Featuring Tim Hodgkinson (Henry Cow, The Work) on Hawaiian laptop noisy guitar and keyboards, Mick Hobbs (Family Fodder, The Work, Officer!) on bass and Andy Wake (Unrest, Work & Play) on drums, The Momes were an unique power trio with an abrasive sound channelling post-punk, psych-prog and avant-rock. “Spiralling” is their sole album, recorded at This Heat’s Cold Storage studio by Charles Bullen (This Heat, Lifetones) and originally released in 1989 on the Woof label (operated by Tim Hodgkinson and Bill Gilonis).
