Minimal rock band Peel Off The Bass is from Dnepropetrovsk, Ukraine.
Most of all, this is the most interesting guitar indie-band of Ukraine for now. The first and the only full-length album was released by Quasi Pop in 2002. It was the very first Ukrainian album in post-rock style (as it is acknowledged in Europe…). Also there's a stable opinion that the debut album of Peel Off The Bass is still the best Ukrainian minimal-rock album ever made.
The music of Peel Off The Bass is intelligent and laconic. It was created with lo-fi equipment in "home studio": no budget, no expensive fx, no tricks and over-dubs.
Only the rough and powerfull sound of drums (both acoustic and drum-machine programmed), guitar and bass. Only the simpleness of minimalistic guitar riffs, and the beautiful balance between "cold" almost-songs textures and hot energy of group's improvisations.
In the best modern tradition the music of Peel Off The Bass creates an impression of half improvised & half composed. The music flows easily and unconstrain, besides the music flow stays sensible, it has some vector, reason for movement. There's even on song with English vocal — pop song in fact.
