Terminal Cheesecake

Profile:
UK band formed in North and East London in 1988, put together by Gary Boniface (formerly of The Purple Things and The Vibes) along with Russell Smith (2) (formerly of A.R. Kane and M/A/R/R/S), Mick Parkin and John Jobbagy (drummer from the Vibes and Purple Things).
Later the band had a shift in personnel, losing original rhythm section players and drafting in Joe Whitney (drummer) and Gordon Watson (bassist), who had played occasionally with the band up to this point anyway. Furthering the direction towards an all out dub-reggae sound, TC disbanded in 1994 and Watson and Boniface reappeared along with collaborator Papa Newman in new group Bud Alzir.

The band officially re-formed in 2013 with new members Neil "the fish" Francis and Dave Cochrane .

One of the most unsung and (of course) underrated noise-rock bands of all time. Sonic shitstorm exemplary.

Terminal Cheesecake were Britain's answer to the Butthole Surfers, only with more solid footing in beats and a more definite leaning towards sludge/grind than Gibby and company. Closely tied with the burgeoning UK dirge scene, a la Godflesh, Head Of David, Loop, they were the acid-casualty-friendly group of the bunch. But not so much so. The music at once reminds you that not only do the fellows like beats, they also like the mind-crushing drone and ambiance that is requisite for the UK scene at the time. Did I mention that their albums and CDs are too pricey for the casual collector like myself?
