Tape Recorder Three began, in the summer of 2003, as a soundtrack project for an independent horror film. The soundtrack was completed and approved, but the film fell through eventually, due to lack of finances. Que sera sera. Starting where we left off, with dark, ambient guitar accompanied techno rock; we preceded to incorporate more organic song structure and song writing into our ouevre; in effect, we became a band. Taking our philisophical cue from Antonin Artuads 'theater of cruelty', and our musical one from the DIY prompts of punk and late 80's early 90's alternative bands, we became Tape Recorder Three. A post punk band with a literary chip on our shoulder, and a cinematic vision of what songs, and records can become when filtered through the experiential brain map of the individual. Psychopathology, mysticism, and mutation. Satire and surrealism. Nature. Art. Rapture, schizophrenia, and somnambulism. Peace and love. Animals both real and imagined. The psychoid realms of Carl Jung, and Stanlisov Grof. Painting pretty pictures in the wind. 'Track one and you're hooked. A renaissance of early 90's withdrawn cool.' -Alex Davis 'FREE-magazine.co.UK' 'As God is my witness, the lyrics Zack slaps down on this record are superb. Amazing. Enlightening, and worthy of being xeroxed and carried around in your wallet.'-Todd Beamis 'Indie-Music.com' 'One of the reasons that the major music labels are rapidly becoming irrelevant is that there isn't one of them that would put out something like CHARACTER AMOUR. (This) is one of the few alternative rock CD's I have heard in years that is worth listening to, repeatedly, all the way through, time and time again. Highly recommended.'-Joe Hartlaub 'music-reviewer.com' 'Informed as much by Syd Barret as by Bad Brains.'-Dave Lewis 'PLAY magazine' 'Tape Recorder Three's joy division inspired post punk, and darkly psychedelic americana makes for an intriging listen.'-Matthew Johnson 'graveconcernsezine'
