The Cubical are based in Liverpool and have spent the last few years building up an amazing reputation as more... one of Europe's best live bands and have an ever growing cult following. The Cubical sound is one that is essentially based in the blues, but like Captain Beefheart, Zappa and Tom Waits before them they twist it around and shake it up and inevitably end up with something altogether a little weirder. A Cubical live performance has been likened to a “rock n roll medicine show,” an assault on the senses. Not only are your eyes glued to the chaotic dancing of the 6 foot five Wilson, indefatigable Gavaghan and charismatic hard man Green but the interwoven Telecaster twang, wailing harmonica, incessant pounding bass and drums, are all topped off by one of the gruffest and most distinctive blues howls since the Wolf himself. All of this ensures that audiences are drawn into the hypnotic swamp blues intensity that is so central to The Cubical experience. Front man Dan Wilson is a captivating and natural performer and surely one of the more interesting lyricists around today. Their debut album Come Sing These Crippled Tunes was recorded at Sunset Sound Studio, Hollywood and produced by the Grammy award winning Dave Sardy (Oasis, Johnny Cash, Primal Scream, Marilyn Manson), an early admirer of the band. The album was lapped up by the critics (see press below) and their highly anticipated follow up It Ain't Human was released in Nov 2011. On its week of release It Ain’t Human was made album of the month in the highly influential Spanish magazine Ruta 66 and the critical response to the album was just as impressive as their debut. Not ones to hang around, the band released their third album in November 2012. The album was recorded in a grand total of 16 hours on reel to reel 4 tracks in Berlin and Liverpool and captures the contrasting sides to The Cubical: Raucous garage, irrepressibly catchy singles, gentle ballads and eerie swamp blues; it’s all in there and it sounds great. Mojo magazine described the lead single, On The Weekend, as “The greatest Liverpudlian confluence of soul and brass beat action since The Teardrop Explodes’ Reward” and in their 4/5 review of the album headed “Beefheartian Scouse Genius” affirmed that “If the world were a better place, The Cubical would have number 1 hits all the way.” The hardworking five piece will be touring their new album throughout Europe during the first half of 2013 (UK, Italy, France, Netherlands, Norway, Denmark, Spain. )
The Cubical have toured all over the world taking in the USA, Australia, Germany, Norway, France, Spain, Ireland, Holland, Czech Republic along the way playing alongside the likes of Bob Dylan, Mark Lanegan, Kiss, The Black Lips, Blondie, Chris Isaak and The Magic Band to name but a few. Catch The Cubical in a town near you soon, you won’t be disappointed.
