Giraffes? Giraffes!

~ ~

Giraffes? Giraffes! is a Santa Cruz duo that plays spastic post rock with a touch of free jazz. Its two members are Joseph Andreoli (guitar) and Kenneth Topham (drums), both also members of the larger band The Mothers Eggs.

Ken and Joe grew up in Massachusetts.
Even though they had never met, they both enjoyed the same amusement park. They both liked a ride called the Rotor. You would stand inside the Rotor and it would spin and you would stick to the wall and the floor would drop.
Joe once saw someone puke on the Rotor and it stuck to their face until the ride slowed down.Ken has never seen anyone puke on the Rotor.
Joe and Ken first met while going to college in New Hampshire. Ken studied music, while Joe studied literature.
They drank coffee and talked about the theory that whales were once sea creatures and they evolved into wolf-like creatures that ran on land, but they didn’t like it so they evolved back into sea creatures and eventually became huge fucking whales.
They formed a band.
They can both play guitar and drums, but in GIRAFFES? GIRAFFES! Joe taps and plucks while Ken taps and hits.
Ken and Joe and their very nice and very attractive girlfriends moved to Santa Cruz, California. They like it there. It’s nice outside.
LOVES IN HEAT records released the new GIRAFFES? GIRAFFES! album “More Skin With Milk-Mouth” on December 8th, 2007.

Q and not U - X-Polynation (Burn to Shine)

~ ~

Burn to Shine is an ongoing series of music DVDs created by Trixie DVD, a collaboration between filmmaker Christoph Green and ex-Fugazi drummer Brendan Canty. The filmmakers select a house that is set to be demolished in a certain city and ask a member of a local band to curate the event. In one day they shoot all of the selected bands giving each band an hour to set up and perform with no overdubs or corrections. They document the house's history and subsequent demolition, creating bookends for the performances on the DVD.

Old Time Relijun

~ ~

Old Time Relijun is a three-piece ensemble based in Olympia, Washington. With frequently rotating drummers (the current drummer is Germaine Baca, but past drummers have included Phil Elvrum a/k/a the Microphones), the main stalwarts are Arrington de Dionyso (vocals, guitar. Dionyso is also a respected throat singer and has a degree in ethnomusicology) and Aaron Hartman (stand-up bass). The band has added Aaron’s brother Benjamin to the mix, taking over the horn and woodwind work.

Pulling influences from no-wave sax machine James Chance, Howlin’ Wolf, and Captain Beefheart, Old Time Relijun creates a frenetic, challenging sound. Longtime members of Calvin Johnson’s K Records’ stable, Old Time Relijun has received divided reviews amongst critics. Many critics deride the band for being inaccessible but others see the band as visionary.

While there is a great split over their recorded albums, Old Time Relijun has a solid following amongst anyone who has seen their frenetic live show. In these live shows, it is not beyond Arrington to be playing in nothing more than his tighty whiteys while he and the band kick out the jams.
