I'm booking some dates for Peter James Taylor in September. He's available
between 9th and 17th September.

Please read carefully the long text that follows and also visit:

Taylor is a man trying to create the darkest sounding guitar music on
record. Composing music specifically for electric guitar. Live shows
either consist of musicians getting together on the day and creating music
from his compositions or practised performances. “MATE” Written for 6
guitars and drums is a discordant nightmare in the vein of Glenn Branca on
acid. Guitars are tuned into octaves and placed into chorded sections.
These dark and sometimes epic compositions take no prisoners in there
mission to melt your mind. Expect a dense wall of noise that will leave
you short of breath and wanting more. Letting several guest musicians
loose to interpret his compositions and featuring members of action beat,
house of john player and hired muscle. This is truly a musician and
composer showing a mature, tense sound beyond his past experiences. The
12” vinyl on Fortissimo records comes with both CDR and digital download
meaning three formats for nearly the price of one. These 8 tracks lasting
over 40 minutes are a sonic assault on the senses, which will not leave
you disappointed.
and here is a recent review.......
“This is a pretty astounding sounding record. Taking time off from his
main band Action Beat, PJT has assembled a contemporary UK “guitar army”
in the vein of ol’ Noisy bastard Glenn Branca’s NY outfit. ‘Mate’ is the
result. A taut, wiry collision of furious and mighty monotone guitar
thrash & some seriously insane Steve Shelley-esque drum abuse. This
incredibly fine record reminds you of what it is like to get caught right
in the eye of a prime SY maelstrom or the culmination of an Action Beat
curated aural tornado. This is rock music on a very pure, electrifying
plain. Forceful, intelligent, relentless, euphoric & very loud. But with
the source ingredients being relatively minimal, you’re getting all the
uncluttered detail. Just galloping, driving drums & walls of fierce
guitars that slice up and down the side of your face like the most brutal
biting wind. Put this vicious fucker on and you’ll get forced right slam
into the back of your sofa, such is the velocity & fury of this very
righteous rock. Power on boys. Stellar line-up also includes memebers of
House of John Player & Hired Muscle!” 5/5 Norman
Peter J Taylor’s name might make him sound like he’s a columnist for a
broadsheet paper but listen to a mere split second of his music and you’ll
realise that he’s actually a monstrous nutter who’s created an sick
instrumental album of intense, punky guitar driven compositions that sound
like they’re the backing track to a b-movie car chase. He used to be in
some band I’ve never heard of, but who cares about that, care about this.

His album ‘Mate’ is in parts simply white noise and this alone should make
it at least a bit awful. But it’s not awful at all. It’s good. Great in
fact. I put it on and listened to the whole thing straight through. It’s
so manic and tense in nature, it doesn’t let up or let go. It’s akin to a
refreshing citrus slap round the face that barks “Stop listening to Mark
Lanegan you twat.” (Just me then?) It makes me remember how much raucous
fun music can be; and Taylor sounds like he’s having so much fun. I just
want to pick up a guitar join in.

There are also some great little intricacies to be found buried in these
wailing eight tracks, but I don’t think for a minute any of it was done
consciously. ‘Mate’ is like a Kandinsky painting: insane, nonsensical,
alluring; hinting at control and yet overall its odd parts make a
beautiful whole. It’s also a big-bastard sonic onslaught of electric death
too, of course.

The self released album ‘Mate’ is available for a mere £4 on his bandcamp
site but if you’re a tight-fisted, miser, skinflint, cheapskate tight wad,
then you can just stream the thing and rock out in front of your computer
like it’s 2011. But remember: Your ears are for life, not just for
