MIEN

£18.00

MIEN are the exciting new band comprised of The Black Angels' Alex Maas, The Horrors' Tom Furse, Elephant Stone's Rishi Dhir & The Earlies' John-Mark Lapham. The seeds were sown for this collaboration in 2004, when Dhir found himself in a chance encounter with Maas whilst performing sitar with his former band on a bill at SXSW in Austin with The Brian Jonestown Massacre. He would also stumble across electronics guru & producer Lapham, via a shared love for one song – the 'classic sitar banger' by The Association, Wantin' Ain't Gettin. Some years later, another piece of the puzzle came into place, when Dhir was now playing bass with The Black Angels in 2012, and found the band sharing several bills with The Horrors. Thus he made the acquaintance of Furse. The result, as John Mark puts it, was 'imagine the Black Angels as Nico in her 80's industrial phase mixed with George Harrison and Conny Plank.
