South East London five-piece Ubermanoeuvre were drawn together by a shared dependence on E-number-heavy alcopops and a love of the mosh pit crush. With a sound drawn from the diverse backgrounds of the band members (guitarist Loz is an ex stand-up comic, keyboardist Chucky is a semi-pro juggler and drummer Um is an award-winning traditional Turkish percussionist), Ubermanoeuvre fuse influences from rock, metal, electro and hip hop to produce their high- impact rock ’n’ roll.
The band’s incendiary live show, propelled by the seemingly inhuman energy levels from hyperactive front man John Lumley, has built a dedicated following of glow-stick-wielding, Chodka-drinking fans. Recent gigs included a dangerously over-capacity sell-out headline at London’s 229 Venue and explosive showcases across London and the South East. Details of a full UK headline tour in the summer will be announced soon.
Debut album Burn This has been produced by Andreas Williamson (a.k.a. Fat Rasputin) and Dave Chang(Capdown, Lightyear, Stampin Ground). Mastered at Abbey Road by legendary engineer Adam Nunn(Radiohead, Mogwai, British Sea Power), the album is released through Spartan Records as a digital download and CD.
