Tarracóir (pron. tah-ra-core) is Gaelic for Tractor - think Grindcore, Hardcore (but never Normcore!) and a gravitation pulling you in.....
"GROWTH: IT'S A HANDJOB NOT A HANDOUT"
Tarracóir formed in Dublin where the three had played together for years in United Bible Studies. Tarracóir was formed to create something more primitive & brutal, something "pure ignorant". Each Tarracóir performance is an antidote to Western Culture's enfeebling denial of the irrational and cthonic parts of our nature. Tarracóir's genre is "Base Metal" - the listener is the alchemist. Listeners will hear elements of Free Jazz, Death Metal and the blare & clatter of Tibetan Buddhist demon-chasing rituals. “GROWTH” consists of their first two gigs edited, collaged and overdubbed for max impact.
