This is an archive of the band profile for Mouth Taped Shut.
Paul Quirk - Guitar
Dave Backhouse - Bass
Edward Szakal - Drums
Over the course of the year Mouth Taped Shut have quite merrily developed a sound that they can call their own. Rolling out of infancy and onto the stage, the three piece offer a brand of instrumental, riffy, math-inspired music that is becoming increasingly popular in the British alternative music scene.
The trio became a band shortly after becoming friends when they each moved into Leeds. Through the first year of developing their sound, Paul, Dave and Edward have taken influence from the recent surge in math rock and combined it with some old friends to write music they enjoy playing. With intent to play every stage possible, it's looking to be an exciting year for Mouth Taped Shut..
