New Thrill Parade seem to be keeping with a part of the Bay area scene I’ve always admired, music that twists experimental, dark and beautiful sounds into sexually charged surrealist forms of experience. From other parts of the world, they remind me of the Birthday Party meets the Buthole Surfers, in an alley somewhere. Dark and beautiful horns, vocal choruses and stranded yells, somewhere on their myspace it read “rock for gloomed souls”. And, of course Marco Polio are as fun as the are interesting…always exxxcited as hell to have them back to the Plex.

SF Bay Times review of New Thrill Parade DNA Lounge show.

Graves, Kings and Funk By Don Baird

"....Next up was New Thrill Parade from Santa Cruz, whom I had seen once before a couple of years ago and who come highly recommended by quite a few friends as a favorite local act. Eight members strong, this psychedelic mind-bending outfit features dual drummers and guitarists, bass, keyboards, violin, vocalist and saxophone. About half of the members wore unusual and scary disguises, like the saxophone player wore a floral party dress and a really creepy monkey mask, and the bass player had pulled a stuffed animal pig's head over his own. And one of the guitarist had a cowboy hat with black fabric stretched over his face. The effect was really creepy and theatrical. I knew right away that I was headed for the brink of sanity with this group, led by a skinny guy wearing black bib-overalls with large white buttons, like Dickensian summer-wear, if you could imagine. One of the drummers, whom I recognized as cover star of the March issue of Butt Magazine,the drummer issue, had an unusual set up, just one main drum and some bent cymbals up-turned and sitting on the floor.They lurched into explosive wall of sound mind-fuck, like 0 to 60 mph in three seconds, a cacophony of rage, free-form instrumental abstraction, and the vocalist's wiry frame flinging about the stage as he inhabited about three different voices intermittently. I immediately was reminded of The Butthole Surfers back in the '80s, their relentless tribal shamanistic freak shows, so psychedelic that seeing them was better than taking acid. This was the closest a band has gotten to that feeling since psychotic locals Tragic Mulatto were still together. It was very entertaining. On one song, a slow plodding drone would build to a crescendo of wailing saxophone with three male members screaming into their microphones like toddlers crying for attention. It was unhinged and brilliant, showing a bit more attention to structure than my description implies. I believe one song had a vocal refrain about liking cock, which I can appreciate. Their set seemed to be onlyabout four songs, but it was satisfying nonetheless."

WHO WANTS 45 GRAVE IN MICHIGAN? [Sep. 26th, 2006|10:01 pm]
Detroit Deathrock

[mood |accomplishedaccomplished]
[music |Marc and the Mambas]


Don't make me be alone! They are going on another tour and their manager said they've contacted all of the venues in Michigan, and none of them are interested in having 45 Grave because of a lack of interest (even the so called goth clubs, City Club/Labyrinth) so everyone message St Andrews/Shelter and The Magic Stick and see if you can get them a show there! Even the Token Longue!

Pass This around!!!

Tell them to contact:

NEW WAVE Band Seeks Electronic Drummer! [Aug. 28th, 2006|04:46 pm]
Detroit Deathrock

[music |David Wrench - "Superhorny"]

We're a NEW WAVE band from the Ann Arbor, MI area and we'd like to adopt a drummer with an electronic drum kit (not necessarily that one, though it *is* really cool) into our fold.

We are:
youngsoulrebelRuadhan: vocals
justyn1337Justyn: synths, backing vocals
Mo: synths, backing vocals

Our synth guys do synth/key and guitar and bass lines.  We're currently working on some cover songs for a Wayne Theatre restoration benefit performance and after that gig, we're going to work on adding original material and more "arty" performances (think like the old Klaus Nomi show).

Influences include: DEVO, Princess Tinymeat/Virgin Prunes, Gary Numan/Tubeway Army, Klaus Nomi, Japan, Visage, Kitchen & the Plastic Spoons, David Wrench, etc...

The covers we're working on include:
DEVO: "Blockhead", "Strange Pursuit" and "Smart Patrol"
Princess Tinymeat: "Angels In Pain"
Gary Numan: "Me! I Disconnect From You"

Owning your own equipment (including amp) is a must at this point, cos all of our amp outlets are currently being used.  Living in the or being willing to travel to area for practise is preferred.

Get a hold of Ruadhan via LJ and he'll get back to you within twenty-four hours, no later.

Want To Join a New Wave Band? [Aug. 12th, 2006|12:26 am]
Detroit Deathrock

I am starting a NEW WAVE-styled art band.

I sing, play viola and have remedial skills on guitar.  If I can get other members, we can BE A REAL BAND!  Since this is "NEW WAVE", people with synths would definitely be useful, knowing how to play would be like a bonus.

Bands in the NEW WAVE / ART ROCK idiom and related genres that I draw some influence from include Japan, Roxy Music, Velvet Underground, Frankie Goes to Hollywood, Klaus Nomi, Lene Lovich, Tik and Tok, Danielle Dax, Gina X Performance, Princess Tinymeat, Virgin Prunes, DEVO (like you wouldn't believe), Visage, Kraftwerk, Cali's Car (leave yer bauhaus at home!), Sigue Sigue Sputnik, Toyah, Vicious Pink....

I need a minimum of: somebody with a GUITAR, somebody with DRUMS, at least one somebody with a SYNTHESISER, somebody with a BASS GUITAR...

If you live in Michigan (preferably the Detroit or Ann Arbor area) and this totally sounds up your alley, feel free to contact me via LJ or you can find my e-mail here: http://rowan.sexyhobbitsuperstar.com/contact/

For those in-the-know or are just plain curious, this new band has NOTHING to do with This Is Where the Fish Lives (my sound collage project).  TIWtFL is totally a different thing.  Of course, if you play something like, I dunno, the concertina or something, I might be able to exploit that for TIWtFL.
