Tense Men Where Dull Care is Forgotten Limited Vinyl LP

Tense Men is a project mainly based around repetition and restraint. Consisting of Cold Pumas guitarist/vocalist Oliver Fisher, Sauna Youth's singer/drummer Richard Phoenix, and Omi Palone's Liam O'Neill. Looped, claustrophobic surges of brittle guitar and shocked drum beats tack up to create a sound larger than the sum of it's parts. The band started playing in 2011 as a two-piece (consisting of Fisher and Phoenix) using drums, guitar and a loop pedal, they recorded a tape and played a bunch of shows. The duo recorded Where Dull Care Is Forgotten with this line-up, then killed the loop and Liam joined as a real life bass player.

“An Oliver Twist Of A Second Helping From Tense Men, offers from this original & intelligent Stick'n'String duo, a melange of Duane Dance¬Hall rhythm, post¬Punk & Scanda shout¬out guitar, with eel¬like bass undertones, & sometime growling vocals, filtered through subtle quasi¬echo sounds to provide a virtual soft¬ride helter skelter that finally & gently hits the velvet mat... Hear It... Appreciate Authenticity..." Papa Fisher 2013

"Tense Men crafts a really bass centered, stripped down, raw, and aggressive post-punk sound of sorts with underlying elements of psych deriving from the overall feeling of the beat. The result: awesomeness."
