“Hidden within this monolithic music – which lumbers forth upon legs of doom and tectonic rock ‘n’ roll – is the evidence of rot and mortal unease”
Thanks to the ever excellent ATTN:Magazine and Jack Chuter.

Cheel Ghar, KLLR, Modern Men and Rat the Magnificent all have records in the pipeline, much further down the pipeline than they were a while ago. The ever glorious Bradley Hemsell has been using his hawk-like ears to make them all sound like DESTROYERS.
Brad’s also been on business with some buddies of TTWD the VERY NASTY and BRILLIANT Swallowing, who are on the excellent Outsider Art label. You can pick up their record online, 100% recommended, it will fuck you up.
Rat Le Magnificent and Cheel Ghar have a couple of upcoming shows, LIVE LIVE LIVE. Cheel Ghar are making it up north (to Sheffield). Something to behold in the flesh. Find out more on our EVENTS page.
KLLR have the tiniest of teasers available online.
We’ve been given a gift: a record of the live set from Street Thunder at last week’s Outsider Art show. Outsider Art put on some great shows, and put out some great records so look them up.
This is some devastatingly lush amp worship for your delectation. Please enjoy.
Two little treats from Cheel Ghar. Recorded live in Dorset, May 2015.
Filmed by Ken Davis. Thanks Ken.
Cheel Ghar & Rat the Magnificent were invited to play at The Nepalese Temple Ball’s album launch party, alongside Nep and Strank on Saturday.
Cheel Ghar represented themselves well, including a guest spot for Dan on stage with NTB.
We raised £85 for Sense, which makes a fun night worthwhile.
Rat the Magnificent have also been back in the studio with Brad Hemsell fiddling around with noises. The record is happening…
& we have set up a list, to which you can subscribe, so that we can tell you when our bands are playing shows, when we’ve made new tunes, when we’ve got cheap tickets, and all that handy stuff. SIGN YOURSELVES UP!
The TTWD family were out in force last week in Bournemouth. We were very happy to share the stage with our own Rat the Magnificent & Cheel Ghar, and be joined by the force of nature that are our Belgian friends Black Swarm, and also the fucking incredible Art of Burning Water.
Thanks to everyone who came down, apologies if you had to talk to any of us after the second bottle of whisky had been cracked open.
