There is not much difference between a futon and the music of part-Thai, part-English electro outfit Futon – both are made for mind-blowing sweaty one-night-stands. Futon is all about filthy electro grooves channeled with a God Save the Queen-era punk snarl and the glam level turned to 11, facilitating all manner of animalistic lovin’. With their recent stellar performance at Heineken Thirst Studio 2006 Malaysia and rapidly increasing international tour dates, this is a band that is not so much electroclash as it is a culture clash.
