David Cronengberg’s Wife
Expect cleverly-crafted songwriting, black humoured lyrics and off-the-wall themes delivered in the band’s characteristically visceral way.
Led by singer, composer, anti-corruption campaigner and 7-fingered guitarist Tom Mayne, DCW’s songs swing between the sweet and the disturbing, with influences ranging from The Birthday Party to Jonathan Richman. The Ship (Necrologies) shows the band at their idiosyncratic best.
‘Bitterly humorous… a mix of 80s Fall and the Velvet Underground’ – NME
