RUBBER OH – ” Strange Craft “

Posted: June 2, 2022 in MUSIC

Known as the guitarist with Newcastle heavy metal godheads Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs, as well as acting as their producer, Sam Grant launches a solo career as Rubber Oh that explores different tangents of that sound. ‘Strange Craft’ is pitched somewhere between the over revved guitars of Pigs x7 and Seventies science-fiction soundtracks – the droning analogue synths and fuzzed-out haze of ‘Little Demon’ exemplify the approach perfectly.

Inspiration can strike anyone at any time, and more often than not from somewhat peculiar quarters. Rarely more so than when Sam Grant – thus far best known as guitarist and producer of Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs – finally set about work on a solo project that had been pursuing him for some years. “It’s easier to describe it materialistically than by any other way.” he reasons “I want people to imagine that feeling of rubber – its physical memory, the unnatural vibe of it. It’s so tactile but alien, but also difficult not to know. It’s an odd analogy, but that’s what this music is for me.”
