TROPICAL TRASH have caused quite a stir with their two 7″ records, Fear of Suffering, and Think Back Kick a Beer, both on Sophomore Lounge. Still Single describes TROPICAL TRASH as an "Excellent combination of thrashing energy and solid ideas that break apart and recombine in novel, tuneful ways." They're just as thrilling live as on record, so don't miss this opportunity to rock out with 'em!
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.

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.
