More on Saint Louis

For those who are interested, a re-post from Dustin's (Apop/Eugenics Council) write-up on the Troniks/Chondritic Sound forum:

"Worm Hands & Ghost Ice both put on shorter sets then usual. Worm Hands was missing a member, but Josh manged to provide plenty of low bass drones and madman vocals to keep everyone happy. Ghost Ice sets are getting stranger and stranger. Very glitchy analog sounds, nice panning, and always building in momentum. Ghost Ice has developed some very unique sounds and a style all of his own. I look forward to the day when Ghost Ice finally gets around to releasing material. More people need to hear his sounds. Following Ghost Ice Peter showed his films upstairs in the shop. If your familiar with Buyers Market, or the collage tracks on Whitehouse cds you can get a pretty good idea what the films where like. Oddly enough some people seemed rather bothered by them and left the shop while they played, but overall they where well received. I personally found them to be a pleasure to watch. Following the films, Eugenics Council played. The line up included D.N.(myself), Rosemary Malign, and Tiffany Minx. Overall pretty happy about the performance and the current line up. We managed to get through the entire set without any major gear failure, and Tiffany I think pulled off the Fear cover quite well. More shows and recordings with this line up is imminent. After a few altercations involving a girl and a lead pipe, sweeping away the broken glass and a few other inconveniences Phillip and Mark took the "stage". Mark and Phillip have a really great dynamic onstage together, one of the best I've ever seen. Phillips vocals where loud and clear, and the digital glitches from the laptop seemed to be timed to Phillips crotch rubs and nipple tweaking, all the while Mark provided thick and filthy synth lines. Phillip had to warn people a few times throughout the set that they must back up if he was to continue. This show was by far the best I have seen in a long time, enjoyed the C.E. set more then any of the post Sotos Whitehouse shows I have seen."

Consumer Electronics in Saint Louis

That was quite a show! Thanks to Dustin, Tiffany, and everyone else at Apop for hosting this one. Thanks to Philip, Pete, and Christian, for the amusing trip opportunity. It was great to see and to talk to various Saint Louis friends during the course of the night. It is always a pleasure to see/hear Ghost Ice and Worm Hands play. And that was my first-ever Eugenics Council show... Intense! I have already played my recording of the Consumer Electronics set a few times, and it came out really well. I know that Chad was taking photographs... anyone else? We played a longer set than in Chicago and the audience energy was so much better in Saint Louis. We started off with a ten-minute instrumental piece before Philip broke into vicious vocal mode. I was not 100% thrilled with my synth during the first part, but things really seemed to gel when Philip kicked into gear, forthwith. The vocal part of the set lasted for about 25 minutes, with only a small break towards the end to calm down the crowd, which was seething forward, threatening to topple the gear and APOP's sound equipment. Thanks to Dustin for traffic control and thanks to Josh from Worm Hands' girlfriend, Kristin, for taking over on my synth for a moment, while I went into the crowd. We wrapped up with something almost atmospheric, and a bit less "threatening," which sounded really nice to me. I ate the worst BLT of my life on the way there but on the way back I had a tasty breakfast "shoe." Once again, Starbucks banana-chocolate Vivanos saved the day. As did the Stranglers...

Every chance that I take

Jasmine, I saw you peeping
As I pushed my foot down to the floor
I was going round and round the hotel garage
Must have been touching close to 94
