Rotterdam-based band Tommy Moustache and Sheep Got Waxed from Lithuania zap through extremely diverse genres in an explosive new collaboration.

The admiration was mutual when Tommy Moustache and Sheep Got Waxed crossed paths at a festival in Denmark. Shortly after that these eccentric and unpredictable bands decided to join forced on stage, resulting in an explosive and inflammable combination of two drummers, two guitarists, two sax players, a bassist and a huge stack of electronics.

The music Tommy Moustache has been described by critics as propulsive, mildly schizophrenic and heavily confusing alternative zap jazz. Sheep Got Waxed conjured similar unique descriptions, including ‘a mix of techno, footwork, Death Grips kind of trap and George Michael played by early Beatles. But the music also contains free jazz and metal influences according to the band members.
