QUINTRON AND MISS PUSSYCAT
Quintron has been making genre-defying noise and “Swamp-Tech” dance music in New Orleans for over fifteen years. The majority of his ten full-length albums have the psychedelic soul of New Orleans garage R&B filtered through a tough distorted Hammond B-3 and a cache of self-made electronic instruments. He has also released strange soundscapes based on inner-city field recordings of frogs and neighborhood ambiance. Quintron regards his most significant creation to be his patented instrument called the DRUM BUDDY, a light activated analog synthesizer that creates murky, low-fidelity, rhythmic patterns.
The Quintron and Miss Pussycat live show is one of barely controlled electronic chaos, “Swamp-Tech” dance beats, small explosions, clothes, and entertaining puppet stories. You can experience them live at their own secret club, the Spellcaster Lodge in New Orleans or on one of their many tours around the world. This act somehow has equal relevance in sleazy nightclubs, pizza restaurants, and university lecture halls.
LARRY WISH & HIS GUYS
Larry Wish makes outsider pop, even if the term “outsider pop” is a complete contradiction of terms. […] Crazy Taxi Cool is a stellar exemplification of oddball concentration showcasing art-damaged hurdy-gurdies, pitch bent synth lines, uneasy drones, canned percussion and claustrophobic intonations.
