Live from the Window at Whelan’s
– PLAY THE FRONT BAR –
11pm – FREE ENTRY
Hailing from the Michigan township of Kalamazoo (yes, there really is such a place), the past decade has seen M.SORD becoming renowned for a mind-blowing, skullet-forming mélange of vintage synth interplay and furious yet intricate tentacle-esque live drumming.
Over the past few years, SORD has shared the stage with scene luminaries such as Don Caballero, Melt Banana, Tristreza, The Fucking Champs, Zombi and Hella. He was also invited to perform at ‘88 Boadrum’ – a jamboree of the world’s finest drummers, curated by Japanese noise-rock legends Boredoms.
In his downtime, Mike has even managed to squeeze in a few extra-curricular stints drumming for Death in Vegas, The Kills and Ben Chasny’s 200 Years.
His records, ‘Rick McMann’, ‘M. Gard’ and ‘M.Sord’, are available from msord.bandcamp.com
Watch the video for ‘Talk It Over With Your Manager’, made during the band’s last visit to Ireland:
