Blending the cosmic energies of Nu-Jazz with modern rock sensibilities and
live electronic devices, the music of the Wrong Object is influenced by a
vast array of artists ranging from Canterbury Scene prog rock à la Soft
Machine and Gong to Béla Bartok, Squarepusher, Aka Moon, Charlie Mingus,
Sonic Youth and Frank Zappa.While their repertoire contains mainly
original compositions, they also play a special set of Zappa covers on
The Wrong Object have played in many different countries (including
England, Germany, Italy, Greece, France, Wales, The Netherlands, Czekia,
Slovakia, Luxembourg and even Belgium) and their live recordings have been
favorably reviewed and aired by radio stations across the globe. They will
continue to perform in clubs and theaters next year and will play Summer
festivals abroad. Their side projects “Elton Dean Meets The Wrong Object”
and “The Wrong Object feat. Annie Whitehead and Harry Beckett” were
documented by two CD releases issued by Moonjune Records and Voiceprint.
Their recent studio album, "Stories from the Shed" (Moonjune Records) has
been available for purchase since January 2008.
It was followed by "After the Exhibition", in 2013, with guest percussionist Benoît Moerlen.
Two CDs are forthcoming in 2018: the first one is a tribute to Frank Zappa and a new album of original compositions are forthcoming in 2018.
