about

Based in Crystal Palace, London, UK, Metamono are musicians Paul Conboy and Jono Podmore (also known as Kumo, the name with which he works with Can's Irmin Schmidt), and artist Mark Hill. All of them have built or preserved their own instruments, soldering together latterday mechanical mutations from equipment too prematurely discarded by capitalism's hellbent tendency towards planned obsolescence.

And now, their debut album, their most fully realised and advanced recording to date, a double vinyl release, a showcase of Metamono's philosophy, physical and emotional range and immense capabilities. Each of its four sides are practically colour-coded, each expressing a facet of the group's work and highly characterful character.

So, Side One, captures the group's cosmically playful effervescence, as if they heard the new worlds Joe Meek captured as far back as 1960 and refused to let them pass them by. Side Two, however, reveals a less familiar, less blistering, more introspective and chilled aspect of Metamono, a more than pleasant surprise for their old fans. Side Three and we get a dose of acid Metamono, even if the group have mastered the art of persuading crowds to dance itchily to banging tunes with asymmetric time signatures. Finally, Side Four, in which Metamono reach to the outer limits of their capacity, the far side.

You hear new worlds, calling you. It's the smiling, sublime sound of Metamono, the sound of yestermorrow, today.

"…we couldn't have been more entertained. Well, we could, but it would have probably required pharmaceuticals and choreographed dancing chihuahuas."

"There’s a book titled The Uses of the Past by one Herbert J. Muller, which I called to mind when I listened to this new Metamono music: The past is there to be taken apart, inspected, melted down and sprayed all over the future."

"With The Compliments Of Nuclear Physics is frighteningly original."

about

Metamono London, UK

METAMONO was formed in 2010 by 2 musicians and a fine artist on the search for new horizons. The idea: to create analogue electronic music in strict adherence to a manifesto - a set of rules which on one hand would restrict their options but on the other would liberate our creativity and force them to engage in new methods. The manifesto was agreed upon. ... more
