Andy and Edwin Mathis White are the duo known as Tonstartssbandht. Behind the made up name (pronounced as tahn-starts-bandit) is a lifetime of synergistic sibling energy and a decade of making and releasing music together.
After spending their teenage years exploring the languid landscape of improvised ensemble noise rock, they focused their efforts on recording a few cover versions of songs from the Beach Boys' Smiley Smile / Wild Honey. As choir members in their youth, the two felt no apprehension at the vocal task at hand and set their expectations to "neutral" when eventually writing their own music.
They've released three independent albums, An When, Dick Nights, and Maihama, Midnite Cobras 7, and their first full-length 12" Now I Am Become, a platter of music splattering between dooming rock and choral harmony. Their latest record Sorcerer was finally completed earlier in March and recorded in their home studio.
Bringing their split psyche sets on the road, don't miss Andy and Edwin at Bethnal Green Working Mens Working Club.
