Taser Puppets, live at Minefest, Miners Community Arts and Music Centre, Moston, Manchester, UK, 24/05/2015.

Formed in 2008, Taser Puppets are a big four-piece ball of loveliness, noise, melody and contradictions. Vocal-driven music laced with dark humour, like an evil ‘Treat’ or ‘Minstrel’, depending which chocolate generation you come from.

Having played most of the North’s top venues supporting the likes of The Primitives, Yeah Yeah No’s, Bez (Happy Mondays), Interrobang (Chumbawamba) and Tom Hingley (Inspiral Carpets) to name just a few, more high profile gigs are on the way.

Mike Leigh (former drummer with The Fall) chose the Tasers’ ‘Beautiful Song for the Ripper’ as one of his favourite tracks when being interviewed on Salford City Radio, saying “the Ripper is as good as any song written by anyone at any time!

So with regular national and international radio airplay, plus slots booked at various festivals, 2015 is looking good.

Shaun Ali Bongo – Vocals + Guitar
Bob on Bass – Bass
Terry – Drums + Vocals
Mark Flute – Flute
