BIO..

A couple of years ago, Scott wild and Matt tate got signed as teenagers, went on tour, played some rock music then decided to call time on young debauchery. You`ve seen it all before right? Then they took some time off, doing a little bit of this, bit of that, dabbled in electronic music, wall collages and mushrooms.

 

Now at 23 and 24 Its pretty simple, in two years they’ve`ve built up a studio up for themselves been in there day and night, and came to the conclusion that they just like playing rock n roll music. From surf re-verbs to the dirtiest crunch you can get, they love it. From Jon Spencer to the king himself, dick dale to The kills and Iggy pop to Fugazi, they take influence from all genres of music. So what did they do? they put a new band together, called it Xeno(Translation: Latin for stranger) Brought there www.cornwallmusic.co.uk buddy Joe in whos main goal in life is to out riff the surf-kings, and laid down one rule, to enjoy every waking minute of writing, producing, playing and getting shitfaced on tequila to wind down The songwriting is based loosely around Xeno being the name of  a fictional noir character and her induced delusional disorders which contain heartbreak, revenge,murder,catsuits,tequila and all that other cool shit we crave to hear about.

 

With the DIY approach of ” if you don’t know how to do it boy, learn how to do it” method Scott and Matt have learnt an assortment of music and video programs aswell as instruments , inlcuding drums,bass, piano,synths, tambourine ( which Scott is very proud of) and an array of smaller instruments such as the triangle and its fellow percussion box lodgers, though the egg shaker still eludes them.

 

They don’t stop there, if its trashy 60s pulp art, 1950s memorabilia,hair pomade and long debates about how Link wray can stand wearing leather pants in the Californian heat(unsolved mystery)  that floats your boat, they keep there Tumblr site updated with all things decayed, creating a digital montage of the past in an ascetically pleasing fashion.

 

So, if you wanna catch a show these guys they dwell on hometown Falmouths beaches (lookin at peaches) and spend most of there days recording , searching for jobs in a jobless town and occasionally drinking more tequila. Hell they like tequila so much they mentioned the cactus juice three times in this bio, and wrote a song about it.
