Lone Taxidermist / Bio

““A howl-inducing music making machine" Ruth Barnes 6 Music / Amazing Radio

Lone Taxidermist perform in unique Spaces, Disused Flax Seed Mills of the North, Railway Arches Under the Thames, and down helter skelters.....

Parading the macabre, they conjure a sound that teeters on the edge of something beautiful and terrifying, the void where pleasure and pain mingle. Their background in the visual arts infuses every performance, feeding the eyes as well as the ears. Lone Taxidermist plays with the gothic and enchanting to create a disturbed beauty that exists in the darkest spaces of our minds, with saws, organs, bells, broken strings, old blues howling and an exquisite voice that could raise the dead.

Following the break up of her Manchester band, The Bottomfeeders, Natalie went solo, accumulating many a wild and wondrous piece of kit to create the unique sound of Lone Taxidermist.
In late 2011 she was joined by Phil Winter (Tunng), re-christened 'Louise', and the band was finally complete in 2012 after returning from a sonic adventure to Berlin - inspiring primal rhythm and distorted sonic wave. Live drums entered the band in the form of Hjordis (Hj Moon) Badford and knob twiddling evolved into the shamanic shape of Louise’s friend, Will Wilba and his techno whispering wizardry.

Having already supported Thomas Truax, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes and Wildbirds and Peacedrums, to name but a few, their reputation is spreading rapidly across London and the UK.
Lone Taxidermist has gained exposure and praise through John Doran of The Quietus, Ruth Barnes and Tom Robinson BBC 6 Music and Specials Front man Terry Hall.
