Spider & the Flies - Something Clockwork This Way Comes - 2009
So, how do you describe Spider & the Flies? Well, honestly it's only two guys. Two members from the Goth group The Horrors from Southend-On-Sea named Tomethy Furse and Rhys "Spider" Webb. Having been a huge fan of the Horrors and learning that these two were making music using a variety of analog synths and records from the BBC Sound Library.
The music is cold, alien, sci-fi and strange. It borders on being Drone, but there's enough variety in it to keep it from totally going off the deep end. Regardless, it's a tough listen to get all the way through. I mean, I like it as a side project to the Horrors. As it stands by itself, meh. I really am drawn to it, though, as these guys are just so strange. And I like it.
