From: Vienna, Austria
Sex Jams are straight out of Vienna’s throbbing underground DIY scene, and are a thrilling live act that spit out spontaneous bursts of pure pop and overdriven noise-fuzz capable of disarming the mightiest of opposition. Their album Trouble, Honey packages Punk-pop with neatly dovetailed ambient soundscapes and is a record that brings together in unholy matrimony the pop panache of Blondie with moments that could be Dinosaur Jr at their fuzzy finest. They perfectly blend anarchic, smash-the-state sincerity with nerve-wrenching soul and dream-laden pop. XFM-London’s John Kennedy recently called them his new favorite band. Sex Jams are a group best described as “a gang without a leader”. They comprise of Katharina Trenk (vocals), Lukas Bauer (guitar), Rudi “Rudeboy” Braitenthaller (drums) and Florian Seyser (bass). The group’s line-up is completed with Vienna based polymath and Siluh Records golden boy, Wolfgang Möstl.
