Featuring a number of the strongest germs in Melbourne, Australia’s garage area punk scene, Total Control shaped in 2008 when UV Contest drummer Dan Steward and Eddy Current Suppression Band guitarist/producer Mikey Young emerged together more than a appreciate of wiry ’80s punk heros like Devo, Gary Numan, as well as the Screamers. Both primarily busy using their primary bands, they attempted Total Control whenever period allowed, ultimately bashing out a punky self-titled debut 7″ in 2008. The band’s produces came mostly by means of quickly sold-out 7″ singles for another couple of years, including Paranoid Video as well as the cold-wavey Pyre Isle. Each concurrent one noticed the duo (occasionally aided by exterior players on these recordings) moving styles dramatically. Enthusiasts and press as well observed Total Control developing even more minimal with each equipment shift, adopting even more electronic components as their catalog grew. Later 2011 saw the discharge of Henge Defeat, their initial full-length undertaking, and an amalgamation of the many cold designs that wove through their prior singles. Steward and Youthful enlisted assistance from accomplices through the Melbourne punk underbelly for both documenting of Henge Defeat aswell as concert events. At this time the band liked an effective tour from the Expresses opening for SAN FRANCISCO BAY AREA garage area favorites Thee Oh Views.
