a.P.A.t.T. wears white, but the music is colourful.
Hailed as ‘Liverpool’s multi-genre veterans’ (The Skinny), a.P.A.t.T.’s sixth studio album Fun with Music (Pickled Egg, 2016) sees the band condense its vision-quest into 45 minutes of hooky, style-busting material that the BBC’s Stuart Maconie describes as ‘their most accessible yet…in a freaky kinda way’.
a.P.A.t.T.’s dedicated assault on 21st century music expectations comes in a busy international year for the band, which includes the Rock in Opposition festival (FR) alongside Gong and Faust, EU tours in April and September, and a CD release of Fun with Music with Italian record label, AltrOck.
‘Their stretched, compressed and cut-up time signatures are aligned with frothing bass lines, renaissance era organ, harpsichord stabs and jerky fright shouted vocals. On stage they cause gravity to shimmer – seriously, you can see it like a heat haze’. – Get Into This
