Tropical Trash
Tropical Trash
Burned minimal ROCK Art sourced from Neither East Nor West, America - Bluegrass state rhythm and white hot wet finger shucked Jazz-Fry tugged from the jowl of the hound.

Big stuff from some reasonable fellows who had YOU in mind! Personal brand of fairly physical Non-Agenda rock Music - ropey poly-boogie on the no-frills end of the contempo rock spectrum - these are adults finding out how to live in any way they please. No messages.

The instrumentation used is a combination of two adults on vocals, playing one guitar and also an electric Bass with a Full Size Child of a reasonable constitution on Drums.

One Long Player (Load Records), Three 7"s (Sophomore Lounge), a plume of tapes n CDRs…freeform hard scrabble to right angle idealistic primary color tunes…paper crawling up the arm of the cop…a fine time.
Thee Open Sex
In 2013, after years in the midwestern freak scene pushing ear splitting cassettes, the rest of the Earth will discover Thee Open Sex. With their first proper full length, they approach the American alienation of Rocket From the Tombs as reductionists, aligning with German art rock robotics from the viewpoint of John Lydon.

While there's a thousand bands mining the 70's German minimalist psyche aesthetic, Thee Open Sex gets down on the Berlin street of Eno or Bowie as much as it explores Can's Inner Space. Songs come unhinged in the the cosmic pathways connecting the trance of Popul Vu, with Eddie Hazel's electromagnetism and the hypnotic thump of "Lust for Life." The captivating aggression in vocalist Miss Mess suggests a spiritual depth while staying grounded on the planet where the Pagans and Dow Jones and the Industrials set up their amps. Her delivery emanates the bad-girl vibes of influential exploitation film "The Switchblade Sisters" instead of New Age ether.
Bitchin Bajas
Bitchin Bajas
Here is a little intro if you are not familiar with the project started in 2010 as solo side project for Cooper Crain, guitarist of Chicago Krautrock heroes Cave. Since then, Dan Quinlivan and Rob Frye joined the band and Bitchin Bajas have got the public attention thanks to a perfect, extensive discography on quality record labels such as Bathetic, Permanent and Drag City. The trio play warm, instrumental, psychedelic and melodic ambient music, mixing minimal 60/70’s electronic with original acoustic elements: flute, saxophone, xylophone, woodwinds to name only a few.
