foot five Wilson, indefatigable Gavaghan and charismatic hard man Green but the interwoven Telecaster twang, wailing harmonica, incessant pounding bass and drums, are all topped off by one of the gruffest and most distinctive blues howls since the Wolf himself. All of this ensures that audiences are drawn into the hypnotic swamp blues intensity that is so central to The Cubical experience. Front man Dan Wilson is a captivating and natural performer and surely one of the more interesting lyricists around today. Their debut album Come Sing These Crippled Tunes was recorded at Sunset Sound Studio, Hollywood and produced by the Grammy award winning Dave Sardy (Oasis, Johnny Cash, Primal Scream, Marilyn Manson), an early admirer of the band. The album was lapped up by the critics (see press below) and their highly anticipated follow up It Ain't Human is out in October 2011 on Halfpenny Records / Cargo / Grabaciones de Impacto in the UK/EU, Fuse in Australia and Record Collection in The US . The Cubical have toured all over the world taking in the USA, Australia, Germany, Norway, France, Spain, Ireland, Holland, Czech Republic along the way playing alongside the likes of Bob Dylan, Kiss, The Black Lips, Blondie, Chris Isaak and The Magic Band to name but a few. Catch The Cubical in a town near you soon, you won’t be disappointed.
