Milk blur


"The Mekano Set get us all worked up with the promise of a song called 'Dirty Hand Job', and then totally spoil the mood by being goths... about as menacing as a Crow soundtrack." Emily Mackay.*


"Seedily attractive, smooth, impressively catchy, seething power..." Mick Mercer.


"Don't Eat The Sweets is an incredible track with great vocal harmony and beautifully structured layers of guitar and drums to really lure you into the mood to party." Hidden Sanctuary Radio.


"Filthy electro-rock... like some kind of beautiful crime." Niall O'Keeffe.


They take an industrial rock sounding shoegaze for a ride through a world of phazing guitar and driving beats, Depeche Mode vocals and slick electronic walls of sound.

Last time I saw them live they turned the smoke machine on full blast until you literally could not see your hand in front of your face and howled their guitars before stopping and leaving after one song! Brilliant! / Fokka Wolf.


"Delicate, filthy, post coital purr." Bubblegum Slut.


It’s a rare thing these days to actually find a genuinely original band. Whilst The Mekano set obviously show some of their influences, most notably late 70s/Early 80’s post punk and early 90s Shoegaze.

It’s the way it’s put together that makes The Mekano Set so unique. Hynotic beats combine with Hooky-esque basslines, fucked up guitar sounds and haunting, underplayed vocals.

Possibly The Mekano set’s weakness is they are impossible to categorise. Dark but not Goth, retro but modern. And people need their little boxes to put bands into these days. Some will get it, most won’t. I do get it and it is brilliant! / DJ Wild Bill Buttock


*NME / Stool Pigeon journalist Ms Mackay went on to criticize our "electro" tendencies, and our blatant use of what she thought was synthesizers. She also described non-existent photos of us standing outside a church wearing long black coats.

More recently, Ms Mackay wrote an article singing the praises of this new band she'd just discovered who go by the name of Ladytron. She didn't comment on their fondness for crushed black velvet, goth haircuts, pointy shoes, or their occasional use of synthesizing keyboards...

The Mekano Set use Dean Markley strings, shit guitars, a Samson Mixpad analog mixer,
tape recorders, old cheap PC laptops, second hand guitar effects and cheap digital drum machines
.

The Mekano Set do not use massive, over-priced amps, over-priced (shit) vintage guitars,
over-priced analog synths (although we wouldn't mind getting our hands on some syn-drums) etc.
