Local duo Featherteeth are added to the bill for the Heptonstall festival this year, bringing their unique blend of avant-garde psychedelic rock to the festival line-up.
Brothers, Daz and Rew Brown, began playing in bands together in the early 90s starting with Heywood based death metal band Eternal Fear. Then, with a change in direction, towards avant-garde psychedelic rock, went on to be in another four bands together; Mr Lucky Bags, who experimented with tape loops and samples, ambient wild-track and found sounds along with guitar, vocals, bass and drums. Phorm, who were a Bristol based three piece consisting of guitar, vocals, bass and drums. Egg Tent, which included flute and saxophone. As well as Cookie Cutter who incorporated an electronic/dance element. One thing which remained consistent throughout each incarnation of the band was the unique sound that the Brown brothers had been constantly developing over twenty years. So when Cookie Cutter split up, the decision was made to continue as a two piece utilising and experimenting with looping and guitar synth technology, and Featherteeth was born.
