Some of Brum’s finest noisemongers around, MUTES specialise in a particular type of ravenous, ruinous and messy krautrock, unfurling layer upon layer of grungy post-punk with a gloriously headache-inducing intensity. Following a steady stream of experimental EPs, the band are launching their debut album ‘No Desire’ at a one-off COW in-store takeover. MUTES are no strangers to the Brum scene, boasting members of celebrated Black Country filth-peddlers God Damn and the Viv Albertine band – if you’re wondering where good honest-to-god rock music is being made in 2017, look no further than this free show by a scorching local talent, and maybe pick yourself up a copy of this cataclysmic album while you’re at it.
