Tiny Magnetic Pets: named after the collectable Japanese toys. Tiny Magnetic Pets are: Paula, Sean & Eugene.
Vocalist Paula Gilmer honed her energetic live performance as a direct result of sharing the stage with The Prodigy. “Watching Keith Flint ignite the crowds at The Point was an epiphany. This is what fronting a live electronic band is all about and I knew at that moment this is what I wanted to do”. A former BMG Records artist, her tracks are included on various Ministry of Sound compilations.
Sean Quinn was signed to Brian Eno/Roxy Music’s label EG Records. While making an album for EG, Quinn discovered the Mellotron that had been hired by the studio was none other than the one used by The Beatles on Strawberry Fields. Thus began his love affair with vintage instruments. He has worked with System 7 main man and Charlatans producer Steve Hillage.
Sharing a fascination for classic albums of the late 70’s / early 80’s such as Bowie’s “Berlin Trilogy”, Gary Numan’s “Pleasure Principle” & Kraftwerk’s “Computer World” the band recorded their debut album ‘Return Of The Tiny Magnetic Pets’ working within the limitations of 70’s studio technology – No computers were used, just two Moogs, a Mellotron, Vox organ & guitars. The end result is an impressive blend of melodic invention & musicianship – all instruments & vocals were performed live. ‘Return Of The Tiny Magnetic Pets’ is a continuous musical trip which is already gaining comparisons with Air, Pink Floyd, Kraftwerk,Goldfrapp etc.
Second Tiny Magnetic Pets album "Deluxe/Debris" is coming out August 18th on Happy Robots Records Ft. Wolfgang Flür.
