Pop Will Eat Itself

Mute Elephant Presents:

Pop Will Eat Itself

In 1987, Pop Will Eat Itself surprised the independent music world by morphing overnight from two minute, three-chord indie pop wonders into hip-hop rock crossover pioneers. Years ahead of their time, PWEI produced Box Frenzy, a furious mix of beatboxes, metal riffs, MC’ing and pop songs. Featuring the notorious Beaver Patrol single, and the hugely successful There Is No Love Between Us Anymore, the album brought the band a whole new audience and opened them up to as much praise as it did ridicule amongst a perplexed music press.

This unique band, whose influence touched the careers of acts such as The Prodigy and Nine Inch Nails, still has a large, strong following worldwide. 

In December 2021 the band head to Birmingham Institute & Brighton Chalk for 2 special shows.
