The new look Archie Bronson Outfit are an English duo composed of Arp Cleveland and S Windett, who specialise in raw-to-the-bone psychedelic garage music, which recalls everyone from Son House to Faust, Wire and Hawkwind. They are typically joined live by electronics wizard Capitol K. They play in a minimalistic style, with a pulsing, propolsive beat; their driving rhythms a moody locomotive to which thick and distorted guitar lines hitch themselves. Their songs are often compact manouevres; concise and fat free. They are both loose and tight, raggedy and disciplined. ABO's songs are contrary country howls.
To date they have released 3 albums on Domino Records; 'FUR' (2004) , 'Derdang Derdang' (2006) & 'Coconut' (2010). 'Derdang Derdang' (produced by Jacquire King, Tom Waits, Kings of Leon, Modest Mouse) won plaudits all over including a South Bank Award in the UK, while its follow up 'Coconut' (produced by DFA's Tim Goldsworthy, Massive Attack, The Rapture, Hercules & Love Affair) edged them into more electronic 'scapes. A 4th LP is apparently imminent.
