Bio

Mangelwurzel (Man-Gel-Wur-Zel) are a six-piece based in Melbourne. The band are renowned for their exciting and unpredictable live shows, a spectacle that needs to be seen to be believed.

Drawing influence from a vast array of styles and genres, they’ll take you on a psychotic journey through new wave, reminiscence to 70s kraut rock noodling, followed by violent swells of post punk noise into sonic gardens of 90s pop power ballads.
Often likened to something, but also sounding like something else, Mangelwurzel will leave you scratching your head in sick perverse pleasure, wanting more.

In the past they have been privileged to support such bands as Pond, King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard, The Courtney’s (CAN) & Tonstartssbandht (USA).

Their debut LP ‘Gary’ is set to be released in early 2016

A visceral garage journey. Such a fan of Cosima's vocals on this. You've made a new fan outta me.

A blend of genres magically woven together to create a really unique tune. Unpredictable at every turn.

The chaos is mostly controlled and all I can hear are six beautiful souls shining.
