Introducing: Port Sulphur
The Creeping Bent Organization is a record label and arts collective, headed by musician, producer, and all-around musico, Douglas MacIntyre. Affiliated bands include Sexual Objects, Fire Engines, Jazzateers, The Sexual Objects, and today's featured artists, Port Sulphur. Affiliated record imprints include We Can Still Picnic, which has featured on these pages previously.
We don't know much about Port Sulphur. They have been described as an electronic collective, although they seem to be a pop/rock group as well. My introduction was via the raucous, and totally danceable, gem "Fast Boys & Factory Girls", which was released in June. That single followed by ten months a three track release titled EP1, which was released by We Can Still Picnic. On EP1 the band covered PIL's "Poptones", with Erik Sandberg featuring on vocals, the Fire Engines' "Discord" with Russell Burn, and Alex Harvey Band's "The Faith Healer" with poet Jock Scot providing the vocals. Enjoy, and if you are interested, see the Bandcamp links below.
