• itchy-o From the Overflowing (CD, £11.50)

    label: alternative tentacles

    Crash Worship meets The Residents with alumni from the Extra Action Marching Band! Follows up 2009’s Burn The Navigator. Captures sonically the apocalyptic spectacle of their well known live shows. If one hasn’t experienced the disorienting power of this throbbing fifty-piece troupe of masked chaos, this is another chance to join the apocalyptic party that is Itchy-O. Infamous from Colorado to Tasmania for astounding unsuspecting audiences with their aural and visual insanity, the band returns to unleash a fresh new album to add to their legendary live spectacle. They are the most unique band Jello Biafra has signed to Alternative Tentacles in many years! Based in Denver, Colorado, their percussion-centred electronic performance hive-mind has declared war on today’s predictable mediocrity and blindsided fans with their unique music and astonishing performances since forming in 2009. From The Overflowing is the follow-up to their full-length debut Burn The Navigator which was released in 2014. This new album is charged with the same sonic fury of their live shows delivered by a driving drum corps battery and taiko drummers along side Spaghetti Western guitar licks, snake-charming bass lines, and a rich arsenal of dark electronics including synthesisers, theremin and vocoders. The troupe completely engulfs and immerses the listener from every angle in a pounding electric bog of music and ephemera. Tracks : 1. An Eagle Brought Me Honey 2. NGC 2070 3. From The Overflowing 4. Witch’s Foot 5. New Hunt 6. Blood Moon 7. Magic Square 8. Larrz Fa-Fa Romp 9. Mystrabia – Under The Lake 10. Gallow’s Disco 11. Solve Et Coagula
