Stergin Short Info

"A bewildering cavalcade of noise, with cutting edge electronics sitting alongside rather more vintage fare." CLASH

“Strikingly unique; an offbeat departure from the day that hints at all manner of things to come.”
(Tom Johnson, Goldflakepaint)

Creating is Vinzenz Stergin’s passion. For this multi-talented musician, the act of making music is its own reward. Vinzenz and versatile drummer Adam Betts (known for his work with electronic maverick Squarepusher & Three Trapped Tigers) are Naim Records’ latest signing, Stergin – a band who combine blues, rock, electronics and modern composition in a way that defies musical boundaries and gleefully breaks rules.

Inspired by psychedelia, “’60s and ’70s weird music”, Frank Zappa and the Mothers of Invention, he shared a house with producer/musician John Calvert (Ghostpoet), who put him onto electronic music (as well as co-producing the EP tracks). Nowadays, a love of contemporary acts like Jon Hopkins bleeds through Stergin’s music.

“… his use of field recordings, that’s something I try to do a lot, use found sounds and then treat them,” Vinzenz says. On YouTube, Stergin’s solo Monday Evening Bathroom Sessions are films of him performing in his bathroom, making up fun, inventive songs based on newspaper articles that have appeared the same day.

“I’m a work in progress and I love it,” says Vinzenz.
