Thread Pulls are a band in Dublin city, Ireland. They are Gavin Duffy and Peter Maybury. They made a mini-album called Summer songs in late 2004 which was reviewed in ‘The Wire’ magazine and lead to them being invited by Vincent Gallo to play ‘All tomorrow’s parties’ in 2005. Since then they’ve either been recording or playing live very rarely. In December 2006 they released Fluorescent 1, 2 and 3, Each one limited to 100 copies with individual artwork by Garrett Phelan.
Stripped back to a duo in January 2007 and never known to stick to one style, they have made a complete u-turn sound-wise now having discarded their customary off-kilter motoriks and feedback drones for a new upbeat trip. Shows in Ireland and Europe are planned for this coming Autumn as well as a brand new 7-inch record. http://www.myspace.com/threadpulls
