Ben Butler & Mousepad

Ben Butler & Mousepad’s music is a hybrid of old and new that celebrates the UK wonky-pop culture influenced by the sound of the urban London bass scene, adds a bit of old prog-rock musicianship in the vein of Magma and Goblin, throws in some good-ol’ funkadelic grooves and wraps it all up with the sound of the new Scandic Skweee craze. And some synth-heavy Yellow Magic Orchestra thrown in the mix.

Ben Butler & Mousepad is the brainchild of musician and producer Joe Howe, formerly of Glasgow-based digital noiseniks Gay Against You.

During an extended period living in the vibrant musical community of Berlin, Ben Butler & Mousepad developed into a two-man band alongside with the German grindcore drummer Bastian Hagedorn.

 

‘Welcome a new ‘lectric sorcerer on the block….Ben Butler and mouse pad with a soundtrack to a bad mother of a party with Rocky Balboa, Bootsy Collins and Triumvirat headlining. Step in, this is a blast.’ 20XJFG
