Bark Psychosis

Bark Psychosis

Profile:
Formed 1986, East London (UK).

Despite a relatively small recorded output and little media recognition, Bark Psychosis was one of the most innovative artists of their era. From rather uninspired origins as a teenaged Napalm Death cover band, the British group evolved by leaps and bounds, moving from moody, lush pop to ambient soundscapes to taut, atmospheric experimental music.

The band dissolved shortly after their 1994 album "Hex" was completed, followed by ten years of inactivity. In 2004 Bark Psychosis returned with "The Black Meat", "Codename: Dustsucker" and the EP "400 Winters" in 2005.

Bark Psychosis is one of those bands that will probably stand the test of time. Droning guitars, often melancholic and ethereal male- and female vocals companied by dark lyrical poetry make a soup that's hard to ingore. BP draws from shoegaze, indie rock and experimental sonic wizardy -- without sounding unlike any other band out there. While "Hex" was more guitar driven concept, "Dustsucker" is more experimental, wideranging album covering countless styles, ranging from ambient to weird folk-style tracks.

Bark Psychosis is impossible to categorize, so many areas are covered. If you're a fan of bands like My Bloody Valentine or Slowdive, BP is a must check. They are really in a league of their own.
