INTRODUCING STARTRIPPER:


Startripper are a loops/guitar psychedelic 2 piece from Chester, UK. 

Featuring Vince Cory on lead (Sonic Trip Project/Red Elektra 69/Ash Magna/Nik Turner) and Daniel Schott on decks/synth/samples, this is the spirit of ’67 with 90’s big beat sensibilities.

The duo, both originally from the same Cheshire village but a generation apart, met through Dan’s love of Vince’s other band Red Elektra ’69 and started experimenting with loops and samples from the likes of Chemical Brothers, The Beatles & The Spencer Davis Group, with Vince throwing lead over the top and Dan adding noise and fx. 

This lead them to playing a number of live improv gigs around Chester and also the remixes appearing on Soundcloud

As the rehearsals went on and the duo were finding their sound, Dan started building his own samples and work started on their original material. 

Over the last 18 months Startripper have released two EP’s and Dan has released a side-project with Chester musician David Watson entitled ‘Startripper & The Blue Boy’  all through Schott’s List Music, with all the back catalogue available to stream at the end of September 2019.

Vince completely kicking it to the birds whilst I attempt to hold 4 tracks and two samples down without red-lining it TOO much.

Live psyche from the Tarvin turkey men.

We're looking forward to some dates across Liverpool & Manchester in early 2020.

Enjoy.

'....Startripper are a full on in your face joy. There’s a guy on a computer playing with beats and a lead guitar player just letting rip. How can this be so much fun, I’ve no idea but the rhythms keep pounding into my head and the effects laden guitar keeps throwing melodies at me, I’m transfixed. This is out there psych, pulsing, live and vibrant; it’s time to turn off, tune out and drop in. It flies in the face of the conventional and it does it with style and class. A half hour of sheer rhythmic get out of your safe place assault played by two people who are in control and out of control at the same time, again, a joy to hear.....'

Thanks for the kind words 👍
