The Cubical sound is one that is essentially based in 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 show is an assault on the senses; not only can you not take your eyes off the chaos and dancing of the 6 foot five Wilson (a captivating performer and sensational lyricist) , indefatigable Gavaghan and charismatic hardman Green but the interwoven Telecaster twang, wailing harmonica, incessant pounding bass and drums an all topped off by one of the gruffest and most distinctive blues howls since the wolf himself, ensures that you can’t help but be drawn into the hypnotic swamp blues intensity.
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 and their highly anticipated follow up "It Ain't Human" (Oct. 2011).
But that's not all: "Arise Conglomerate" camoe out in 2012 and "Live in Oslo" was released in 2013).
The Cubical have toured all over the world - USA, Australia, Germany, Norway, France, Spain, Ireland, Holland, Czech Republic ...playing alongside the likes of Bob Dylan, Kiss, The Black Lips, Blondie, Chris Issak and The Magic Band to name but a few.
Breaking news: New album "Blood Moon" out in may 2017
"Wilson makes Waits sound like Tiny Tim" (The Guardian)
"Imagine if Captain Beefheart was fronting The Doors, and they were a psyche garage band? With an extraordinary dip into black and white Cash/Cave territory, this could be a party being thrown by the coolest hot-rod-lovin', corn-fed dame-shaggin' son of a gun known to man! A Great find. 4/5 " (MAG-Australia)
'A trembling and yet raucous collection of songs... Think Tom Waits mixed with Detroit Cobras into the heady cocktail. Lovely stuff.' 4/5-
(Big Cheese Mag )
"one of the coolest things of the year ” "fuckin' mega! " Noel Gallagher
"Much of the charm of, and pleasure to be gleaned from, the Cubical is that hearing their music is like stumbling across some dusty long-lost recordings of forgotten voodoo rockers, while seeing them live is apparently like being sent back to the 60s to witness the Doors at Whisky A Go-Go or the Stones at the Flamingo...Superbly "realistic", authentically 60s-sounding blues-wailing and jungle boogie with lashings of harmonica and psychedelic guitar."
“If the world were a better place, The Cubical would have number 1 hits all the way. Genius!”
"The Cubical are simply not your average band."
