!!! Vocalist/ Percussionist Quits

From NME:

"!!!'s vocalist and percussionist John Pugh has left the band.

Pugh has been absent from the group during their summer appearances.

He told 'Alternative Press' magazine that he left the band to pursue creating manic background music for ensuing debauchery" with his band Free Blood."

Apparently the 'manic background music' in question involves taking old records and cutting and scratching them with razor blades and scissors to create textures on the vinyl, which is then played through old school gramophones.

All right then....

***Edit: Informative Anonymous Person has corrected my last observation about cutting up vinyl. Turns out I was mixing up 'Free Blood' with another project of Pugh's that's featured in this nifty little documentary 'Bump, Tick, Scratch'.

Here's a taste of Free Blood. Sounds pretty cool:

The broken record thing is not Free Blood. That was another project.
