Who is Amon Tobin?

Somewhere back in the mid-90’s a fresh faced Brazilian ex-pat living in the UK decided he was going to put down his harmonica, pick up a sampler, and name himself after a Stephen King novel. The resulting album, Cujo’s ‘Adventures In Foam’ (released on Ninebar records, later reissued on Ninja Tune) signaled Amon Tobin’s entry into the world of music. Well actually there’s a pre-Cujo project also, but everybody knows not to talk about it… but if you get Amon really drunk… actually no, even then he won’t play it for you.Immediately upon hearing this record, the powers that be at Ninja Tune signed him up to record as Amon Tobin, and he quickly went to work on his debut ‘Bricolage’… and things have been rolling along nicely ever since.The thing about an Amon show is that you could always escape the immense volume by going to the back of the room… in surround there is no escape folks.

Enjoy the Amon Tobin video for 'Sordid':

Amon Tobin is being brought to Portland by the fine folks the Abstract Earth Project
