The Victorian English Gentlemens Club are an aggravated three-piece band making underground pop racket in the pop underground racket of Cardiff.
They get pleasure from building cold-hearted, bass-heavy music with hard edges and brutality with all of their drums, lungs, hearts and guitars. They also use an electric mandolin, an Indian shruti harmonium, a self-made bow-screamo (wire nailed to wood and played with a bow), sparrows and a church bell hit with a hammer. They listen to Liars, Grinderman, '154' by Wire, Deerhoof, Cardiacs and 'Flowers of Romance' by PiL, but have an affinity with the three-minute pop song.
TVEGC were first born when Adam Taylor and Louise Mason met at art college in Cardiff. Using their combined interest in art and experimental guitar music they began writing music solely influenced by The Velvet Underground and Sonic Youth.
