COWTSHTF 2 trailer - Full EP for free download from 8th July by COWTSHTF
COWTSHTF are playing T in the Park this year! The Scotsman featured the band yesterday, here’s what they said….
What is the Church of When The Shit Hits the Fan?
Less a church, more a dangerous cult, they say. Or, more accurately, an idiosyncratic hip-hop/electro duo from Edinburgh.
Who is ministering?
Asthmatic Astronaut, or AA, who also records as Kromatic, provides the juddering electro beats. His fellow pastor is rapper/slam poet Harlequinade, or HQ, the 2010 StAnza Slam Champ and member of Scotland’s national Slam Team, who has more imaginative things to rap about than how big his whatever is.
Does the Church have a mission statement?
Indeed. “Lo, a tremendous beat shall render (sic] the sky apart and that beat is crunk. A cipher shall summon forth beasts tentacled and unknowable from that blackened chasm and those words shall be known as hyperbolic rhythmic bouffon.” Bet you’re glad you asked.
Great. Where do I join up?
COWTSHTF welcomes new converts to their flock at its next revival meeting – in a tent on an airfield in Balado. Some festival you might have heard of, with 85,000 potential new adherents.
What are other converts saying?
"A clever melt-down version of 21st-century hip-hop battery Antipop Consortium and the sophisticated spoken-words by Saul Williams" – Netlabelism.com "A virtuoso display, like a jolt of electricity to the head" – The Skinny (on Harlequinade)
