MILE ME DEAF
is first and foremost 27 year old Wolfgang Möstl, living and working in Vienna. Wolfgang is a key figure in Austria's noise pop scene. As the mastermind behind KILLED BY 9V BATTERIES he integrates experimental sounds, homemade instruments, and his love for 90s shoegaze into a pop context. He has collaborated with Austrian techno pioneer and Hercules and Love Affair producer Patrick Pulsinger, as well as Dutch guitar luthier Yuri Landmann, who has designed unique guitars for Sonic Youth, Blood Red Shoes and Liars. Always driven by a strong DIY approach, Wolfgang Möstl runs his own music label, Numavi Records, offering a platform to musical experiments, temporary side-projects and friends in artistic crime. In addition he is creates much of the artwork for his projects and videos, and lately has become a demanded producer within the local indie and noise scene.
Alongside his intense involvement in various bands and artistic projects, Wolfgang kept writing songs on his own and filed them under "MILE ME DEAF" on his desktop computer. Within 9 years, about 500 partially recorded songs piled up there, and were infrequently made available on CD-Rs, cassettes, and even floppy discs at live shows. Only in 2010 did the first official 7-inch release as MILE ME DEAF see the light of day on the charming arts and music label FETTKAKAO, which helped to initiate the idea to make MILE ME DEAF a "serious" and full grown band. Backed up by two members of befriended band SEX JAMS, the first offical album "EAT SKULL" was recorded with all brand new songs - no dated archived material - released jointly via SILUH RECORDS and FETTKAKAO June 1st, 2012. For Wolfgang Möstl "EAT SKULL" also signifies a certain artistic emancipation; his recent collaboration with Vienna's electronic music wizard Patrick Pulsinger finally resulted in a move from the city of Graz to Vienna in 2011.
