For fans of Fugazi, Gang of Four and Sauna Youth. Tense Men is a project mainly based around repetition and restraint. Consisting of Cold Pumas guitarist / vocalist Oliver Fisher, Sauna Youth's singer / drummer Richard Phoenix, and Omi Palone's Liam O'Neill. Looped, claustrophobic surges of brittle guitar and shocked drum beats tack up to create a sound larger than the sum of it's parts. The band started playing in 2011 as a two-piece (consisting of Fisher and Phoenix) using drums, guitar and a loop pedal, they recorded a tape and played a bunch of shows. The duo recorded 'Where Dull Care Is Forgotten' with this line-up, then killed the loop and Liam joined as a real life bass player.
