We’re excited to be helping Los Trasgos Muertos launch their self-titled EP.


From Manchester, Los Trasgos Muertos are Captain Reed (bass/vocals/organ), Von Beek (guitar/vocals) and El Fliesh (drums).

Prior to forming the band, all three members spent time honing their musicianship and songwriting skills with other bands on the vibrant Manchester music scene. As a result they have known each other for years, sharing similar passions and frustrations, influences and experiences. Writing came easily and before the trio knew it, they had an album’s worth of material ready to record at Eve Studios in Bredbury, one of Manchester’s best kept secrets.

Los Trasgos Muertos are influenced by a range of musicians from Billy Childish and Deep Purple to Ty Segall, The Beatles and Prince. This eclecticism inspired them to find their own sense of individuality; they strive to produce records with a strong melody and hook, substance over style, but it’s important to them that each track captures their sense of fun too.

Captain Reed (Bass/Vox/Organ) describes their sound as ‘loud music for bodies in small hot sweaty rooms – this is physical music’.

Support comes from Barbados Slim and H!M regular Elle Mary and The Bad Men.
