WeirdGear are an affable trio from Essex (LOS/BIC/ROM) who use classic analogue synthesisers, effects pedals and drum machines....
WeirdGear perform completely live - with no backing trax, MIDI or sequencers.... though we are now using computers to record and produce our material; conscious of being as live as possible with our output.
WeirdGear now can also be heard on Thames Delta Radio Station; Ship Full of Bombs SFOB.co.uk (on fb and twitter too). The show can be heard the 2nd Sunday in every month from 8-10pm and is a smorgasboard of music, chat, laughter and often 'Themes'. Check out the show archive on the SFOB podcast page.
WeirdGear wrote, recorded, mixed and produced their upcoming 3rd album; Cosmonautes Discotheque - Released on Monday 4th November 2013.
5th August 2013 brought the release of the 3rd and final EP from the album; called Points. It has some great remixes.
25th February 2013 we released of a second EP from the album; called Daytona87. It was released with some great remixes.
26th November 2012 we released our first EP; Black7 which is available from all those download stores we love to shop in. It is available with 4 remixes by some good chums of the band.
Our debut album Aurora - was released on 27th February 2012 and is available via iTunes, Amazon, Spotify and CD Baby to name a few.... Check most reputable download sites.
AURORA features the rather talented Dave Panter who was a member of WeirdGear until his sad retirement from band activities in 2009. This material is the tracks that were written and gigged by the band from 2006-2009.
There is also a companion FREE album called 'Aurora Bonus' which contains some other material which is completely improvised and live recorded during our studio rehearsals as a quartet. This is available to anyone who asks us nicely.
