Who are Footwork?

This Friday, there's a great show going down at Cairo with Weed, Mega Bog, and Secret Colors that doubles as the Seattle debut of new trio Footwork. Just who are Footwork, anyway?
Footwork is a local trio comprised of Taylor Wingett (Secondary), Myke Pelly (Haunted Horses), and James Scheall (Wet Paint DMM, Half Gift). Their sound is—perhaps unsurprisingly—not unlike a weird, mutant hybrid of Haunted Horses’ grand guignol and Wet Paint DMM’s singularly clanging brutality. The bass and guitar shriek, stab, and throb with the distorted angularity of German Expressionism, and Pelly’s thunderous jungle drumming rolls and rattles throughout the band’s rapidly-shifting song structures with positively tidal force.

We're really looking forward to seeing these guys live. So should you! To RSVP to the event, click here.
