Barbed are Alex and Alex previously responsible for the ‘plunderphonic’ classic ‘Barbed’ released on the legendary Recommended label way back in 1994.

Veterans of stupidly long concerts with the likes of Negativland, People Like Us and the Tape Beatles, they went on to join an embryonic Add N to X, provide the soundtrack for Joram ten Brink’s arthouse classic ‘The Man Who Couldn’t Feel’ and supply material for numerous compilations, live records & remixes.

But yet all the time they yearned to make a different kind of music, one that was at the same time familiar and yet alien, pop fluff with hidden spikes…barbed as it were.
