Whoa, how did this happen? Playing a show in Santiago Chile the day before the Sonic Youths?
Like a medieval ship unwittingly bringing plague into port along with a
shipment of smallpox-infested blankets, a major rock festival intended to
bring good times and fun to Santiago let in one bad ship with stowaways who
bring the dark vibes and anti-pop. Look out for minimal solo guitar
bizzareness and drone/beat action at the Matucana 100 Saturday March 28.
Brooklyn underground stalwarts Tall Firs have sent 1/3 of their band to
Santiago for reconassaince. These guys are by nature pack animals, so when
one gets separated from the herd they are prone to erratic behaviour. Wear
protective gear if you want to get close (falconry gauntlet/sneezeguard).
The next time he swings at the strings will it be a strangled arpeggio or
will a blistering sheet of feedback pour forth or will he miss the guitar
completely? Does even he know?
JEREMY LEMOS/STEVE SHELLEY/MATT ZIVICH
Jeremy Lemos is one of the insaniacs in the Chicago drone duo WHITE/LIGHT,
who have been described by the Chicago Reader as “disembodied reverberations
and deep tectonic shivers that you experience as much with the follicles and
gut as with the ears.” Matt Zivich is an electronics wizard and we hope they
let him on the plane with whatever he cooks up for this show. Steve Shelley
plays drums in Sonic Youth.
