Something Puffs (Matt Rogers / Benedict Taylor)
The Something Puffs are a band that smashes together punk, prog, improv and classical attitudes to make a music that’s been described as a ‘push and pull between the heart and the head, mess and maze, everything you thought it could be and everything it could be’. In this set a scaled-down Puffs present a chaotic orrery of text and music collaged from the deluge of materials coughed up like a hairball in the process of songwriting.
