Formed by Alex Bonney, Tim Giles and Matt Groom, Leverton Fox collage together a battery of musical inspiration, from noise and lo-fi electronics to free improvisation and psychedelia with a healthy dose of irreverence.
The group produced their first LP, ‘Country Dances’ for cult underground indie label Gravid Hands, recorded partly in a disused barn in Berkshire as well as a variety of North London’s grungy music rooms.
Since ‘Country Dances’ the group has had a new line up featuring Isambard Khroustaliov from acclaimed electronica duo Icarus in place of Matt Groom. With this new line up they toured the UK supporting the celebrated Norwegian improving duo Humcrush, an experience that catalysed a new direction for the group, as is presented on the albums ‘The Human Arm’ and ‘Smart Casual’.
With their subsequent releases; the album ‘Velcro Bird’, 12″ EP ‘I Am Zebra’ and recent live album ‘Foreign Object Worship – Århus Rites’ Leverton Fox have cemented their reputation for both producing genre defying records and mind bending live performances.
“like the overlap of Faust’s “Krautrock” and Miles Davis’s Pangaea (…) a very singular hybrid”
– The Wire
” An extremely tactile avant-electronica that makes full use of mind-bending stereo production … ranging from squat, stunted machine-funk beats to bubbling, aquatic ambient environments.”
” (Leverton Fox) come across a lot more gritty and demented than Polar Bear and there are even shades of 23 Skidoo and, more substantially, Nurse With Wound and very early Cabaret Voltaire.”
