Is there such a thing as too many guitarists in a band? Finland’s Teksti-TV 666 says I think not. Formed three years ago, things have escalated rather quickly for the seven-headed shoegazing kraut-punk monster. Armed with no less than five (at times six) electric guitars, Teksti-TV 666 are nowadays one of the most in-demand live acts in their native Finland, and select performances abroad have caused a bit of a storm, as well. After autumn 2016’s Finnish tour with Kvelertak, the band will set their sights on Europe, beginning with a tour in Norway.
Teksti-TV 666 is a band built on contradictions. It is as if New! performed Ramones songs; it is a shoegazing Helicopters; it is a heavy-but-soft wall of noise, a colorful slow-motion explosion. With over 100 shows played in three years and three EPs behind them, the band’s reputation is rapidly on the rise.
