“bailey’s guitar symphony… with a name like that it would be brilliant even if it wasn’t. but it is, so there” – drowned in sound

‘the most fun I’ve had having my ears burnt since Swans’ – Andy Field
THIS MACHINE WON’T KILL FASCISTS BUT IT MIGHT GET YOU LAID is a series of compositions for and about the electric guitar. Extreme and exploratory, THIS MACHINE is equal parts punk rock and modern classical. Klanging metallic textures, insistent overtones and grinding repetitions performed in sharp suits, at maximum volume.
current lineup: george percy (fender telecaster), alicia jane turner (fender jag), nicolas heiso kort (les paul), christopher brett bailey (legend strat copy).
