WHAT

The Malthusian Trap are a band based in Plymouth, Devon.  We are part electronic, part mechanical and a 1/6 human.  A hybrid of styles born from a frustration of the generic.  In a short space of time we have played most major cities in the UK and have appeared on various radio stations.  We are an independent band who are sick of seeing clone after clone after clone. We do things as we think they should be done.  If you don’t like it then you know what to do.

WHO

Born a bastard love child fathered by the Hacienda of Manchester, the rave culture of Birmingham & the industrialism of the Plymouth dockyards.  The Malthusian Trap are made up of Doug Bishop on bass guitar, Rob Griffiths on lead guitar, Damon Foster on vocals and a robotic machine called Akai on drums.
