Somehow beyond the odds Tauranga has developed a cutting edge underground
the envy of larger, more cultured cities. And with this movement has come one band at the
fore – Threat.Meet.Protocol.
Beginning life as a 2 piece bass/drum noise outfit consisting of Scowlin
Wolf and the Human
Ashtray and claiming to hail from the smallest of rural towns. T.MP quickly gained a
reputation for wild, abrasive live shows and a sound that was dubbed “Farmcore”.
After releasing ‘13 Farmcore Favourites’ and ‘Dud on the Tracks’ in
2012 and 2013
respectively, T.M.P expanded their line up to include Keyboard virtuoso Luke Turner. Taking a more serious tone from here in – Threat.Meet.Protocol would start to develop a sound
indicative of their music evolution and growing maturity.
Which leads us to their new album – ‘Mindless Consumption’.
A reflection of a band at the
peak of their talents and a culmination of all the accrued expectation heaped upon them
from their inception 5 years earlier. 9 songs, 31 minutes of serious intent.
