Wrangler are: Stephen Mallinder (Cabaret Voltaire), Benge (The Maths), Phil Winter (Tunng/Lone Taxidermist)
Wrangler consists of Stephen Mallinder, best known for his pioneering work with Cabaret Voltaire, Phil Winter of Tunng and Lone Taxidermist, plus the founder of Memetune studios and synth obsessive Benge (John Foxx And The Maths). His studio’s synth-rammed walls have created an environment where sounds are ripped from a golden era of analogue electronic music to create forward-looking, new music.Wrangler formed in the wires of Memetune – a post-LCD, Factory Floor-ed electronic funk machine with VHS tape distortion in its eyes but also capable of sleekness and beauty in the stripped back beats.
With support from Coventry band Attrition. Formed by Martin Bowes and Julia Waller, influenced by a mix of punk ideology and experimental art aesthetics, they emerged as part of the early ’80’s UK Industrial scene. Unexplored sonic landscapes with an eclectic marriage of experimental and traditional sound, of electronics and acoustics, of male and female.
