Made up of Robin Silas Christian (drums), John Arthur Webb (guitar & vocals) and Kevin Hendrick (bass and vocals), and rising from a flourishing DIY scene in their adopted hometown of Dalston, London, Male Bonding became a very real thing in May, 2008, with their first show, at an insane house party called “RAGE!”
Male Bonding was born raging and it’s been non-stop ever since. That party evolved in to a split 7” release with PENS on Male Bonding’s own label Paradise Vendors Inc. (which sold out in a week). To date, Male Bonding has dispatched seven releases including a Flipper tribute 7” (on Domino Records) alongside PPM Allstars, Lovvers and Ponytail. The band has toured the UK with Brooklyn’s Vivian Girls and played shows with Lovvers, HEALTH, Fucked Up, Graffiti Island, Mika Miko, These are Powers, NISENNENMONDAI, Magik Markers, and Finally Punk among others
KUTOSIS release their debut album ‘Fanatical Love’ this November on Barely Regal Records.
The Cardiff three piece took just 6 days to record, mix and master the album with Rory Attwell, known for his recent work with Male Bonding, Yuck, Fair Ohs and Veronica Falls to name but a few.
'Fanatical love' sees the trio not only hone their craft but really push the boundaries of their multifaceted sound - from the infectious, guitar-driven hooks of 'Shadows' to the hypnotic electronic rhythms of 'Battle Lake'.
Not content with just experimenting musically, the release heralds the start of an ambitious video project working with 10 film-makers, each of which making a video for one of the tracks on the album for a special one off screening at Cardiff’s Chapter Arts Centre.
