“From its first breath there is a healthy mix of nostalgia and bold uniqueness about the album’s sound. It is an enticement which is teasingly difficult to pin down but let us give a possible hint by saying the imagining of a fusion of Television Personalities, Subway Sect, and Fad Gadget with maybe the garage instincts of The Clean for further spicing gives a taste of what delights Fountain Of Truth shares.”Ringmaster Album Review – Fountain of Truth
Andreas & The Wolf began DJing as a team on Recharged Radio’s ‘Sound of the Suburbs’ show and then moved onto The Tuesday Club’s – ‘Club Foot’ podcast, but when the this ended in 2015, it seemed the duo’s radio days were over… Before this Andreas & The Wolf had been partners in crime for many many full moons as musicians. In bands: The Scratch, The Dodo, The Bleeed, Reverse Family & The Tuesday Club, (Where these personas were honed).
As 2018 dawned they decided it was time to crank up the turntable and get their own radio show, as a chance to let the world hear their sizeable back catalogue which they have continued to do to this day…On a band footing, after a brief parting when the BWolf left the Tuesday Club they decided to augment the radio show with their own fully fledged ‘Alt Electronica’ duo. Their debut EP release – Fashion Wheel was released in April (2020), with an album Fountain of Truth that soon followed, plus a further single All I want is you. During lockdown the duo decided that once freedom arrived they would like to take the act live and so enlisted fellow Perfect Pop Co legend Dave Beans on guitar and vocalist Tiggy Pop to expand the sound.
The first live show was at The Perfect Pop Co-Op first Annual review party on 15th October 2022. Six months later the band released it’s 2nd album ‘Sci-Fi for your Hi-Fi and followed this in the summer of 2023 with the arrival of former Rogue Sector founder Andrew Trussler on drums.
As 2024 begins the final stages are being put to the bands as yet untitled 3rd album, so watch this space for more info!
