After the break-up of his previous band Acoustic Ladyland, saxophonist Pete Wareham began exploring Egyptian, Nubian and other North African music and, seeing how well this went down with audiences at his DJ sets, Melt Yourself Down were born. Pete assembled the band from musicians he had worked with in various projects and collaborations, initially intending it to be an instrumental line-up. Snappy vocalist Kushal Gaya was added to the group shortly after the initial rehearsals. Of their eponymously titled debut album, The Quietus Pete says, “the music on this…debut album is insanely full of energy and ideas, a tumultuous barrage of snaky, infectious hooks and punishingly addictive grooves.”
