There are at least three groups with the name Lump. 1. One is from the hideously cold north of Finland. Not to be confused with a certain gentleman with releases on Switzerland's Mental Groove. He’s submerged in a mysterious dub dimension where nothing really is what it seems to be - or rather sounds to be. His music is full of tiny textures and sounds that together form the quirky sounds of Lump. Tracks are mixed live with a 16 track mixer before final mix on a computer. Many elements are played live without sequencing - this adds an organic dubby warmth to his music. He is always working on new ways to fool his own ears. Lump's daily experimentation with animation, somehow extends to his music. Lump often begins with a Basic Channel template - then turning everything upside down, and one ends up with a unique, quicky and damn right infectious piece of sheer brilliance. 2. Lump do not like to be described...but if forced to describe their music, it would be safe to say that Lump are equal parts rock and funk with a whole bunch of other styles all lumped together. Could that be the story behind the band's name? Who knows. All that is evident is that Lump themselves don't like to be described. See for yourself on Lump's website where they refer to themselves as sounding like Gang of Four and The Meters break dancing with Rip Taylor during a nursing home fire drill! Consisting of: Leo Thevenot - guitar, vocals A.P. Gonzalez - drums Michael Joseph - bass, trumpet, toy plane, trombone, vocals Ben Ellman - tenor & baritone sax, vocals 3. The other is from Australia, and play a brand of hard rock similar in nature to Alice in Chains, Sevendaust, AC/DC, and others.
