Slug are the latest band to come from Sunderland’s thriving music scene. They are the brainchild of Ian Black who earned his stripes as a touring member of fellow mackems, Field Music. The ideas for the music on debut album, Ripe come from the deepest recesses of Black’s mind combining many disparate genres such as stoner metal and dub and influenced by work of John Bonham, James Brown, Claudio Simonetti and Fabio Pignatelli to create some sort of melodic cosmic indie prog. There's a Talking Heads vibe to it all as well. Peter and David Brewis of Field Music play on the album as well as producing it at their own recording studio. Slug have long been a favourite of 6 Music's Marc Riley. This will definitely appeal to fans of Field Music.
