Bringdowns sound is described best by reclusive local legend Benjie Saunders when saying “it’s like Uncle Tupelo and the Afghan Whigs got in a bar fight with Tom Waits over a joint, and there ain’t nuthin’ wrong with that”

Matt Mullins (1983, Bluefield, United States) creates comedic performances and music. By parodying mass media by exaggerating certain formal aspects inherent to our contemporary society, Mullins makes works that can be seen as self-portraits. Sometimes they appear idiosyncratic and quirky, at other times, they seem typical by-products of American superabundance and marketing.
His performances are saturated with obviousness, mental inertia, clichés and bad jokes. They question the coerciveness that is derived from the more profound meaning and the superficial aesthetic appearance of an image. Matt Mullins currently lives and works in Snowville, VA.
