The electrically charged Neutrinos fused at the turn of the century and became a force to be reckoned with by 2004 when they released Sick Love. This emotive, Paul Sampson (Primitives, Catatonia) produced first album, was voted number 1 album of the year by readers of E-Zone magazine. These former Peel favourites come heavily recommended as a band to catch up close! Taut bluesy garage guitar music fronted by the never less than attention grabbing, audience hooking, incendiary Karen Reilly. They have been likened to a female Nick Cave fronting The Queens of the Stone Age, to a female David Bowie tugging at your eyes, your ears, your organs but they are never less than themselves, never losing identity or direction.
International ambassadors of bluesy garage art-rock, The Neutrinos have played many festivals including Toronto’s 3-day North By North East Festival, Berlin’s British Music Week, Exit Festival (Serbia).
‘The Butcher Of Common Sense’ is the new album by Norwich based The Neutrinos. They took 6 artists (a writer, a film-maker, a sound recordist, a graphic artist and two more musicians: BK+Dad ) with them for a 10-day intensive project in Berlin in a defunct DDR radio station, Funkhaus Nalepestrassse. The idea was to become immersed in the surroundings and create an album which would take its inspiration from this extraordinary space and from the atmosphere and history of Berlin. Four years in the making, the project has challenged their ideas of making music, being in a band and just about everything else!
An album. A vinyl. An artbook. A performance. An exhibition.
What others are saying….
“The Neutrinos continue to push the boundaries of how live music can be received, enjoyed and experienced. The show at the Undercroft illustrated why the Neutrino’s continue to be revered amongst their peers. Innovation seems to be a Neutrinos forte. The unplugged wandering trio, seducing and seductive in their powers of persuasion. The fractured light; beautifully framed with thought out considerations for the narrative of the moving images and music. This was no ordinary experience – this is what sets them apart from everyone else out there banging out a 40 minute set under flashing LEDs.”
