Listeners report that the MITSUBISHIS produce intensely pleasurable effects including an enhanced sense of self-confidence and energy, but also feelings of peacefulness, acceptance and empathy.
Listeners say they experience feelings of closeness with others and a desire to touch others.
Other effects can include involuntary teeth clenching, a loss of inhibitions, transfixion on sights and sounds, nausea, blurred vision, chills and/or sweating.
Increases in heart rate and blood pressure, as well as seizures, are also possible.
The stimulant effect of the music enables listeners to dance for extended periods, which when combined with the hot crowded conditions usually found at gigs, can lead to severe dehydration and hypothermia or dramatic increases in body temperature.
This can lead to muscle breakdown and kidney, liver and cardiovascular failure.
Cardiovascular failure has been reported in some of the MITSUBISHIS related fatalities.
Cross Wires are a East London/Essex based four piece consisting of Jonathan Chapman (Vocals) Peter Muller (Guitar) Pete Letch (Bass) and Ian Clarke (Drums).
The band has featured on numerous blogs and radio stations including Amazing Radio, Sounds Good To Me Too, Rock N Roll in My Soul and Luminous Plectrum.
To date they have released four EPs – Forward/Repeat and Animal Heat in 2011, Dark Water in 2012 and ASSEMBLY in 2014.
“This very short EP packs a charismatic punch. The opening track, Central Sea, is a solid introduction to the bands style. Displaying a creative experimentation of sounds and styles as it parades through strong and pushy drum beat which acts as a drum roll for a catchy and passionate vocal attack, backed up by echoey, sci-fi-esque backing vocals before drawing the curtain with a very, different, almost spacey guitar riff” – Alternative Music Review (Dark Water EP Review).
dds is a band fronted by former Apartment guitarist. After a string of solo gigs, he has transformed his new project into a full band. Honest, vital and wanted for the murder of a Pat Benatar song.
