Tools You Can Trust

Manchester-based drum-orientated rhythm-makers, comprising of Rob Ward (vocals, percussion & tapes), Phil Hughes (guitar & percussion), Ben Stedman (drums, bongos and tapes) and Eddie Fenn (drums), plus additional percussionists on stage. There's very little information about this band on the web, but hey were big in the early NYC Goth / Industrial club scene.

The music is a cross between Jeff & Jane Hudson and Test Dept in an alternate dimension..
