Biography

A collaboration between sardonic singer/songwriter John Grant and electro supergroup Wrangler, Creep Show make witty, mischievous music that subverts funk, techno, and pop. Grant met the men of Wrangler -- former Cabaret Voltaire frontman Stephen Mallinder, Tuung's Phillip Winter, and Ben "Benge" Edwards -- at the 2014 Sensoria Festival in Sheffield, England. They hit it off and stayed in touch, first working together in 2016 on a remix of "Voodoo Doll," a single from Grant's 2015 album, Grey Tickles, Black Pressure. That October, they also collaborated on a set of new material for a concert at London's Barbican Theatre celebrating the indie record store chain Rough Trade's 40th anniversary. The group -- whose name comes from an art exhibit that Edwards saw in a dream -- recorded its debut album at Edwards' home studio in Cornwall, taking full advantage of his wide array of analog synths and the members' shared fondness for film soundtracks and post-punk. The results were Mr. Dynamite, which Bella Union released in March 2018. ~ Heather Phares
