The Taupe is a post-punk band with a lean towards psychedelic and shoegaze. Their songs are dynamic, full of contrast and make the transition from peaceful and idyllic to ear-shatteringly LOUD in a hearbeat. Their lead guitarist's intricate pedal-board easily exceeds Air Canada's weight restrictions... so he'll be wearing the same clothes (and underwear) ten days straight ... just so you can experience The Taupe's mammoth sound that pushes the boundaries of lush, alien NOISE. You might lose your hearing but—it'll be worth it.

Check out Neil Patti Patti Patti's Youtube vids that teach viewers how to play his guitar parts, in particular the effector pedals and setting used. Unfortunately, the instructions are in Japanese but still very informational and useful since a picture is worth a 1000 words and a video is like a 1000 pictures.
