Folks, this one is going to blow the roof off the old Saint.
X___X («ex blank ex»)
«A turbulent quartet that tore through Cleveland like a Dadaist cyclone for six months in 1978. Preceding his imminent relocation to NYC, burly, blond brawler John D Morton assembled the project as a tighter, more rocking successor to his storied proto-punk act, the electric eels.» -Ektro Records
Six months, two KBD 45s and five shows.
*«The record I’d brought home was wild: Its atonal droning, lurching rhythms, skronky guitars and snarling vocals suggested a Midwestern cousin to New York’s “no wave” movement. This was literally art-punk.» -New York Times
The latest incarnation of X__X also features Craig Bell (Mirrors, Rocket from the Tombs, the Down-fi) and is amazing live.
You will be sorry if you miss this show!
Support from Toronto fuzz beat garage monsters THE POW WOWS (get hip records). «One of the mainstays of the Toronto garage rock scene, the Pow Wows like their music fast, loud, and atmospheric, giving their tunes a buzzy, swampy tone and a psychedelic overlay that sets them apart from other fuzzbox manglers following similar paths.» — Mark Deming, Allmusic.com
And local hooligans THE NOBLE SAVAGES: Back from the dead with a truly savage «new» drummer and wilder sound. (Plus a few surprises.)
PLUS DJ Rob Sikora will be spinning fascinating musical gems all night long
