The Tale of Taller Than — Mike Ross’ Legendary ‘Lost’ Album
Back in 1998, Mike’s band Taller Than recorded a 12-track album which, for various reasons, was never mixed or properly finished. For over twenty years, the original 2″master tapes were hidden away and all hope of finding either the time or finances to complete the project had long since been abandoned.
Enter COVID and the extreme disruption the pandemic has brought to touring (and most other aspects of ‘normal’ life). Attention turned from the road to the tape vault and a decision was made to reach out to the public to help restore, remix and release the forgotten Taller Than classic.
Pre-order packages, along with a selection of other merch and memorabilia items, are available from https://www.crowdfunder.co.uk/taller-than
The first track to emerge, rescued from the oubliette, is Mike’s freshman treatise on addiction, the thundering ’Nicotine Placebo’, featuring machine-gun drum flurries from Mike Kelly (latterly of The Mission) and the razor-slice bass work of Mike’s brother Graeme.

Experimenting with hazy soundscapes, fizzing riffs, marauding organs, infectiously free-roaming melodies, and all tied in with an undeniably DeWolff sound.
Psychedelic trio DeWolff return with their new album, Wolffpack, which will be released on 5th February 2021 via Mascot Records. Watch the first video release below of “Yes You Do.” or listen on Spotify HERE

‘Tide For The Change’ builds from a delicate piano introduction into a huge anthemic glacial pop gem, while Gaeya’s beautiful vocals look forward to a more positive, forward-thinking view in safeguarding the natural world. The latter is displayed in the brilliant self-made video created during lockdown.
