Red Factory Tonight: Unknown Mortal Orchestra

20 Nov
Unknown Mortal Orchestra

Unknown Mortal Orchestra

The band, consisting of ‘a reputedly reluctant to become prominent musician’, singer/guitarist Ruben Nielson (former member of the Mint Chicks), bassist; Jake Portrait and drummer Riley Geare – the names themselves sweat rock-stardom.

The Unknown Now Known

Ruben Nielson released “Ffunny Friends” on the online record store Bandcamp in 2010 without any claim to the song – no mention of its composer. After much ado from keen bloggers raving about it and trying to find out who it’s owner was, Nielson eventually claimed it the work of UMO. The rest is now known.

If to be described – I’d say they’re a kind of psychedelic-poppig-retroesque-mash. And if you’re around in the region of the Red Factory, Zurich tonight, go see them – you won’t regret it. http://www.rotefabrik.ch/de/home/

Here’s an amuse bouche to get your taste buds activated.
