The Mechanisms are playing this Friday, June 20th at the O2 Academy in Oxford. If you’re anywhere nearby, you should go.
I SO dig this band. Their albums are all stories, INCREDIBLY AWESOME STORIES, told to you with songs in between the narrative.
I’m going to play you an example of one of those stories. I’m gonna skip the songs for the purpose of this experiment but go get the album and get the entire experience. The thing is, i’m a storyteller. Coming up with cool stories is a central part to what i do and I AM JAW DROPPINGLY AMAZED at the shit they come up with. WHO writes these things? Because they are AWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWEsome. They take myththology and riff the SHIT out of it.
This is from Once Upon A Time In Space. You can buy it here.
