A Liverpool. UK based ensemble composing and performing music for solid-body electric guitar, percussion and other instruments.

Incorporating multiple prepared electric guitars struck with percussion mallets and treated as an infinitely variable sound-source as well as drawing on an arsenal of cymbals, bells, prayer bowls and acoustic percussion, Ex-Easter Island Head devise works that explore group interplay, repetition and melodic invention through purposefully limited means.

They have performed their original compositions solo, as a duo, three piece, quartet and as a large ensemble across a wide variety of events, from site specific installation works to live film scores.

Their debut records – Mallet Guitars One and Mallet Guitars Two - were released by Nottingham-based Low Point records to critical acclaim from the likes of The Wire, Pitchfork and The Quietus. Their third release Mallet Guitars Three will be released on 7th October 2013.
