Nambucca Live Presents:
The Devil has always been there. He is the great outsider, the original iconoclast. He is a conniving little shit and never seems to tire of giving humanity a wedgie or a wet willie just for a laugh. The Devil is capable of taking many forms. He can exist as one being or spread out amongst many. He can present himself as an ordinary man or as a horrific cloven-hoofed beast depending on his mood. Above all else, The Devil lives to corrupt, to adulterate, to defile.
Electric Six has often used The Devil as subject matter for its songs because of that last bit, the part about corruption and adulteration. That’s what Electric Six has been trying to do with its music now for quite some time!!!! We want to corrupt young women….just like The Devil!!! There’s nothing more rewarding than the seduction of a young innocent maiden, forcing her to wear demonic dresses, levitating her towards the great fiery skull and watching her eyes turn black as she gives into evil and becomes the bride of The Devil!!!! That….is why we started this band….to help women realize their potential as sexy evil maidens with eyes reflecting the utter darkness of a corrupted soul.
With its fourteenth studio album Bride of the Devil, Electric Six examines the concepts of evil and corruption, humanity’s various falls from grace, the nine circles of purgatory and of course, the internet itself. Bride of the Devil opens with the thunderous opener “The Opener”, a bombastic celebration of the arena rock Electric Six never got to play. The next two numbers are textbook ear worm guitar pop numbers that deal with debilitating income inequality and nepotism (“Daddy’s Boy”) and the horrors of being forced into a pool of toxic waste by an a rabid Doberman trained to kill (“(It Gets) (A Little) Jumpy”).
And then we get to the title track, a radio anthem, where it all becomes clear that The Devil is a metaphor for Russia and the United States is the young girl who is seduced, corrupted and wedded into a Satanic covenant with the beast. It’s all there in black and white. The Carrie Underwood-esque lyrics alongside a backdrop of vodka and caviar and backchannels and Seychllian bank accounts. That’s how they did it. They went after our country performers and got the rubes to feel good about being Russian assets. And still, it is the feel-good anthem of the summer.
Finally, the haunting album closer “Worm In the Wood” is Electric Six at its most serious, most tender and emotional. Haunting. Effervescent. Corrupt. Jaundiced. Tired.
So there you have it. Electric Six is back with its fourteenth record and it’s poppy and feel-good, as well as heavy, both sonically and lyrically. Our sound will corrupt you and enslave you as the beautiful demonic bride you know you truly are. Fraulein, take this severed hand with it’s creepy long nails from the beginning of time. To do so is truly thine destiny.
Come see Electric Six on the “Russia, If You’re Listening” tour this fall and into 2019. Bride of the Devil will be released on Metropolis Records on October 5, 2018 world-wide.
My Fiasco are a London-based, 5-Piece, Pop Rock band with one aim: To write, release, and relentlessly perform the most infectious and melodic tunes possible!
My Fiasco began life when Steve Potter, a budding brummy songwriter/guitarist arrived in the big smoke and was introduced to singer Patsy Lowe through a musician friend in early 2016. The plan was for Patsy to provide vocals on a few of Steve’s tracks in view to him finding a vocalist (as the two had different ideas on music styles at the time). But after a few jam sessions they not only got on like a house on fire but had the makings of an exciting new project neither one wanted to let go of!
Rehearsals continued in Patsy’s front room in Dalston for a few weeks, then they decided to bite the bullet and hit an open mic in Camden.
A few months went by with with no joy finding musicians that fit the Fiasco, until the musical gods shone a light on us and brought us the talented drummer Erin Wayne! Fresh off the plane from Oz she fit in immediately.
Another few months went by…… auditioning countless bassists, to no avail AND THEN! Double trouble appear as if by magic. The fantastic pair that are Dan Munoz and John Watts. Not only had we hit the jackpot and found our long dreamed of bassist, John. But we also were blessed with another very talented guitarist Dan.
DJ’s afterwards to dance with you till 2.30am!
