Cristopher Cichocki put together a fucking amazing and groundbreaking new DVD of spastic, fractured “noise” videos which he previewed last Monday AND an incredible bill of performers that literally blew the place out. I mean, this show was always gonna be the coolest ever but who would have expected the hugest Pehr crowd in recent memory!? This show was nuts, and I admit, I went a little nuts, too! Yowza…
So let’s continue the insanity this week, shall we? I couldn’t be more proud of The Amazements and the bills they put together for the first 4/5ths of March. This band really speaks to me musically—these guys harken back to the ancient days of rock ‘n roll’s birth, yet they are also brusquely avant-garde in a way that no one prior to the 21st century could have anticipated. And they actually *play* music—like, listen to each other and react to what’s happening with their instruments. I mean, I am not hung up on that anymore (music can be totally impenetrable and yet still valid and involving on other levels), but it’s nice to hear three dudes going at it full force with some serious panache. The Amazements are the real deal! Check the March shows if you like new rock carnage!!!
