Hailing from the notorious 4800, the Herrmutt Lobby is composed of “nerds extraordinaire” Kadah Vresky, Rawakari and Back & Forth and whoever else happens to drop by also. Separately they’ve already delivered several releases. Rawakari released his debut EP on Elf Cut in 2001, followed by releases on various compilations (Finesouris, Thin Consolation, Panoptic, On). Kadah Vresky released their debut LP on DUB in 2002, and supplied tracks for compilations on MAS, !K7, DUB, EU, Cyvik and On. Members of the romantically inclined Fistfucking Crew (whose debut LP leaves nasty stains under the nails). Back & Forth, after acquiring a reputation for their live performances, have recently finished a first EP, as yet unreleased. Guest sound supplier, Jean Mix was recently elected Vervier’s Mister Commodore 64.
Voluntarily sequestered in the Merlin HQ (and other dubious locations of ill repute), for days on end, without any contact with the outside world or so much as the time of day, Hermutt Lobby are essentially these massive electronic jam sessions, selected, filtered and arranged for your optimal listening pleasure. The next step is to take these sounds out of the comforting environment of smoky, dim light bedrooms, and into the spotlight, onto the stage, in front of an audience.
They drink their coffee black, short, no sugar.
