Front row: Mitch Mitchell’s Terrifying Experience

Mitch Mitchell's Terrifying Experience

The Terrifying Experience is the brainchild of Guided by Voices guitarist Mitch Mitchell, following the breakup of the “classic” GBV lineup in the mid-1990s. The band’s status as an ongoing musical entity has changed almost as many times as the band members have since their first appearance on record in 1996. But, whenever one may think that Mitch Mitchell’s Terrifying Experience is as dead as fried chicken, the group jumps back on a local stage seemingly out of nowhere, and this night’s free performance at Omega Music was seemingly such an occasion. The newest incarnation of MMTE appeared this night as a power trio. And when I say “power,” this particular lineup had it in spades. Almost too loud for the room, MMTE bulldozed its way through a 40-minute set with the subtlety of an army tank. MMTE’s craft is raw, rough and tumble, no frills, heavy rock ‘n’ roll – just the way I like it. If you prefer your rock music slick and pretty, you should run away from this band in, well, terror.
– Gary Spencer
